I have a system with Pop!_OS and Windows 10 dual booted When I was on Pop!_OS I wanted to shrink the C: drive (currently it is 400 GB) to make it about 250 GB and give the remaining to Linux. When I was doing it with gparted it showed me a error and this was the report

GParted 1.0.0

NTFS is inconsistent. Run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot it TWICE!
The usage of the /f parameter is very IMPORTANT! No modification was
and will be made to NTFS by this software until it gets repaired.

Can someone tell me why it happened and how to fix it? And do I need to run the command it says in the bottom third line? Please help. Thanks.

The end of the disk check reports that,

NTFS is inconsistent. Run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot it TWICE!
The usage of the /f parameter is very IMPORTANT! No modification was
and will be made to NTFS by this software until it gets repaired.

Until you do this you won't be able to resize the partition.

  • I have the same problem, and have done the chkdsk thing several times. Almost every time I boot this thing it does a disk repair. Sometimes it doesn't need to do it for a boot or two, but will start doing it again after a few boots. Is VirtualBox virtual machine. I'd like to make the virtual drive bigger as I'm out of space, but cannot copy or do anything with this thing due to the cluster issues. How do you find what files are affected, can we delete them if not needed to help? Is there any other tool to try as chkdsk does nto seem successful? – billt Apr 20 at 19:51
