Growing and shrinking are dynamic with volumes. You just can't resize below what is used.

HI Scott,

Thanks for your reply..

The above volume is flexible volume and of 1 TB size with 500 GB utilized data. We are shrinking with 200 GB on that.

This is the situation here.

Shrinking to 800gb can be done dynamically with a resize
