Topic: SOLVED - NTFS Volume Bigger than Device Size
Everything was going well -- until the end. I am getting the NTFS Volume bigger than device size error. The problem is with sda5 -- I resized this partition (decreased) and increased sda2. I do not have any of the logs for gparted unfortunately.
I used GParted Live v0.5.0-3
The output for fdisk -l -u is as follows:
Disk /dev/sda: 249.4 GB, 249376538624 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30318 cylinders, total 487063552 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0x345698d9 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 63 160649 80293+ de Dell Utility /dev/sda2 * 160650 77031674 38435512+ 7 HPFS/NTFS /dev/sda3 77031675 487058669 205013497+ f W95 Ext'd (LBA) /dev/sda5 77047740 487058669 205005465 7 HPFS/NTFS
The output for parted /dev/sda unit s print is as follows:

Although my post doesn't really look like I am in a panic, I really am! Any help would be great Thanks in advance!
