I am going to be partitioning a 200G HD and was advised by a friend to use Partition Magic. Having looked through the posts on this site regarding this it has become apparent to me that WinXP can actually do this. Can anyone explain to me what the pros and cons of using PM are......would it not be easier to just do this through XP?
The 200G HD in question is almost empty and on a brand new PC. Would it be safe to carry out the initial partitioning with the WinXP disk management tool and use PM if any resizing etc had to be done in the future?
