Resize error #47

Hi,

I have four data partitions on a drive in my PC. All my OSs are on
another drive. I have been resizing and moving my partitions and all
went well until the last stage which is resizing one of the last
partitions. I cannot resize it at all, error #47 pops up. I have all
the data safe so I could vape the partition and create another one,
but where is the fun in that?

I loaded my main partition and the drive was not displaying properly
in explorer - as a full drive, it should have had a red bar going all
the way to the right. I ran chkdsk on the drive and it displayed
properly and I found I could then resize the partition.

This episode begs the question about how effective the BIBM "checking
for errors" process is. It is clearly not as effective as chkdsk and I
would expect it to be just as good as there is no real point in having
it. I also recall that one is often advised to use chkdsk to fix
errors. So can the BIBM error checking be significantly improved?

the check is to ensure the resize won't cause data loss, it's not there to
fix anything, it will tell you to use chkdsk /f to fix any problems.

Hi,

Got it.

Out of interest, what does the error #47 signify?

What is a bitmap file in this context? I have only ever heard that
term being used when talking about graphics files.

TIA.
