|Partition Magic is not very Linux friendly. It seems particularly unhappy with ubuntu, of which Linux Mint is a popular variant.|
After installing Linux Mint, in place of an old Mandriva install, Partition Magic 7 -- supposedly Linux filesystem compliant -- reports error 114. Oops, error 114 is not even defined in at least one PM manual. The entire drive is labeled BAD, even though it runs fine; no partitions are displayed. This seems to be a problem with an extended partition. I think it is a problem with certain Linux partitions and Partition Magic.
My solution was to delete a tiny old swap partition, using a free Easeus partition manager. (Another user said they deleted their last Linux-created partition, but this /swap was an older Linux partition in my setup.) Now PM finds error 116, again a partition boundary error. It has several 116's, but unlike error 114, it can fix them.
Finally my partitions are back in order, showing the small unallocated space and all the partitions -- NTFS, FAT32 and ext2 -- in their proper places.
From a search online, it appears that all Partition Magic error 114's are from those who dual-boot Linux and Windows. One guy commented he was using Linux to repair his drive, as if Linux had nothing to do with the error.
