Are you running Norton antivirus?

yes

The support article suggests deleting the navsys.dat file before partitioning.

Is it a hidden file? Try the following to unhide all files:

In any folder that contains files. Click on the tools menu and select folder options.
Then click on the view tab.
Locate where it lists Hidden files and folders and select Show hidden files and folders.
Click OK.
