Before I begin, I just want to thank in advance anyone who is able to help me with this problem. I’m currently using Acronis Disk Director Suite 10.0 build 2,160 on an XP system with all the service pack updates. My main HD, which is a WD 500GB Caviar Green drive, was partitioned into C: (35GB), F: (45GB), G: (65GB), and H: (320GB). C: was my boot drive, F: held my programs, G: held work files, and H: held entertainment files. And now for the problem. I was going to install a second OS so my plan was to move the data on G: to a external HD; then take 5GB from G: and give it to F:, take 25GB from G: and give it to H:, and finally rename G: to E: (E: was my media card reader and could easily be disconnected to allow the drive letter change without causing issues). After copying the data from G: to my external HD, I figured it was a good idea to reformat G: prior to making any other changes which I did without error. Then I attempted to move 5GB from G: to F: using Partition Magic which was already installed on my system. When I rebooted to allow the size reallocation to process, PM reported error 1611. I searched for this error and came to the belief that it was a PM error and my search lead me to Acronis which was reported to be able to make the change when PM reported error 1611. So I purchased Acronis and started the process again. I then went about moving 5GB from G: to F: using Acronis and my system went through reboot without error. However, this is where problems started. I checked my new partitions and realized that F: had acquired the additional 5GB which brought the partition size to 50GB but G: was no longer being recognized by windows and oddly enough my media reader which was listed as E: had now become G: but functioned properly when a card was inserted. The other 3 partitions, C:, F:, and H: were fine and were accessible. I then moved on to trying to figure out what happened. When I opened Acronis again, it was able to recognize what used to be G: and recognized the correct size, but it no longer reported the drive letter as G:; it actually reported no drive letter but it did show the drive label. I also tried to check the drives using PM but PM reported the entire physical drive as “Bad” and gave error 160 which based on searching indicates Bad Disk Geometry. Of course, I put little faith in PM or what it reports at this point considering Acronis appears much more robust than PM. I then checked the drives using Windows disk management software and it does recognize what used to be G: without the drive letter but it does report the correct size. So at this point, 3 of the 4 partitions are working and have no issues, but what used to be G: is non accessible and not reporting correctly through Windows. Since it is 60GB, I can’t just let the space sit unusable moving forward. I haven’t made any additional changes except for backing up C: and F: since they are my boot drive and program drive using Norton’s Ghost just in case I ultimately have to lose everything and start from scratch. Right now, my only thought is to delete what used to be G: partition via Windows Disk Management and hopefully get it back as my intended 60GB G: drive and continue on my intended way. But I figured it was best to come here and ask for any input as my main concern is that if I delete what remains of the G: partition, do I run any risk of corrupting the other partitions or losing the ability to bring what used to be G: back? So any thoughts or input as to the best way to go about restoring G: to working function would be greatly appreciated. If anyone needs any more information, please let me know and I’ll do my best to provide the specifics.
