Space conflict between two partitions

#1 Postby spv82 » 18 Jul 2012, 16:57

Hello,
sorry for my English.
Could you help me with the issue. I have 500 GB HDD with one primary partition and one extended with two logical. Windows disk management find two strange partitions:
DISKPART> list partition

Раздел ### Тип Размер Смещение
------------- ---------------- ------- -------
Раздел 1 Основной 30 GB 32 KB Primary
Раздел 2 Расширенный 799 GB 30 GB Extended
Раздел 3 Логический 60 GB 30 GB Logical
Раздел 4 Логический 1190 GB 1687 GB Logical
Раздел 5 Основной 376 GB 90 GB Primary

And TestDisk under Win XP

Code: Select all

I would like to remove these strange partitions. Can TestDisk help with it? Should I choose "Write" action?

Many thanks in advance.

1 * HPFS - NTFS 0 1 1 3915 254 63 62910477 [SYSXP]
2 E extended LBA 3916 0 1 60800 254 63 913857525

This partition structur looks almost ok.
Except your MMedia-partition, the value 5 doesn't match.
If you were able to list your data, you can use Write to egister your partitions into your partition table.
The extended partition as a container for logical partitions is normal.
Extended partitions only contain logical partitions/volumes and no data.
That's why, if confirm with enter, TestDisk generates that extended partition automatically.
Also infos about logical partitions;
http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/Partitio ... nd_logical

Your partition Sys=4E should be gone, because you didn't register it into your partition tbale.
After restart, that partition is not available anymore.
