I have one machine that I've used for a while (Ubuntu 6.10 through 8.10 on it)... I minimized the Windows XP NTFS partition to expand the space for Ubuntu. Now I have a need to re-expand the NTFS partition (putting Ubuntu on a different machine), so I imaged/"ghosted" the drive over to a spare one, then used GParted (on 8.04.1 liveCD) to minimize the Ubuntu partition and expand the Windows XP NTFS to fill the extents of the drive.
GParted shows the NTFS partition as 70GB and the used space as 14GB, as intended. When I boot Windows XP and launch Windows Explorer within this partition, it shows only 14GB drive size that it had before the 'expansion'.
Any suggestions for fixing? I've tried "chkdsk /F" and defragmenting from Windows, a Windows based partitioner to nudge the size a slight amount to see if that would fix, and nothing so far. Been too long away from Windows so I've exhausted the ideas I've come up with.
