When I review the problem I get the following message:
Warning: The disk has bad sector. This means physical damage on the disk surface caused by deterioration, manufacturing faults or other reason. The reliability of the disk may stay stable or degrade fast. We suggest making a full backup urgently by running 'ntfsclone --rescue...' then run 'chkdsk /f /r' on Windows and reboot TWICE! Then you can resize NTFS safely by additionally using the --bad-sectors option of ntfsresize.
This is the computer of a friend I'm looking at, he told me he was repartionning his drives when this happend.
I'm going to run the chkdsk /r again now and then going to try to resize the bad sectors.
Or should I try something else ?
