I have a factory buildt Fujitsu Siemens PC with a 250 gig harddrive, XP already installed. I want to partition the drive, one for XP(20 gigs) and one for Storage (the rest).
I DL'ed Partition Magic and tell it to Create New Partition. It then shows me how the drives will look after it's done, but when I click "Apply" nothing happens and the drive is still one instead of two.
What am I doing wrong? I have not prepared the harddrive otherwise since I thought that PM would know what to do. Do I need to format the harddrive before partitioning it, and would that not delete everything on the drive?
As I understand it, the trial version is actually a "demo" which goes through the process up to the point where the change has to be made, then you cannot implement the change without paying for the software.
Partition Magic is software which many users would only need to use once and therefore, if the trial version implemented the changes, very few would actually buy it. ;)
