Hi I got a 750GB hdd split in four partitions: 1. 150GB (OS) 2. 20GB (Linux) 3. 130GB (Empty) 4. 450GB (Backup) And I wanted to merge 3. and 4. Paragon Hard Disk Manager told me I had to reboot because some files blocked the action, so I rebooted. Then I got into the program itself in a DOS-like interface where it begins to do it's thing. It's the 450GB who's getting extended, not the other way around. But thing is, the harddrive doesn't make these tickingsounds harddrives usually make when they're working, and it has stood on for almost 3 hours now. "Moving files and directories". "Work time 02:42:54" - updating itself every now and then "Time to finish 01:44:08" - also updating itself every now and then Both numbers are just rising. The "Suboperation progress"-bar is empty The "Merge two partitions into one"-bar is full (green). Done/All/Read/Write is all at 0. Overall progress is full (green). ----- Timers work Harddrive are silent Bars are still ----- Is it stuck here? I don't want to interrupt it so I might get corrupt data. Also, if I have to or the power goes etc. can this operation affect the other partitions (not involved in the merging)? I certainly don't want to lose the OS-partition.. Thanks for any answers and sorry for wall-of-text, ask if you guys need more info!
