Topic: The Story Behind My Handle
Hey guys, I'm in somewhat of a stumped state of mind right now.
I was really excited about the pre-rc1 release of vista, so much so that I was willing to resize my C: partition for some extra unallocated space for a new partition. So anyways, I have a crappy refurb 250 sata150 Maxtor, with some bad sectors.
Ive made a mistake that i confess to all you. I ran NTFSresize -b -s200G -v.
Anyways, I tried to create a new partition, and wouldn't you know, only 12 mb of unallocated space. Hmmm i thought to myself. I went into my Windows Explorer to find 126G used and 57G free... capacity 199,999,995,904bytes. Ok, where did the missing 50G disappear to? How do I recover? So far 3 Partition programs see a total capacity of 250G but are unable to successfully resize the partition to its maximum capacity..
Duhh uhmm? What should I do? Practically is welcome.
