Hi. I have part.magic (now owned by norton) for 3 years(version 8)_. I don't really like it specially when I have tried to install another O.S. so more than a year ago I heard about Acronis (it looks allow to install O.S.) on external drives. I'd like to know if this program is better than P.Magic. Also P.magic is still in version 8. ??

There are two Acronis main programs, One is Acronis True Imahe for creating Images and backups, and Acronis Disc Director Suit 10

I think you have used P.Magic as well. What do you think wich one is better?. I needed mostly to make paRTITIONS AND INSTALL ANOTHER O.S.

It's a long time ago if I use PM, but Acronic works very well

Like woodchip I have not used PM for a few years but I do remember not really liking it much. I have just used Acronis Disc Director Suit to partition and install a second OS and found it easy and straightforward so my vote would go to Acronis Disc Director Suit.

I will try to get Acronis and hope to get best luck than P. magic.
