I have been trying to resize my NTFS partition which contains WindowsXP. I want to take it and make most of it a FAT32 partition for I can share files between windows and my two linux distros. I am currently running Mandriva 2006 and Xandros 3.0 DE. I got all three installed and each are bootable. I have tried using the Mandriva disk resize utility but it gives me an error each time. The error is as follows:
Space in Use 13434 (40.7%)
Collecting resize constraints...
WARNING: This disk has bad sector! This can cause reliablity problems!
ERROR: The NTFS volume has.
I ran scandisk at windows start up it fixed errors and on it retried and this says there are still errors, then i ran a diagnostic program I downloade from maxtor and it said the drive had errors and it fixed the errors as well. But it still says the drive has errors. ALSO ironically when I installed Xandros 3.0 DE I used it's install wizard to resize my windows drive to make room for another etx3 linux native on that drive due ot my current linux drive being full. That resize worked just fine. Is their anyway for I can resize my NTFS partition from either Xandros, or Mandriva, or find a way to fix the errors in it through linux or something. I really need the FAT32 hard drive space. I find it odd that xandros could do it but mandriva can not. Please any advice would be nice..
