I am trying to create a new partition in a free slot of an hard drive using the Gnome Disk utility (on 14.04). I always get the message below:
Error creating partition on /dev/sda: Command-line `parted --align optimal --script "/dev/sda" "mkpart logical ext2 119947MiB 225767517695b"' exited with non-zero exit status 1: Error: You requested a partition from 126GB to 226GB. The closest location we can manage is 126GB to 226GB. (udisks-error-quark, 0)
What can be the cause of this? And can it be solved?
Edit: A screen capture detailing the structure of this particular hard drive, with the partition at cause selected:
