I have type this command to downsize a NTFS filesystem :

$ ntfsresize --no-action -bs 130946171ki /dev/sda2
ntfsresize v2017.3.23 (libntfs-3g)
Device name        : /dev/sda2
NTFS volume version: 3.1
Cluster size       : 4096 bytes
Current volume size: 239315395072 bytes (239316 MB)
Current device size: 239315398656 bytes (239316 MB)
New volume size    : 134088876544 bytes (134089 MB)

It's now stuck and not showing anything.

iotop says it's still reading the disk :

$ iotop -b -n 1 | grep "^  TID";iotop -p $(pgrep ntfsresize) -b -n 10 | grep ntfsresize
