System commander problem

  Jollyjohn 19:17 23 Dec 2007


I resized a large partition and after an hour the computer appeared to have frozen so I hit reset. I then got the message Partitioning interrupted - boot from utilities disc - which I did. I cannot get the resize process to continue and the partition is now marked as other / unformatted. Does any one know how I can recover this partition without loosing the data on it?

what an excellent little utility. The recovery options included a chance to copy folders off the bad partition. This proved unecessary but I wasnt taking any chances.
