Topic: Please help me! - "...NTFS Volume Size is bigger than the device size"
I used 0.5.2.9 GParted live to resize a NTFS partition from 152,39 to 80gb and then I put some extended partition in place of the unallocated space (the remaining 72,39gb)
Now ntfsresize show me this message :
ntfsresize v2.0.0 (libntfs 10:0:0)

ERROR: Current NTFS volume size is bigger than the device size!
Corrupt partition table or incorrect device partitioning?

I have read the info on http://gparted.sourceforge.net/larry/ti … etails.htm but i cannot find out how to save the .pbr file on an usb drive because I am a very beginner. I tried using command line but when I typed as follows:
root@GParted:~# mkdir /tmp/usb
root@GParted:~# mount /dev/sda1 /tmp/usb/
root@GParted:~# cp gparted_details.htm /tmp/usb/
...the program said that it cannot locate the file "gparted_details.htm", despite the file was saved in a root folder.
I have downloaded hexedit for editing the pbr file but it seems worthless at this time.
Please someone explain how can I create a .pbr file and export it to an usb drive, so as to edit the file and to load the changed .pbr file to my system.
