Windows 7: Partition Wizard doesn't recognize

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate (x64)
Partition Wizard doesn't recognize

Hi all,

I restored a full disk backup of my system (drive C, D, X) using Paragon. Everything is working fine, but Partition Wizard seems to fail at recognizing my extended logical partition.

I deleted the 2 partitions, recreated them in Partition Wizard and then restored the data to those partitions. Everything was fine again, but after one reboot, I'm back stuck at the same problem.

As you can see, Windows does recognize those partitions, as I can access them freely..

Anyone knows what's causing this?

I think this won't solve anything because the 'problem' only occurs after restoring a Paragon image.

Disk Manager Doesn't Recognize C:OS Partition
