Paragon Partition Manager screwed me?

Q: Paragon Partition Manager screwed me?

I was running the defragment function on my primary partition, which runs before windows starts up, and I accidentally shut off my laptop.

Now, when I try to reboot, I get the usual "Toshiba" screen, but it never gets to the loading windows screen.

Been trying to hit F8 to boot into safemode, but to no avail. Can I never access windows again?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I am trying to create another partition so i can triple boot windows xp, vista, and ubuntu. Problem is, no matter what software i use, it doesnt let me make one. In paragon, it says "A new partition cannot be created on this hard disk. Most probably, all primary slots are occupied and there is no extended partition". I know i have enough room, and i did this before, so i dont know what is wrong

I?ve already seen Paragon was giving Partition Manager Pro for free for a short while. I?ve downloaded and installed it successfully. Those who missed that day, can get it till October 25.
Here is the link: Paragon Partition Manager 9.5 As I can understand, they?ve just opened freeware downloads page. And sometimes commercial software will appear there for free. Very friendly I think for me it?s just like I earn 80 bucks for nothing (professional version of Partition Manager 10 costs $79.95)

So, what do we have here (taken from Partition Manager 10 site, but it works for 9.5):
Advanced Partitioning Operations: Enlarge NTFS partitions without rebooting Windows or interrupting your work, repartition hard disks without data loss, redistribute free space between partitions, merge two partitions to one etc.
Apple? BootCamp Support: Redistribute unused space between Mac? OS X and Windows partitions (great for me!)
Initial Backup Facility
Safe Defragmentation Mode
Etc.
Full feature list is here . The difference is that 9.5 doesn?t support Windows 7.
The program runs on Windows 2000, XP and Vista (32 or 64 bit).
And Paragon provides user support only for the promo period. And only on Twitter . No WinPE included.
You will need to input your email on registration page to get a free serial ? that is your only payment for the soft.

The difference is that 9.5 doesn’t support Windows 7.



Actually - they don't claim it - but it does support Windows 7.

I have been using for a while on my 7 x64 - it works perfectly.

It is exactly the same build as the PM10

The only you don't get - is the WinPE disc and Adaptive restore feature. Run off the bootable Linux/dos cd from within the program to get it in bootable form.

Terriffic opportunity to get a great piece of software - Paragon are the best in Hard Disk Management.

Hi, I?m about to commite suicide so I just wanted to make a final query before I do it.

I have a 320 GB western digital HD, it has windows 7 (x64) in one partition and data in the other.
I used paragon partiton manager to redistribute the free space (don?t ask me why didn?t I use the W7 features please). It did, but the partition with all the data was "not formatted". It showed the exact used and free space (so no data loss) but I couldn?t have acces to it. I manged to convert it to NTFS... still showed the right used and free space, but no luck having acces to the files.

So I used the W7 function to check the disk... and after it finishes it the partition with the data is empty, the OS partition is intact, but the other one is empty.

I tried everything, so I?m not actually asking for a solution, my question is:
Given the fact that I haven?t erased the partition or deteled it or have done anything other than redistribute the free space... will a professional HD recovery be able to restore the filesystem or the files?

Thanks in advance.

A:EMpty partition after redistributing free space with paragon manager

Use free Partition Wizard bootable CD which has helped with hundreds of complicated partitioning operations here without a single failure. Partition Wizard

First from the Wizards tab, run Partition Recovery Wizard to see what it finds. When you identify the lost partition by size and space usage, tick the box next to it and restore it.

If this fails, use the Data Recovery Wizard or Recuva data Recovery software.

In the future, always keep your files backed up externally and ask here for exact steps to repartition or "redistribute free space" (whatever that means).

