enlarged datastore with the other hd, how to reduce now?


Hi! I enlarged datastore with other hard drive. Now I need to decrease it's size. But here is the problem - my virtual hard drive with OS on it already enlarged.

How can I detach physical hard drive without losing all my data on the virtual drive?

I want to create another datastore on the second physical hard drive, for my other OS.

What can i do? I really need help, 'cause I need to make kinda backup OS.


Sorry for my poor English.
