Topic: SOLVED ntfs shrinking resulted in size mismatch/windows 7 corruption
i read the postings which are on the same problem in a way and hope to have mine resolved as well.
i wanted to shrink the windows 7 partition on sdb (all of the 160G disk) back to 120G.
(windows 7 calls sdb C:, and the part of sda that has ntfs partition D:)
(the shrinking was initiated because i wanted to install fedora 11 in raid0 layout on the last 40G of sda + sdb.)
a week ago i ran fedora 11 live cd. i installed gparted via software installer. so as the live cd, gparted was only installed in memory.
i than shrank sdb1 back to 120G, log did not report any error. this log wasn't saved.
after that windows 7 had a bsod while booting. error: unmountable_boot_volume. win7 rescue was not able to repair.
gparted reported something was wrong with sdb1 and also i saw a report on the ntfs size mismatch.
what details i need to produce to fix sdb1?
