    Hi,

    I'll try to shrink my Fusion Drive, using on topic I found here in MacRumors, I'll try this:

    Code:
    diskutil cs resizeStack D89FC684-BC9E-481B-BA27-AECBB3B3974A 189D7950-175A-4900-8AE7-1C300D24A3C3 873.2G jhfs+ Media 120G
    [/code']
    
    My diskutils cs list :

    but, when I'll try the command, this error appears:

    Started CoreStorage operation
    Checking prerequisites for resizing Logical-Physical volume stack
    Error: -69742: The requested change in size is too small

    How can I shrink my HDD space used by FusionDrive?

    Thanks!

    Are you on an iMac or Mac Pro or are you using an SSD in Optical Bay + HDD in Sata on a MacBook Pro?

    You should try these commands, you did not specify a size that's why it gave you an error. They take a while to complete and it may seem the machine has frozen but it's still working.

    This will reduce the size of the fusion drive by 256GB.
    In simple terms "disk utility" "storage service" "action is to resize volume" "Specified disk is the ID for the fusion drive" "the new size of the fusion drive, in this case 617gb which is 256gb less than before"
    Code:
    diskutil corestorage resizeVolume D89FC684-BC9E-481B-BA27-AECBB3B3974A 617g
    This will reduce the size of the HDD space allocated by 256GB.
    In simple terms "disk utility" "storage service" "action is to resize the disk" "specified disk ID is for the 750gb HDD" "the new size of the HDD will be 493gb, which is 256gb less than before"
    Code:
    diskutil corestorage resizeDisk 189D7950-175A-4900-8AE7-1C300D24A3C3 493g
    This will reduce size of the fusion drive by 256gb and then reduce the hard drive size by 256gb. That means you will have 256gb of unallocated space which you can use for Boot Camp or anything else you want. Feel free to adjust the sizes by what you want.

    Thanks mseth,

    But, when I try to use:
    diskutil corestorage resizeDisk 189D7950-175A-4900-8AE7-1C300D24A3C3 493g

    this error appears:

    Error: -69720: There is not enough free space in the Core Storage Logical Volume Group for this operation

    here is my new diskutil cs list after the first command:

    Code:
