I know this isn't strictly FC, but am running out of harddrive space, and need somewhere to put FC6, when I can psych myself up for another 8days of iso downloads on dialup. There is one fixed drive on this machine, which was all NTFS, but thanks to webmin, is now a mix of NTFS, and FAT32 partitions. I now use one of the 5 1/4 slots for a harddrive caddy, as I run many distro's on this machine. The one I want to resize is the original XP one (preinstalled on the aiii-friend machine), which is now in one of the caddies. Knoppix 5.0's QTparted, version-0.4.5-cvs gets the info ok for hdb (the fixed drive), but when trying to get the info for hda (XP in the caddy) the progress bar on the "get info" pane is at 100% and a few seconds later QTparted crashes. Any suggestions as to what is causing QTparted to crash when trying to get info from the NTFS formatted XP drive? XP is using 8.9GB of a 40GB drive, and the defrag analyse utility shows a lot of data at the beginning of the drive, then a lot of blank space, then another bunch of data with some unmoveable files, but there appears to be at least half of the drive available for resizing. I'm not too bothered about loosing XP, as even though it has quite a few music apps on it, I never use it now, apart from updating the 3rd party security. System restore is disabled, so that Norton Ghost can work on it. Nigel.
