resize ntfs fail.

After I tried Ubuntu Linux Live CD , Suddenly I am eager to install Ubuntu linux to my Notebook(For performance issue, I don't use virtual machine).

At first, there is a big problem: harddisk partition. How do I re-partition my harddisk partition without reinstalling Windows XP?? I know the famous software is Partition Magic, but I don't have this software, also Partition Magic is not free.

So I surfed for freeware on internet, and I found Ubuntu Live CD had provided the powerful software: GParted.Here are some useful information:

Then I follow the steps:
  1. Defrag my notebook harddisk.
  2. Execute GParted


Everything should be fine now, but the answer is NO.
After I studied, I found GParted use ntfsresize command to resize ntfs partition. And I tried to use ntfsresize directly, ntfsresize reports: You need to use fdisk to delete the original partition, and specifies new size to create new ntfs partition.

I was wrong here. I deleted the original ntfs partition, and I recreated the partition. But I forgot to specified partition type, then my resiz plan is fail.
After a while, I found I forgot to backup my wife's data. :(

How miserable I am!!
