I resize the disk using the Windows default program.
I don't know why, the extended partition of Linux now result unallocated. I'm sure I don't "touch" the extended partition, and I don't know why that partition now is unallocated.
The extended partition is divided in two:
one I used for my
/home folder, the other for the swap.
My first preoccupation is to don't loose the data in my
/home and I suddently try to take a backup of the folder. Unfortunately linux could see just the
/ ('cause I installed the root and the user folder separately), but when I try to copy the
/home ( I try rsync ) it's impossible to accede on the data (the
/home seems to be empty). 'cause the folder seems to be unallocated.
Warning: extended partition does not start at a cylinder boundary. DOS and Linux will interpret the contents differently.
the situation on my disk is this:
/dev/sda1 ntfs windows(boot) /dev/sda2 ntfs Data /dev/sda3 ext4 / /dev/sda4 extended unallocated !!! (this was the /sda6, my /home) /dev/sda5 swap
So I think that the data was on the disk, but now is unallocated. Is there a way to reallocate it without format all the data? or there are program to recovery data deeply, even if the file system is not allocated?
