Topic: [SOLVED] NTFS Volume size. Need to tell more? HELP

Hi, I did the same and used a bad version of GParted and could need your help. Linux accesses my files, but Windows does not....

OK here parted output:
root@slax:~# parted /dev/sda unit s print

Had no clue which one you need, the main or the one from the erroneous partition, so i upped both. Thx for help.

EDIT: For me both look like I dumped something wrong. Am I right with this conclusion? If yes, what do I have to dump if sda2 is the bad one and how? Otherwise... HAALP! There are some important files on it...

EDIT2: Fixed it myself. You really need to fix your Fixup Manual to not state that you always have to dump from Sector 63, more at the start of the NTFS Partition you wanna fix. For me it was: skip 204802048 and tadaa, working.
