Partition Assistant Standard - extending partition failed

Hello everyone,

today I used the free version of the partition assistant to extend the Windows partition C: with non-allocated space on the hard drive. Because there was a recovery partition located between C: and the non-allocated partition, the first operation was to move the recovery partition to the end of the non-allocated space. Operation two was to extend partition C.

However, afterwards Windows has not been able to boot anymore. I got a blue screen and error code 0xc0000225. Starting windows recovery/repair from a Windows boot medium was not working either.

When booting from USB, I also used the command prompt and the mini-explorer/notepad to check the hard drive and potentially save files. However, while C: exhibits the correct size it was supposed to after the extension, all folders are empty.

I appreciate, if anyone has an advide in that matter. It looks like all the data files are lost, even though the flders are there. I have no idea what went wrong during the process. I would be glad to at least recover the data and do a fresh install afterwards.

    And, did you boot from the WinPE USB of AOMEI Partition Assistnat? If yes, please also take a photo of Partition Assistant so that we check the status of your disk.
    In addition, did you move the recovery partition and resize C: drive via Resize/Move Partition feature, and then apply the two operations together?
