FML (Part 3)

Given how close I’ve been to done, this really is annoying. I found a free application (AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard) that claimed to convert non-system disks from MBR to GPT without data loss, so I gave it a go… It converted the disk to GPT ok, then wiped the partition rather than expanding it to fill the disk. (Lovely app otherwise, don’t tar it just for this one fuck-up… If your non-system disk really is non-system [mine is a bit Frankenstein pseudo-system disk] and you need to convert it from MBR to GPT, give it a go.)

Thank Bob I uploaded S4E012 yesterday rather than waiting until today, and took a “final” incremental backup for safety; that’s recovering as I type this (Acronis is saying 6 or 9 hours, so 12 maybe…)
