>>52635971 >BUT DOES IT WORK Don't fix stuff that ain't broke, nigga. From what i see there is a partition inside another partition. Gparted would say "overlapping partitions". I fixed it by copying all stuff i want to keep to external media, recreate the partition table, and create new partitions on which you are going to put your backup.
You're dumb fuck enough not to have backups, don't be dumb fuck enough to restore to the same drive. Do it to a different drive. Go and take evening classes, get a comfy job, buy a second hard drive; liberate one from your local police department or just put your shit on a shelf until you win the lottery.
Restore to the same drive and know this: even Reddit will cast you out, and you'll only be welcome at AOL
>>52636506 As far as i know, no. Of course you can defrag and optimize the drive and cross your fingers that the data is not in the blocks that you're editing.
the safest way to fix without formatting would be to use an external drive (or drive in a virtual machine) that can hold both partitions and copy each partition and place them after each other. you can then individually shrink and copy them back. if there is any data overlap this is useless, i wouldn't do the above method on my own drive, i'd rather reinstall.
