A recent thread pointed to the following partitioning software, PartitionManager 2005, as being free;

I'm about to help someone whose buying a laptop and I intend to use this... if it works on vista.
Can anyone confirm for me that it does? The indicated platforms don't inclde vista, but maybe that's because vista wasn't about when it was made available for download?

Also, while on the subject, does Office 2000 work on Vista?

Thanks in advance,

Why do you want to partition?

office 2000 is supposed to work, but your FREE download is a TIME LIMIT TRIAL only...

I very much doubt it. In fact it may only create an expensive ornament. My Vista Inside Out book warns very strongly about using this kind of software if it predates Vista.

to keep OS and data seperate, which makes back up of OS easier.

It's not time limited... see the note near the bottom of the page.

Thanks for the warning from your book. Does it give anything specific, or is it generic?

I assume vista is , (normally), installed onto a NTFS partition. Can someone confirm if that is so? If so I can boot from a bootable partitioning CD and work from that?
