I have a system that was originally had Win NT. I added System Commander (SC7) and then added W2K. The relevant partitions are:
- 0 - Primary - MultiFAT (Has Win NT, mapped to C:)
- 1 - Extended - with many logical partitions:
- 1.1 NTFS which has W2K and is mapped to D:
- 1.2 other logical partitions which are irrelevant to this
D: was getting full. It needed room for virus definitions and Windows upgrades. In the past, I had simple used SC7 to resize D: without problems. So I did it again this time. However, upon finishing, I got the message "Unable to create partition". It also marked the partition as unformatted. I checked that the files on the disk were still there using SC7's Partition Explorer, and they were there. I continued and the system managed to boot up fine anyways.
Then I rebooted the system again. This time, I got a message saying "INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE". I went back in to SC7 and to Partition Commander, and it was still saying that the partition was unformatted but the Partition Explorer still showed the files on the system. I finally decided to resize the partition again, figuring that this would force a rewrite of the partition information.
That seemed to work, until I had to reboot again. Now I can't see the files using Partition Explorer, and the Resize button is now disabled.
