Aside from the usual hard drive utility programs, I'm looking for some sort of bootable CD I can resize WinXp and Fat32 partitions. I often get to work on other peoples computers and need to resize partitions, but don't want to install any software. Something Linux would be nice, but the bootable diskette/CD would be preferred. Any suggestions?
Thats a good Idea, but would require that I actually BUY Partition Magic. I have an old copy of 5 with the boot diskettes for support of NTFS on Windows 2000, but it doesn't work right with WinXP NTFS - Darn Micro$oft, changing the file structure all the time.
how else did you want to "get" the PM that will work with XP? I don't use PM personally, it takes very very much of the time to play with loaded partitions, I just save my stuff, repartition the way I want, install windows, copy stuff back to whatever I want. Done in no time, no risk to looze any files with PM, and jee, so much easier.
..this is very useful and helpful place for information...
Here's a link I picked up recently for a free partition manager. Haven't yet checked it out. But you might wanna look at it. I was under the impression it was like Partition Magic, only free. But again, I haven't checked it out yet (I'm a tax cpa, so I'll get to it soon. Whew 4/15 almost over!)
