Just info. really, I've had reason to partition my C: drive this weekend. In the past I've reinstalled Windows after using fdisc to split the disc, this time I didn't really want to bother.
So, I got myself a copy of Partition Magic 8.0, now, this utility gets a right bad press in some areas in some areas of the web, so I approached it with some caution.
However this is one easy app. to use, completely graphical representation of what you are about to do to the disc, you can tweak the settings to yur hearts content, and then commit, a reboot, all done! Fantastic!
Any Forumites who need who need to do the same sort of thing, have a close look at PM.
One more plus it comes with boot magic and a backup app, good stuff.
Used it since last yr and have found it to be excellent software that has worked flawlessly each time I have used it.
The only thing I'd say for the uninitiated is that the impression can be given that everything happens in Windows when for the most part the real work after you've confirmed what you want to do in Windows happens in DOS (which can take some time).