Im in desperate need of help guys. I was using Paragon Partition manager to ``Install a new OS``. It deactivated all my drives including c:\ apart from partition D:\ which it made active and a primary NFTS partition and made me reboot. I planned to install my new OS but my CD was corrupt! I tried to log back in but i just got the message ``NTLDR MISSING``. I have played about with the BIOS setup, i even visited this site: http://tinyempire.com/notes/ntldrismissing.htm to try and create a rebootable USB to reboot my system and login. Thankfully, it worked, but after the windows loading screen it shows a message `autochk not found - skipping` then the screen turns blue and a message comes up with the error `STOP C000021a` appears.

Hi Guys,
I have just used Paragon HD Manager v.6 to resize my partition on a WinXP machine and I have lost some space on the C: drive.

The setup was:
C: drive 24GB
D: drive 56gb

What I did was:
- Reduced in size the D: drive to 20gb, and dragged to increase C: drive the remaining space between the two partitions. Now the D: drive is 20gb, however the C: drive is in a mess, I still only have 2gb of space available, Paragon and System manager report partion as 55GB, however Windows explorer reports it as still 24gb with only 2gb free space.

How do I recover the space I just created? Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

currently using Paragon HD Manager 2010 Pro and i'm curious about the Boot Manager feature that it has.

I currently have Ubuntu 10.10 x64 dual booted with my Windows 7 X64. I installed Windows 7 first, then ubuntu.

When i boot up my computer it uses GRUB which is the loader for Ubuntu, and i can select Windows 7 from this menu.

What i want to know is, will paragon boot manager basically do the same thing for me? I know GRUB is doing this for me, but when i update the kernel in ubuntu it adds un-needed entries at boot which is tacky and ugly and i dont like it and i'm nervous about configuring GRUB =)

I have my machine backed up so if i mess anything up, i'm safe. I figured i'd post my question here to see if i can avoid restoring from backup or maybe get some insight that will blow me away and make me feel stupid. -Fingers Crossed.-

I have a paid for version of Acronis 2011 True Image, a paid for version of Paragon Partition Manager? 11 SE Personal, but only the trial version of the Hard Disk Manager, and it's the 2009 version.

Two questions :-

Will the backups made with the 2009 suite be readable if I buy the upgrade to Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2011 Suite.

Secondly, I have seen on a Win7 video tutorial, that you can do a bare metal backup of the OS using Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2011 Suite, with Winpe 3.0, is this possible on Vista?

Hi
Potentially really bad news here.

I thought I would do a backup boot n other partitions on drive 1 (Win 7 32bit) and used the One Button Copy Disk command on Paragon B&R 10 thinking it would copy to a previous backup. It didnt. It copied and (maybe) overwrote an active partition on drive 2. But maybe not...

When I look in Paragon the drive 2 overwritten just says its a basic hard disk 1 (ATA Toshiba DT01ACA3 SCSI Disk Device) of 3 terra and there is nothing on it. It also does not have a drive letter associated.

When I look on EaseUS Partition Master Pro Edition v9.2.2 I can see it all as Disk 2 with 4 active partitions and an unallocated space of 2TB.

This is where I might get out of jail -
When I installed this 3 terra Toshiba 7200 SATA I soon found that win32 cant handle anything over 2 terra with a MBR and that there is GPT to get all 3 terra usage. Tried that and I couldn't get it to work so I ended up reformatting back to MBR and made a partition of 2 terra (thats important for later on) with unallocated space of about 750Gb.

The little hope I have of getting back my files is this - seems Paragon Backup & Recovery MAY have chosen to make the 4 new partitions - cloned from the disk C/boot is on, to the unallocated space on the three terra - and those 4 partitions amount to 400 Gb. That left an unallocated partition of 2 terra, with no drive letter, no nothing - dead space I cant use. Im taking it to a pro shop for surgery hoping this -

Hey there!
I tried to set up a dualboot of 7 and XP, so I made a new partition from XP (named S: ) and installed 7 there.
It finished installing all right and booted to 7, but when I restarted no boot manager appeared and I could only run XP.
So I decided to follow the steps from Method 2 here
Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP
but I must have screwed something up very badly 'cause I can only access 7 now.
I went into the disk management tool and things have gone weird there: S: drive is now labeled C: (and I can't change it), and my XP drive (that was C: ) is now a logical drive (wtf?) labeled E:
Any suggestions on how to fix this?
Thanks in advance

I have, for about a year now, been using my computer with two partitions; one for software and one for files. The software partition has been screwed up beyond compare, which I didn't think would be such a big deal - just delete and reinstall Windows 7 on a new one, right? The problem is I cannot seem to delete the partition - I just don't know how - and when I try to install Windows 7 I get the error screen shown on the attached image. What should I do?

