Topic: [SOLVED] Current NTFS volume size is bigger than the device size
It seems I am also experiencing this known bug and I messed my Windows 7 Installation.
After resizing and moving the primary boot partition to the right by 2MB gparted is reporting errors and Windows does not boot any longer:
"ERROR: Current NTFS volume size is bigger than the device size!"
From what I can tell the resize and the following ntfschk went fine but after the move the ntfschk reported that error. And now I am stuck with the Desktop of the Live distro I was using for that operation. (PXE version 4.6.1 of partedmagic)
Output from "fdisk -l -u":

I hope this can still be fixed. GParted is refusing to perform any other operation on that partition...
Thanks in adance!
