I have Windows and Ubuntu in dual boot. I wanted to shrink to maximum the Windows partition to free some space for my
/home partition in Ubuntu. I previously asked a question about the best method to achieve this:
my previous question
(note: I don't care about not being able to boot Windows anymore, because it doesn't boot anyway.)
So I did exactly what I had been advised to do in the above thread, and everything went fine until GParted sent an error message during the resize operation of the Windows partition.
I have written down the errors and I also saved the details of the GParted fail, in the form of an html file (I don't know how to read this file but I can give it if needed).
The error appeared when the following command was being run by GParted:
ntfsresize --force --force -s[...(some numbers)]
/dev/sda5 is the Windows partition I want to shrink).
The errors looked like this:
Failed to open inode[...]
with index: input/output error
After that, the next operation were not carried out and the GParted windows returned to the initial state.
What should I do?
