I want to resize one of my partitions with norton partition magic.
When I want to resize it, partition magic shows an error.
Information mismatch in directory entry
A file attribute stored in a file record is different from the attribute stored in its directory entry.
How can I solve this problem?
I use windows XP, Does knoppix works for it?
I boot from the drive, I don't think it's a good idea to repartition while in the middle of using the drive. Makes things easier.
Just a warning, make sure you are backed up. I once lost an operating system partitioning with gparted. Not that it was gparted's fault--I did not read the README file.
chwsks is 110% correct
BACK IT UP!!
Doesnt matter what utility you use(or what your doing) ALWAYS back up your data
All I can say is that out of all the tools ive used gparted always saved the day
gParted is an excellent partitioning program. Shame it doesn't have fdisk's "fix" command to fix partition ordering, so I have to use both sometimes.
Why not use Windows XP's partitioning program? I've used it before, myself.
It's nowhere near as powerful as gParted. It's a reasonable partitioner but it's not really in the same league as gParted.
