Tried to make an additional NTFS partition today using Windows XP's disk management console and met with an unfortunate result.
Not only was there a failure to create a new partition, but information in the MBR listing an existing Linux swap partition seems to have been altered.
Started with an extended partition containing two logical partitions (one was ext3 or ext4, and the other was the swap partition) separated by a fair bit of space. Tried to create a logical NTFS partition between the two partitions, but received an error (sorry, it wasn't in English). After dismissing the dialog box, disk management console displayed a layout for the disk that no longer showed the swap partition.
Got the swap partition back via TestDisk (via Parted Magic) and the UUID of the partition seemed intact.
Wondering if it was a fluke, I repeated the steps and ended up with the same result
Any one else experienced a similar situation?
