Topic: [SOLVED] ERROR: Current NTFS volume size is bigger ... etc.
I have simmilar problem what the other.
After resizing partition i've got information "ERROR: Current NTFS volume size is bigger than device size".
Now I can't mount windows xp partition in Ubuntu, it's available but can't read. TestDisk can see NTFS partition but can't read any files.
Partition was 80GB, means whole disk, after resize about 30GB. Next, I installed Ubuntu 10..04lts using rest of free space.
Ubuntu is finding ntfs partition, but doesn't find windows installation. TestDisk can see partition but can't read any data and print information, data-files are damaged.
All tools I use are from my Ubuntu, only GParted was used from LiveCD.
I did as these http://gparted-forum.surf4.info/viewtopic.php?id=13937 tutorial guide me but after GParted running in Ubuntu couldn't see NTFS file system. File system was unknown. So i've decided to back up copy of my myCurrentPbr.pbr file.
results before change length of sectors.
