Partitioning why?

I want to install Linux as a second system on a drive but can't partition the drive. Shows that I can squeeze only 2GB

clarification - at such volumes, available free space, you desperately need under hibernation, swap (Vind), and most importantly - updating Windows..
... can delete junk from bold, then it will be easier to solve the problem

after disabling not needed - Yes, defragmentation. but again I recommend a full backup to external media. you need a full defragmentation, then there are probably third-party programs, since Windows tends to defragment files as such

well and support the Council - with the volume (ssd?) put the second disk for another system

why?
Fragmentation of system files. He can't compress if at the end of the section you have is a piece of swap file and the hibernation file for example, VSS or vault.
To get rid of this -
Disable the pagefile, disable hibernation, delete all shadow copies, reboot and make defragmentatie. After defragmentation squeeze and turn it back.

Well, as you already properly noticed to install two systems on the disk this volume does not make sense, the more it seems you have SSD. Then it's all pointless.

Compression and partitioning is quite different. First, Google the instructions for installing Linux on the disk. Then take something like a disk editor from Acronis (never use Windows, if not pity of data) Pereyaslavets your drive and put Linux. But the easiest way to put VirtualBox and without all that it's okay to use several systems at the same time.
As lucky, 50/50. - gregory commented on March 19th 20 at 09:27
