I tried it, but either I did not understand what I should do, either it
does not work.

IIRC, I choosed to modify the partition. Then I moved the cursor on the
size. I then choosed 80% 

And it did not see anything. It does not changed anything.

Does someone succed to resize a ntfs partition with partman ?
