Topic: [SOLVED] Unallocated space and corrupted NTFS after resize
I am trying to recover from what seems crash after or during resize of partition.
Here is what happened:
I wanted to reduce size of disk D of Windows PC, so I can grow disk C. (There is recovery partition between them which I wanted to move after this).
I reduced the size of the second partition from the beginning with 19GB. I took long time because it seems during resize whole partition is moved.
I waited until 55% completed. Partition is ~600GB (~50% full). I had to go so I left the computer. I returned after few days. Computer was still running, but I was unable to wake up the screen. There was no HDD activity.
I restarted it and booted gparted again. The partition size was the same on the graph. And now I have exclamation mark on the partition. The error is:
19GiB of unallocated space within the partition. To grow the file system to fill the partition, select the partition and choose from menu item: Partition - Check
I haven't done Partition - Check.
I ran chkdsk without /f parameter. Result is many (maybe thousand) of records:
File record segment 3F0F4 is an orphan.
TestDisk doesn't seems to see files on the disk. Only few of them. I am doing Deep Partition Search now.
I also tried to mount the partition in linux and during ls command I see multiple I/O errors.
I attached the hard disk to my PC and interrupted chkdsk on boot. When I view the directory structure looks alright.
I am looking for help how to proceed from here.
My guess is that resize was complete. I mean like information was moved, but partition table wasn't updated and/or shrink wasn't completed.
