Can't resize partitions - Error #47

Postby Damion888 » Mon Sep 14, 2015 12:42 pm

Hi,

250GB SSD with BIBM installed with it's default settings.
Using the normal MBR which only supports 4 primaries.

1. BIBM is in it's 8MB partition at the start of the drive.
2. I've installed Win7x64, updated it, shrunk it down and moved it to the back of the drive for a "backup".
3. I've installed Win10x64, updated it, shrunk it down and moved it to the back of the drive for a "backup".
4. Copied the Win7 to right next to the BIBM partition at the front of the drive and then expanded the copy to 100GB.
5. Copied the Win10 to next to that and DOH! Oh, yeh, forgot I've got the old NT/MS limitation. Shoot!
6. Deleted my Win7x64 shrunk down "backup".
7. Moved the Win10x64 "backup" to the end of the drive.
8. Copied Win10 to right next to the 100GB Win7.
9. Tried expanding the Win10 copy, there are 124347MiB free space ( Error: Error #47 has occurred during the resize process!)

Zoinks! What is the problem!?!? :)

BING/BIBM has never failed me in almost 10 years...don't fail me now, Baby!

Then, I thought, hmm, maybe it's a Windows Filesystem Error!?! I started up the Win10 "backup". Ran chkdsk c: /r...rebooted, et voila! ¡Todo bien!

Everything's working again!

One last clarification. I had moved the only remaining Windows10 partition forward, hoping to be able to resize it, even if it had to mean losing my "backup". After moving it, it would get that error #47 also.

It is the partition I ran chkdsk on, and was then able to resize, slide, whatever. So, I'm doing it all over again to get it the way I want it with 4 paritions:

BIBM
Windows 7 x64
Windows 10 x64
Win10x64 backup

BTW, Win10 only takes up around 15GB after installed. Win7 takes up near 30GB...even after gutting the Windows Updates download folder.

Cheers.

Just so I'm clear, you ran chkdsk /f (/r in this case) on the partition and
now it resizes correctly. Correct?

chkdsk /f is the correct way to fix those types of errors.

Run Disk Cleanup on each OS before backing up. That is the 'correct'
way to clean up windows update remnants - you will free up many Gb if
you do so. There is no Windows Updates download folder as such in win
7 AIUI, much of the stuff end up in \windows\winsxs.

You may find that there is an extra option in win 10 as there was in
win 8 to do that (called system files IIRC).

I have just come across a way to do a clean install of win 10 without
having to upgrade a win 7 or 8 install first. I'll be checking that
out soon before installing Win 10.
