Topic: [Solved]Error: Current NTFS Volume Size is bigger than the device size
After reading other similar topics on this issue, it appears that it is case-specific to each person, so I will post my data and hope someone can help me out.
I recently (today) tried to shrink my main partition that has Win XP installed from 500 GB to 350 GB, and create a second 150 GB partition to install Win 7 on.
After applying the operations in GParted, a warning sign appeared next to my old partition. Looking at the information gives:
ntfsresize v2.0.0 (libntfs 10:0:0)
Device name :/dev/sda1
NTFS Volume version: 3.1
Cluster size: 4096 bytes
Current volume size: 500097 MB
Current device size: 342073 MB
ERROR: Current NTFS volume size is bigger than the device size! Corrupt Partition table or incorrect device partitioning?
A thread with a similar problem:
Also I am using the latest version of GParted.
If possible, I would like to fix the MBR/PBR so that the old partition remains 350 GB, so that I don't have to resize it back to 500 GB and can keep the new partition I created.
If that is too much work, or too much of a hassle, any help so that I can boot from my old partition again with BSODing would be extremely appreciated.
