Have you got a complete backup image of your hard disk on other media? Unless you are prepared to lose everything, don't re partition anything without that safety net.

Having said that I've not had any problems using MiniTool.

1. Yes, your are making your C: partition smaller.

2. From Windows Vista onwards, GPT partition size is normally limited by the disk size. GPT (GUID Partition Table) allows 18 exabytes but Windows is limited to 256TB for the file systems.

Even if your disk has MBR (Master Boot Record) partitions, e.g. was done under Windows XP, you can still have a 2TB partition using standard features. If you need more, you can get another TB or two but it's better to move from MBR to GPT.
Better to light a candle ... than to curse the darkness.
