hi.. I had a ntfs partition occupying all my 160GB hd
I first used ntfsresize to resize it to 100GB and then used fdisk to resize the partition and to create another partition with the rest of the space
but I think it was after I deleted and created the new partition, that neither mount or ntfsresize (I tryied to resize it again) recognize the resized ntfs (100GB) anymore

my commands was like:

sudo ntfsresize --size 100GB /dev/sda1
sudo fdisk /dev/sda
# deleted the partition
# created one partition to like 110GB, set active and fs type 7 (HPFS/NTFS)
# created another partition with the rest of the space, fs type 7 too
w -- to apply the changes to the partition table

then I tryed

sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /media/win

and I got an error:
NTFS signature is missing.
Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': Invalid argument
The device '/dev/sda1' doesn't have a valid NTFS.

what can I do to recover my ntfs partition?
