I have Windows 8.1 installed exclusively on 1Tb volume. Recently I installed Ubuntu 14.04 on the other disk and want to access this big drive in read-write mode. However, Windows placed it's
hiberfil.sys file onto it thus preventing me to mount it in rw mode. I tried to disable Windows quick boot feature (worked in Win8) but it seems not working.
So I decided to reduce
C: size and create shared partition but faced with another problem: NTFS has a copy of allocation table in the middle of the disk and Windows doesn't want to move it. So I can only free up to 470~ Gb when I need about 840 Gb for the share and 160 Gb for
I tried to repartition with Paragon Partition Manager and Acronis Disk Director. I tried to use Gparted. All of them failed. So I wander if method of resizing NTFS partition beyond the half does exist or I need to reinstall Windows to achieve the desired result.
I don't want to reinstall Windows, so I hope someone advise me a good working partition tool or the method to unlock the drive.
Thanks in advance!
