Topic: [SOLVED] cannot access NTFS after resizing operation aborted
dear helpers :-)
i recently tried to resize (shrink) my ntfs partition with gparted (version 0.5.1) from an kubuntu 10.4 live cd. unfortunately the operation aborted and now i cannot access the drive anymore. the information gparted gives me is:
ntfsresize v2.0.0 (libntfs 10:0:0)
Device name : /dev/sda5
NTFS volume version: 3.1
Cluster size : 4096 bytes
Current volume size: 72727888384 bytes (72728 MB)
Current device size: 63293497344 bytes (63294 MB)
ERROR: Current NTFS volume size is bigger than the device size!
Corrupt partition table or incorrect device partitioning?
Unable to read the contents of this file system!
Because of this some operations may be unavailable.
is there any hope or is the data on the drive lost (i have a 2 days old backup - so it does not capture all the data on the drive....)?
searching for solutions, i found this forum....
i'd appreciate any help! thanks in advance
