    I am getting the following error when I check the properties of my hard drive: "File system Error: Block bitmap corrupted"

    I cannot change the size of my partition. The only choice I have is to create a new partition of 7 megs from unallocated space. Windows says I have over 12 gigs of free hard drive space on my primary partition C: which I understood this program could create new partitions from.

    I also have run the acronis report which I could post, but it is big and looks like a bunch of mumbo jumbo....

    Please help.

    Thank you.

    You should try checkdisk!

    Do the fallowing

    1. Click on start and choose "run.." command
    2. Type "cmd" and press enter
    3. In Prompt type chkdsk /f and answer "y" to the question
    4. Restart your computer

    Windows will check your disk at start up

    It should do the trick (well, it worked for me)

    Good luck!
