Today I went to resize one of my drivers partitions as I am currently switching from Ubuntu to ArchLinux as my main OS. However when I go into Gparted I get the error "Cant have overlapping partitions". Checking Fdisk gives the below resolt:
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 2048 206847 102400 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT /dev/sda2 206848 318586879 159190016 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT /dev/sda3 770101248 976773167 103335960 83 Linux /dev/sda4 318588926 770103295 225757185 5 Extended Partition 4 does not start on physical sector boundary. /dev/sda5 318588928 770101247 225756160 83 Linux
Looks like sda4 is overlapping with sda3. I know my partitions are a big of a mess, one of the reason I am moving from Ubuntu so I can remove the sda4 and 5 leaving just Windows (sad1+2) and arch linux (sda 3).
So I guess my question is how to fix this overlapping. if possible by shirking sda4/5 so there is no longer a over lap?
I would prefer to keep retain my data but everything is backed up so if there realy is no other option I could to a complete clean install... but why I am here is to see if there is anything way first.
Thank you and if you need any more info let me know!
