Nick - I was reading through this and did it via the terminal and also there is a way to do the same operation using a gparted LIVE CD- in both cases it came back "clean" so I'm going to boot back over there now and see how it goes!Also - I found out ,you cannot perform this operation on a mounted partition- has to be done via Gparted LIVE CD or from another Linux partition- I.E. not the partition you are working on!
