Topic: [SOLVED] GParted 0.4.5 NTFSResize bug "Current NTFS volume size" bug
Stop me if you've heard this one before: So I was resizing the wife's desktop machine, with only a partial backup, since I wanted to convert it easily into an ESX4i machine from a USB boot, and use the last 1/3 of the SATA HDD as hopefully local storage. So I'm not smart enough to do a full backup despite warnings, and I resized the C: on the box, and XPProSP2 totally bluescreened and rebooted on boot. And then I cursed such that, had a passing infantryman heard me he'd be instantly moved and would buy me booze in support. Sadly, there was none.
The bizarre promise of a magic fix with only the cost of a few diagnostic commands has calmed me, and I've regged and am posting now with so much hope. I'm on GParted 045, it seems, off the live CD, if it's any added help.
Here's my offering:

Oh gurus of the hidden mysteries partitioned off from normal sight, should I begin fleeing now, or is my situation one from which I can be saved? I should mention that my wife's red hair and vivid green eyes warn passers-by as to her strong Scottish bloodline, true but for the barest of Irish influences; rather like vivid fauna markings in nature, really. If I can end with "but these nice people saved the machine and your newborn nephew's pictures," I'll be your best friend forever.
