Partition mess and 3TB turns to 5TB

#1 Post by PIXIP » 01 Feb 2016, 20:16

Hello. first post, don't know where to start.
Background: just changed 3TB to GPT, and then tried to merge the two partitions and the unallocated one to one big partition.

log to follow, but anyway analyzing was done as "Intel-PC" partition and all the log contains a lot of references to FAT16/32 and 5TB so i got totally confused...
any ideas?

Done. it is recognized (correctly i guess) as GPT.
Quick search finds a single MS data partition
a Deeper Search takes two and a half days (currently at 5%)... and finds many partitions. by the way i had to restart this long long process twice already because of some bug, when i maximize the window all the text disappears...

the log as of now, it is incomplete because it is very long. the full log is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/l8ot13il4vm76 ... k.log?dl=0
