System is borked after resizing btrfs partition

I also thought of that but the thing is I did btrfs check--repair as the first as said by the dev..
I later got to the thought of all the above btrfs rescue zero-log etc

Indeed I was able to chroot right after resizing but the thought of UUID didn't strike me..

Well, then, strike up the band and tell us--do UUIDs match?

I chrooted and my UUID in the fstab and gnome disk utility(live usb) are same..

Actually on gnome disk utility the size of the partition is 92 gigs and on other places its 85 gigs, I used kde partition manager and system worked for a bit then as said above after 3-4 boots in 5 hours system borked.
Edit: Kde used GiB and gnome uses GB, i didnt use gnome at all, I used Kde partition manager only.

@SGS @jonathon @c00ter @Grimy1928 @BluishHumility When I chrooted I went into my home dir and there were some of my files (very less but each folder had some), can I run
btrfs rescue chunk-recover ?

Did you disable quick startup in the Windows power management menu?

Power & Sleep -> Additional Power Settings -> Choose what the power buttons do -> Change settings that are currently unavailable -> uncheck "Turn on fast startup"

yes i've done that.

Please don't mass-tag people. If they are interested they're already following the thread and will see any new posts.


I'm sorry all, just a popping question..

Can the data be recovered by any data rescue tool?

Rhetorical: Can you use a search engine?

I searched most of them uses raid which I don't have..
I've got only 2 btrfsque and btrfs rescue chunk-recover


Also, resizing any file system (even on Windows) is inherently dangerous. Backing up your system before any resize operation is always best practice.


Unfortunately I didn't... It was a mess. Didn't have an external storage and just bought one after the incident
And i just didn't back it up into my existing internal storage from live usb before btrfs check--repair
