Read the "Recommended Preparations" parts.
Hopefully, you ran scandisk and defrag not too long ago, if not, do it now.

Backup your personal files, (anything you consider important).
It is risky business any time you resize partitions.

You've not told us the size of your hard drive, or whether it is a desktop
or laptop, but if possible, add another hard drive and you'll avoid all
these problems.