A:Totally Screwed Up Partition

Can you explain in a little more detail what it is exactly that you want to do? Are you wanting to keep the data partition and put W7 on the old software partition? If that's the case, you should be able to insert your Windows CD and step through the installation. During that process it should ask you where you want to install it and it will list your partitions. Select the desired partition and then you have the option of formatting the partition and subsequently installing W7.

How are you trying to delete the partition?

Good day!

My friend has a problem with his machine. He had Windows 2000 installed, and then proceeded to install XP. After doing so, the partition tables seem to have become corrupt. The partitions appear in knoppix, but aren't accessable. When he goes into qtparted or cfdisk on the knoppix disc, it says the drive's partition tables can't be read. The Windows installer is saying that there are no partitions, but the amount of space that it is saying is available matches the amount of space that was unpartitioned on the drive. However, Knoppix recognizes the partitions. Is there any way the partition tables can be restored without loss of data?

First and foremost before you dissmiss this problem as a 'typical' worm/virus/etc etc PLEASE READ what my problem is and all the measures I took to try to get rid of it that didn't work.

For almost an entire month, whenever I bring up the Task Manager by hitting the 3 button salute on WinXP Pro, when it shows up, the menu bars and tabs at the top portion of the Task Manager is invisible. Like, it's non existent and I can click straight through it when I try to look for it.

I personally find this very alarming because this means there's a peace of malignant something hidden in my OS that's attempting to hide itself from one of those Tabs that shows all the processes that are running in the background.

These are the steps I've taken that have not worked at all. All these are the most latest versions.

1) Norton Antivirus
2) Symantec.com
3) Mcafee.com
4) Adaware
5) The Cleaner

I am completely confuzzled and frustrated because nobody I know has any ideas on how to fix this small yet very irritating problem.

I know for a fact a clean format and reinstall will get rid of it but I have too much important data and not enough time to do this.

Also an interesting fact is that The Cleaner found something called "lstbar" but when I looked it up on the Norton website it's discription does not match the problem I have.

I also do not have that Norton software which affects the task Manager installed in my computer.... Read more

Hey,
About 4 months ago I tried to make a partition on my HD to install XP SP2 on it, while running Vista Business, which I installed on the laptop (it originally had XP), but something screwed up while making the partition and Vista was erased from my laptop and XP was installed on both partitions. When I turn on my laptop a boot screen comes on to choose which partition to boot up. I've always chosen the larger partition, I've never tried booting the other partition, I'm scared it will screw something up. All of my files are on the bigger partition, the one I always use. But I want to know how to delete the other partition so that there is only one partition and I can use the space on the partition I don't use at all. I want to do this without deleting my files if possible.
Thanks for your help.

I was using PartitionMagic to merge two partitions, (which were technically adjacent but one was drive D: and one was drive F: - there was no drive E: at the time.) Drive F: had my XP installation on it, and Drive D: had some files stored on it.

PartitionMagic said it was going to merge the two and name it as Drive E:.

Once it went through the process and said it was successful, I rebooted, and this was where things went awry.

XP would not boot, claiming that the hal.dll file was missing or corrupted. I used my XP disc to get to the recovery console, and through a couple of commands, (can't remember what they were now because I didn't actually think I was going to be doing anything useful), I ended up running a search for Windows installations. It found only one, and asked if I wanted to add it to the boot menu. I did so, named it, etc. and rebooted the computer.

