Gutsy can't resize Vista NTFS
Nominated for Gutsy by Martin Olsson
I booted Gutsy Tribe 4 live CD on a machine which normally runs Vista (at least Vista was on it when I bought it and now I'm looking for a way to install Ubuntu instead). Anyway, I launched the partition editor gparted from "Applications :: System Tools :: Partition Editor". I notice a warning icon next to my Vista partition. I right-click the Vista NTFS partition and a message is displayed saying that some checksum is wrong and that I should boot into Windows and run "chkdsk /f".
I open up Wikipedia article about "ntfsresize" and it says Vista partitions are fully supported since version 126.96.36.199 however, gutsy currently ships with ntfsresize 1.13.1 and I believe this is the problem. The bottom line is:
If you upgrade from 1.13.1 to 188.8.131.52 Gutsy will get full Vista NTFS resize support. This is a small amount of job for a big amount of win.
