[SOLVED] problem resizing ntfs partition
Here's my problem: i wanted to resize my windows vista ntfs partition in order to make it smaller without losing data. First I used ntfsresize and then fdisk to create the new partition. All went quite good: i could resize the vista partion and now it's working.
The problem now is that fdisk is not able to create a new partion with the free space that the resizing left. Although there are free sectors there, it says that "no free sectors available".
Here's my fdisk output:
Disk /dev/sda: 120.0 GB, 120034123776 bytes

Partition table entries are not in disk order
Command (m for help): n
No free sectors available
Thanks in advance!!
