Error 117 when resizing Linux partition using Norton Partition Magic 8.0

I used Norton Partition Magic 8.0 to partition my hard drive into three and also to install Linux after which everything was running smoothly. I however found the Linux partition to be too large. I decided to apply the same software i.e. Norton Partition Magic 8.0, to reduce the size of the Linux partition to the desirable size. Attempts to open Norton Partition Magic 8.0 produced an error message that indicated that there was something wrong with the partition and asked that I click on yes to fix the problem with my Norton Partition Magic 8.0. Other similar error messages popped up and I clicked yes.  Then the following error message appeared: Init failed: Error 117. Partition's drive letter cannot be identified. Please help me fix this without having to reinstall Windows.

The possible cause of the problem is that you not accessing the file system NTFS or Fat32, or even DOS but instead you are accessing the Partition. To be able to create a partition using that application, you are required to access a partition. And therefore you will need to try creating a bootable Partition Magic disc which should be able to help you in future as well, and to create it you will need to license the application too.

In case there is a problem with the partition that causing that problem, then you can be able to repair  it using the bootable Partition Magic Graphical User Interface, which is basically within the Partition Magic program.
