Windows 7: gparted trouble I think

gparted trouble I think

Hi,
I used gparted to add partitions E: (extended) and F: logical.
Drive c: is origional and holds winxp
drive e: is copy of c:
drive f: holds win7

The problem is I can see files in an ksh window that windows does not see.
using "ls -lst" these files are displayed as:
0 drwxrwxrwx 1 <unavail> <unavail> 0 Jul 13 2009 PerfLog

What does <unavail> mean?

Did I make the partitions incorrectly?

or did I load win7 incorrectly?

I'm confused by what I see.

Thanks,
Keith

Hi,
I've learned that I can not use linux partitions with windows.
Where do I go from here?

These partitions and the boot configuration appear to be correct. Try running a Disk Check.

What files exactly are you not able to see and on which partition?

Have you installed Linux on the system or are you only concerned that using Linux disk to format has caused problems. It appears that it has created and formatted the partitions correctly.

You have Win7 installed on a Logical partition which cannot itself boot an OS, but that is OK in this case because it is XP which is still Dual Booting both OS's as signified by the System Active flags. If you'd want to get rid of XP you'll need to convert the Logical partitions to Primary first in order to Move Bootmgr to C:\ with EasyBCD - Windows 7 Forums.

like this one:
0 drwxrwxrwx 1 <unavail> <unavail> 0 Jul 13 2009 PerfLog

mkstools ls -lst

windows does not show this file as being in F:

Can you take a screenshot so we can see if any recognizable files are there? The others are so crpytic they might be Linux formatting tools.

Try also placing some files there to see if they will copy into the partition and be seen from another.

I want xp. I only upgraded cause support goes away in April. I don't have linux partition per say other than using gparted which I was lead to believe that it made all 3 drives linux based. MKS toolkit runs on dos/win got all the standard unix tools.
It gets loaded from windows or dos OS.
Yes this makes sense cause opening ksh tool even though performed in F: part will revert back to C: the origional drive. It seems like something is incorrect cause there are several files that are not seen. I don't really have good idea how serious this is cause I'm just starting to explore what is there. Gag is used to select either win7 or xp and seemes to do both ok except for the files not seen in win7. I've not looked into xp much since I re-partitioned but will.
There were no errors/problems with the f: part reported. I needed to restart so it took some time.
