Filesystem check failed!

QTParted won't resize my NTFS partition, because it has "121 accounting cluster mismatches". I have done everything that has been suggested to me so far being "defrag and run checkdisk".
I don't know what to do. Your help will be appreciated.

I've had similar problems using qparted. It doesn't seem to have the full functionality of parted.

My suggestion, try the command line version: parted. Or perhaps cfdisk.

Note: if you are successful at making size changes, before you do anything else, reboot.

I once made the mistake of not rebooting after partition changes, and ended up with overlapping partitions. My only option was to delete the partitions I'd created/resized, and do it all over again.
