Did you md5's of all files before and after? Of course this is still the
"worked a couple of times for me on my hardware" category which isn't too
solid in general.

The way the data are moved around, updated is important. Doing the FAT 
way is the safest. My ntfsresize works similarly to ext3. Power outage 
can cause data loss if the lower layers rearranged data to be written.
There is a warning about this, asking users approval, right before
starting heavy modifications.

  WARNING: Every sanity check passed and only the dangerous operations left.
  Make sure that important data has been backed up! Power outage or computer
  crash may result major data loss!