During the boot it asked me which of two Windows installations I wanted to boot. I selected the one that I had just "made", and Windows started up the way it had prior to the PartitionMagic fiasco, aside from PartitionMagic's DriveMapper program coming up and asking me to confirm the changes to references in drive letters. I confirmed, which may or may not have been a mistake.

(By the way if I select the other installation during boot it gives me the hal.dll error again.)

When I went into My Computer I noticed that I was on the F: drive - not the E: drive like I thought it was suppos... Read more

The answer to both - because it is the system partition.

You can make C system if you like.

Very quick with commands, but might be easier for you to use easybvd.

Bootmgr - Move to C:\ with EasyBCD

It is normal for windows (xp ) installer to show drive letters differently.

I'm running XP and I decide to install RedHat on my computer. Using Partition Magic I created a few partitions on my C drive and and installed Boot Magic to be able to select an OS at startup. I then attempted to install RedHat. I screwed it up (forgot to install a boot loader) and figured I'd uninstall it and do it again.

This is where it gets ugly.

Following the RedHat documentation I go into the rescue mode and run PARTED to delete some of the Linux partitions. It's here where I deleted the partition table partition. Didn't mean to, I just saw a small partition and thought it was a mistake.

So now when I try to boot up, it hangs up at "Verifying DMI Pool Data.."

After exploring some options, I decide to rebuilt the partition table with MBRWork.

I put in the following commands, in this order:
Backup 1st Track
Resent MBR to 0
Reset EMBR to 0
Recover MS Partitions
It hangs up at this point Searching for partitions.

So now, when I use parted in the Linux rescue mode, it doesn't recognize any partitions, and when it boots up, it give the following message 'BOOT DISK FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER.'

So am I stuck? Is there any way get this thing going again w/o losing all the data on my C drive? If I reinstall XP, I'll lose everything, right?

Any help will be appreciated.

Up to this point I have used either Acronis or Paragon for my backups, I prefer Paragon over Acronis, mainly because the restore by Paragon is far quicker.

I downloaded Paragon's Advanced Recovery CD. 2009 Build 6730. Put it in my rom and booted ....... looked at a black screen for 10 minutes. Removed it and rebooted, it got stuck at the loading of Vista, then I got another black screen no hard drive movement.

Rebooted again, this time with the regular Paragon bootable CD. It booted into the recovery console.

Now this is where things go from bad to worse. I tried finding my OS, after a lengthy period I received an error disk 2 i/o fault!!! ....... no operating system found.

Now disk 2 is my external hard drive where my backups are kept.

So I rebooted with the CD in, went into the recovery console and clicked on "safe restore", after playing the waiting game I get a message disk 2 i/o fault!!!.

Took out the Paragon CD, put in the Vista one, tried a repair, but there was no OS to repair .

Example: If I choose "Detail" the entire right panel contains just ICONS, no text, no name, no location, NOTHING (see attachments)
"List" produces the file Name but nothing else, no label bar, NO other fields. "Content" gives three flields, Name, Type and Date/size.

I loaded a hard disk formatted as a Windows Primary Disk onto my SATA controller. The BIOS sees the disk. In this case I want to load the new disk as a secondary drive (of course I have booted with a different hard disk). I load the Partition Manager and inside I find that the partition manger does not see the new disk. I am wondering if this has anything to do with the new disk being a Windows 7 primary boot partition as well. I was hoping to get a drive letter mapped to it so I could extract some data from that disk. What should I be doing when this occurs?

Thank you...

A:Partition Manager. Primary Boot Partition as Secondary Drive.

Have you tried Disk Management? Right click computer and select manage, in the left column select disk management. In the lower portion of the window you will see each hard drive with drive letters. If you see one with no drive letter, right click it and select 'change drive letter or path, next screen select add, and pick whatever drive letter you would like from the drop down list. Once it gives it a drive letter, you will be able to see it in explorer. If you have data on the drive you would like to keep, Do Not format it, if Disk Management wants to.

