Manually aborted "Redistribute free space wizard" left donor partition as unformatted I have (or perhaps - had?!) two partitions - a system one with Windows 7 and another one for nearly everything else. I was trying to increase my system partition (with 5GBs) as it was running out of space so i desided to use the "Redistribute Free Space Wizard" of Paragon Partition Manager 11 Personal. Upon start the wizard said it needs to reboot in order to gain exclusive access to my drive. After rebooting it started the procedure which was still not completed after 1 hour has passed. I aborted the operation from the abort command in the interface. Then, Windows booted with the first (system) partition intact while the second has been split into two - one 5GB unallocated space and the rest, what should have been my old partition downsized, is now an inaccesible, unformatted partition! Is all my data gone?! Can i recover the partition? Why i decided to abort: If my understanding of the cryptic data fields in the status of the running wizard is correct: "Done" and "All" (in GBs) mean respectively how much data has and will be written. In my estimate based on Done/All rate of change, it would have taken >16hrs to complete moving just 5GB of free space from one partition to the other! Seems it was moving the whole second partition? I had to do my own time estimate because the program wouldn't give me a correct one - estimated time left kept rising constantly (instead of the opposite!) despite read/write speeds not changing very much. Since i wasn't planning on such a long procedure and i needed my PC for work i decided to "abort" the operation thinking if it was a destructive abort the program would warn me. Instead, it simply asked if i'm sure i want to abort the operation without any notice of what the consequences might be.
