Topic: Resize Failed
So I have a second drive that originally had two NTFS partitions. Neither partition was being used to boot off of meaning my OS (WinXP) is safely on another drive.
Originally this drive had two partitions: roughly 5G and 27G (in that order). I no longer needed the 5G partition so I had GParted (most recent live cd) remove the partition and resize/move the 27G partition. It was going to take a while so I let it sit overnight. I got an error saying that it couldn't read a particular sector. Unfortunately it was early in the morning and I was still half asleep so I didn't write down exactly what the error was. Currently GParted sees the second 27G partition but it's labelled unknown and there is still the empty 5G space before it. XP no longer recognizes either of the partitions on the drive and prompt to format it.
So I think it's safe to say the data is likely still intact as long as the drive hasn't suffered a hardware malfunction. Any thoughts as to what I can do? If I just remade the 27G partition using fdisk how would I find the sector to have it start on and what would happen to the data already moved?
Looks like my number were off: http://img520.imageshack.us/my.php?image=gpartedlt5.jpg