In the Techspot post detailing how to instal Win7 RC in 3 easy steps, http://www.techspot.com/vb/all/windows/t-120472-Dual-Boot-Windows-7-with-XPVista-in-three-easy-steps.html, the partition manager "GPparted" was suggested as a way to divide a partition where XP was installed, as XP OS doesn't have a partition manager that can do this function.

In my own case I had 3 partitions on my PC and had already used Vista partition manager to create a 4th partition for Win7. However, I'd been looking for a good freeware partiton manager for a quite awhile, and downloaded GPparted from the link shown in the post:

http://downloads.sourceforge.net/gparted/gparted-live-0.4.1-2.iso?modtime=1230460364&big_mirror=0

I then burnt the ISO file for GPparted as a bootable CD and ran it on bootup as a trial to create a 5th partition as if i was creating a new partiton on which to load Win7.

It created a new, primary, (unactive), parition OK, but when I re-booted none of my operating systems would boot except Vista. After a lot of failed attempts to rectify the problem, I tried to:

Hey guys,

Just wondering if there was a good partition manager out there that works through vista and would save me having to boot from a third party app.

I just can't get the Disk management to work in Vista, keep getting the error "There is not enough space available on the disk(s) to complete this operation".

Even though there is 68Gig free it wont let me creat a new partition of any size.

Thanks.

Hi TommyK,

Vista Disk Management is good, but it is limited to not being able to work when unmovable files like Virtual Page File, Shadow Copy, System Restore, etc... are not allowing the partition to be created.

Other than doing what you want when reinstalling Vista, you will need to use a 3rd party program like Acronis Partition Expert in the Disk Director Suite. You can try a 15 day trial version here:

hi all
im using easeus partition master pro to shrink the partition on an external hard drive but pretty much as soon as it started over an hour n half ago it stopped at 36%. ive checked in task manager n it says its running but the amount of memory isnt changing. its usually safe leaving data on the drive wen ive resized a partition before using easeus.

any help is much apreciated PLz. my new backups from a clean install are on it.

EDIT: i must b havin a lucky day or somethin. after reading that i would have to try n recover the partition i cancelled the resize n was about to get ready to start recovery. BUT to my suprise EASeus had done absolutely nothing and everything was the same as b4 i started. BUZZIN!

IMO, the best free software to do the recovery from a RAW disk is Test Disk. TestDisk - CGSecurity

It can be a little daunting for the first time user, and so take your time to read through all the documentation.

First use PhotoRec in it - which does not write anything to the drive in question - and try to recover the files.

Then you can use TestDisk and try to rewrite the partition. Some people have reported that even after restoring the partition with TestDisk, the drive remained RAW but they were able to recover most files using the option to copy.

Whether PhotoRec or TestDisk, it is going to take a lot of time to recover the files. Copy them to another external drive with adequate capacity.

You may find some help here to understand the usage.

Hi there - installed the RC when it came out, and today I used the free version of EASEUS to add one partition. After the partition change, it rebooted and I got an error that said Windows detected some kind of problem (like a moron I didn't write the error # down) and that I needed to repair using the installation disk.

So I stuck in the 7 DVD and clicked on repair, which was the recommended option. Only other option was to start normally. After a few seconds of scanning it restarted, and I got the same error message, and again, the option to repair or to start normally. This time I started normally and 7 loaded fine. New partition was there and it seems to be working ok.

On the EASEUS forums, they said it should be compatible with 7. But they're not testing with the beta, and I guess the RC but I didn't read that.

Am I asking for trouble if I don't clean install 7 again, and just keep using the new partition?

I am using the newest edition of Easeus Partition Manager Home/Free edition and I am unable to add any space to the "F:\" partition. I have been able to change all of the others around just fine, but I cannot move the unallocated space into the F partition or even move F over to the left.

Windows reboots and goes into the manager as normal before the Windows boot and I always get a message that there is an error on the disk and Easeus cannot continue. And then it just cancels the operation.

