Can Partition Magic 7.0 be used to partition a 120 GB hard drive?

  Vole 17:11 16 Feb 2004

Yes, I should think so. I've used PM (7 I think,
I don't have access to my machine at the moment)
to partition a 160GB RAID 0 stripe.

This presupposes your motherboard and BIOS etc. are happy with large disks.

The motherboard and BIOS will be OK with large disks ;-)

I thought I read somewhere about PM 7.0 could be used to partition drives up to 80 GB??

from the box PM7.0 comes in > "NEW! Partition hard drives as large as 80GB"

Partition Magic 7.0

Today computer hard drives are huge and handling all that real estate takes some skill and planning. Over the lifetime of your hard drive your needs and design of your hard drive layout may change. Partition Magic makes that hard and time consuming task an easy and painless task.

New features are merging NTFS partitions, support for up to 80 GB drive, integration with Windows Defragmenter and supports external USB drives. Some limitations are that it is not designed to perform on removable media and it won't work on Windows 2000 dynamic drives.

Just checked on my other PC which has PM7 and a 120gb HDD and it works fine - it sees and operates on the whole of the drive.

OK thanks for your help folks :-)

Well, I didn't need PM7 in the end, I just partitioned through windows setup
