Topic: Status of Current NTFS Volume Size is bigger than the device size bug
Greetings. I've encountered the aforementioned bug today when trying to shrink an NTFS partition on a 1TB drive. The partition took up the whole drive and I wanted to free 32 GB for a Linux install. I used the GParted LiveCD, 0.5.0-3. When the operation failed, I edited the disk's MBR to match the original size of the partition by following a thread that closely matched my scenario: http://gparted-forum.surf4.info/viewtopic.php?id=13768
It is mentioned on the GParted site that "This problem has been fixed starting with GParted Live 0.4.8-6.", but apparently it still persists. A month or so ago I was able to successfully resize and move several NTFS partitions on the same machine using 0.4.6-1 LiveCD. Although I'm glad that I didn't lose any data, I still have to shrink the partition. I'm planning to use 0.4.6-1 for that.
Is there a bug report filed for the latest stable version of GParted?