I have some knowledge in the program, but I haven't the slightest why it is claiming I have an error, or what that error could be. If anyone knows of a way to fix this, I would appreciate it.

We do not recommend Easeus for Win7 as we hear regularly of total data loss on resizing operations.

I cannot load windows I can only boot from diskette. even after running set up it says No Operating System. so is there a program I can download and save on a diskette that will allow me to manage my partitions?

through set up I was able to see the files and partitions still alive on the drive through DOS prompt (recovery console)

Bios is setup with right order of HardDrive first. Tried Boot.exe too.

Is there a command prompt to delete the Recovery Manager partition? I can't get to my desktop.

A:How to delete Recovery Manager partition?

Why would you want to delete your Recovery Manager partition? It doesn't sound like the reinstall was successful, if your computer continues to boot into recovery mode. Did you use a recovery disk in this process and later remove it? Try booting up in safe mode. If that doesn't work, then I suspect your recovery did not complete successfully.

Also, you may want to try booting from USB and then accessing the hard drive to see if the integrity is OK.

I have a friend who has Windows installed on a 4Gig partition on a 240Gig hard drive. He has FAT32 with the 4Gig Windows installed on part of the drive and the rest of the 240Gig is NTFS for all the rest of his files. He cleans out the 4Gig one too often because it gets overcrowded and he wants to give more space to that FAT32 4Gig partition. I know that partition magic would be able to do what he wants, but I was wondering if there was a good free partition manager program that could do what he wanted. If anyone knows of that program please let me know

Hi everyone:)
I am trying to find out a way by which I can reclaim the space allocated for linux on my system - just want to know how to do it, as I think I will soon want to remove Linux. One page a I visited had a section on deleting the linux partitions due to fdisk not being able to detect linux partition and hence advocated the use of Ranish partition manager. It says :Format a floppy (format /s) and unzip the contents of the partvvv.zip file (where vvv is the version you have downloaded) to this floppy and you are ready to begin. The trouble is I dont have a floppy drive in my puter, so is there a way to make a bootable cd with the Ranish on it? Please do help me out.(Sorry for being such a pest-the site's search doesn't work well btw).Oh heck now I cant subscribe to my thread either ughhh :(

I also tried my Nero Express's 'create a bootable data disk' option and doing that just brings up the window to add files and I dunno what files I am supposed to add. Should I just add all the files on my original XP cd? Please do help me. Oh and try to keep it simple for poor me's sake :)

Partition Wizard is one that we use frequently without any problems.

Free Partition Magic alternative. Free Partition Manager Software for Windows 7/VISTA/XP/2000 and Windows Server 2003/2008/2000.

Note: You need to download the ISO and burn it to a blank disc, and then boot into it and carry out your re-partitioning from there. If you just download the application and run it from your hard drive, you are likely to experience problems.

Hello all,

When I open up disk manager I see two entries each for c:,d:,e:,f: and g: partitions.
I have an efi system with a GPT disk. Win7, Ubuntu and CentOS6 all installed in various partitions. There are a number of other partitions but only those with drive letters are duplicated. But only one instance has the filesystem type.

I have a second disk and a DVD and both these are okay/normal/displayed once.

The disk 0 schematic looks normal. Clicking on the partitions grey-highlights the entry with the filesystem types.

If I right-click on the either of the duplicated Volumes I just get a "help" otion where as my 2nd disk as the full range of actions.

I think I may know what has caused this but having read the internet twice I've not been able to find any clue on how to go about fixing it.

My idea was to copy/clone the C: soon after installation and have one "save" copy and another "game" copy. Dual boot to "w7_game" for clean OS without bloat.

I fiddled with bcdedit (easyBCD does NOT work with GPT and it tool a lot of hacking to fix the mess it left) and created a dual boot set-up but when I boot from w7_game (G it recognised it was using that box (windows flag against the drive when exploring the "Computer") but it was picked up the user account from c:
Not tried anything else on this topic but since then I spotted the dupicates.
