  • So because it must be entered in the size of MB so you change 10 GB to MB.
  • That is, every 1 GB = 1024 MB, which means that if you want to divide the 10 GB partition, write 10240 in that column.
  • Or if you want to divide 15 GB then write 15 x 1024 = 15360.
  • And like that for any size.
  • Make sure the size of the partition to be divided does not exceed the number in "Size of available shrink space in MB:" if it is more then the partition will not be divided.
8. Click the Shrink button. And wait for the partition division process.
