Topic: Using GParted 0.2.5 Live CD - Copy partition problem [SOLVED]
I've been using this hardcore for about two weeks now - no problems until now:
I cannot copy a backup ntfs boot partition I had marked as "hidden"
and paste that partition to the deleted ntfs partition that was at the front "top"
of the drive.
When I right click over the now free space at the front of the drive, "paste" is
not a highlighted option, though it is for any other part of the drive.
When I just enabled the backup ntfs partition as "boot" just from where it is, I am able to still
boot into Linux and almost boot into Windows (I'm sure I'll have to edit the MBR to switch the
positions of the boot and data partitions).
That free space at the beginning of the drive is annoying though! My question is:
1) Is there a way to get a copy of my backup partition to that spot in the front and
2) If not, is there some way to get rid of that free space at the front of my drive
3) All while not compromising my data, though I'm fully aware of the risks of partitioning
drives and most data is backed up anyways so I'm open to any ideas here!
here is a screenie that displays my drive configuration and the problem I have outlined above:
