Topic: Disk size not adjusted after GParted [SOLVED]
I increased the size of boot partition of a Windows XP system with GParted, but the size of the hard drive remained the same. Is there a way to fix the size of the drive? I'm missing 9 GB, more as half of my drive.
I used GParted on the Ubuntu 6.10 live CD. Latest Ubuntu; I assume also last GParted.
After repartitioning I rebooted Windows. Chkdsk ran; I don't remember any unusual messages. Windows runs fine.
The C: drive says it has a total capacity of 6,83 GB with 970 MB free. This also was the size of the original; partition. Computer Management/Storage/Disk management gives the same disk size, but a partition size of almost 16 GB. This is the same (or similar) as the size I changed the partition to with GParted.
Is there a way to increase the size of the disk drive to that of the partition? Could I use Norton Ghost to save the partition and restore it to a reformated larger one? Can I do this with a system disk?
Of course the whole exercise is to save me having to reinstall Windows and 100+ applications.
