    Hello, I would like to know how paragon marks hard disks to indicate pending operations, because I seem to have exited paragon mid operation during a partition resize. Because of this, every time I start paragon partition manager, I cannot advance to the normal manager as the program prompts me that I need continue my previous operations. If I click "no", it then says a hard disk IO error occured on the disk it was trying to read. Then it asks whether to ignore the error, if I do ignore the error, the program crashes in the module "hdm.dll".

    The problem is I began using the filesystem as it after exiting mid-operation on accident, so now the previous ext4 partition that was being resized no longer exists, which is fine.

    So this is a question for the developers since I can't really find the solution anywhere else on the net, googling the keywords in the error doesn't bring any relevant results.

    If a developer does comes across this, or anyone else who has had it before (I hope they will), here's the crash info:

    Have you attempted to use the Recovery CD to attempt to complete the interrupted operation? If not please attempt that.

    Well that's the thing, I don't want to complete it. After I interrupted the operation, the partition I was resizing disappeared. So I used gpart on linux to expand an ntfs partition on the same disk. After doing this, and occupying the partition with nearly 80% of space which dwarfed what the disappeared partition was.

    So you can see what I'm getting at here, I already have numerous programs installed. It wasn't until recently I found out I couldn't run Paragon to resize another one of my disks. Surely there has to be some utility out there to clear the operational status?

    Use the recovery CD, update the partition boot record and then the master boot record and let me know if you are still receiving the message
