Topic: [Solved] Current NTFS volume size is bigger than the device size!
Hi Folks. I seem to have made a mess of my partition table. I was trying to resize my NTFS partition using GPARTED. The end result is as follows:
Check and repair file system (ntfs) on /dev/sda5 00:00:01 ( ERROR )
calibrate /dev/sda5 00:00:01 ( SUCCESS )
size: 419612672 (200.09 GiB)
check file system on /dev/sda5 for errors and (if possible) fix them 00:00:00 ( ERROR )
ntfsresize -P -i -f -v /dev/sda5
ntfsresize v2.0.0 (libntfs 10:0:0)
Device name : /dev/sda5
NTFS volume version: 3.1
Cluster size : 4096 bytes
Current volume size: 224731066880 bytes (224732 MB)
Current device size: 214841688064 bytes (214842 MB)
ERROR: Current NTFS volume size is bigger than the device size!
Corrupt partition table or incorrect device partitioning?
I see that this BUG(?) has been solved elsewhere on this forum, but I'm not confident enough to apply those solutions to my own system (being unsure as to whether those solutions are universally applicable).
I'm presently writing from PartedMagic. Any guidance will be deeply appreciated.
