    I shrunk an NTFS partition, freeing up some space and moved an Ext3 partition to the left to cover that space.
    This is the current state:
    Before that, drive C: was 100GB and the unallocated space didn't exist.

    Unluckily, PPM crashed midway through the operation, and now drive I: contains the successfully moved Ext3 header, boot record and some files, while the "tail" of the data is in the unallocated space.

    Is it possible to either resume the move operation, or determine where the split is, so I can manually move the raw data of the unallocated space to the Ext3 partition?

    Any other tips you'd suggest for this?

    Thank you.

    1. At the moment you are all OK, both OS work, Windows and Linux?
    2. You want to move Linux Swap adjacent to Ext3, and then compress the Extended partition, or on the contrary expand Ext3 to the border of Swap?
    For operations with Linux partitions I would prefer to use something like GParted.
    You started a pretty dangerous operation, IMHO.
    Sorry for my english.
