On Ubuntu / Linux, after running ntfsresize, must you run fdisk? Instead, can you run GParted to resize the partition?

GParted cannot shrink the partition since it says there are 5 bad sectors that are hardware related. (Scan disk on Windows XP can't fix them).

If your hard drive is developing bad sectors, it's on its way to total failure. Your best bet is to buy a new one, transfer your data, and dispose of it. Hard drives are amazingly cheap now--I bought a terabyte drive for $89!
