Partition Magic

Does anyone have any experience with this program? I just realized I don't have a floppy disk drive in my computer, and the program urged me to make "rescue" diskettes, but am I going to even need them?

Has anyone had to use the diskettes?

Re: Partition Magic

I've used it and always skipped the rescue discs as well. They're unnecessary in my opinion.

Re: Partition Magic

See if you can burn a rescue CD. If your system becomes unbootable for some reason (it happens), I'd imagine the rescure disk is what you need to be able to recover any/all partitions you may have. I never used the program, but it makes sense to me that that is what its for - otherwise, why would they suggest you make them?

It may be true that most people never need it, but IF you do, you'll be glad you have one

Well, It says I can merge partitions. I was thinking of splitting the drive I don't use, and then merging that partiton with the drive I use for storage and see what happens, but I won't do that unless I have the rescue diskettes.

Do you mean that Partition Magic will allow you to merge a partition from one HD with a partition from another HD?

Re: Partition Magic

No, Partition Magic only merges logical partitions on the same physical drive.

Re: Partition Magic

That's what I thought. Thanks. Like I said, I've never used it and thought that maybe something new was possible.

So that means, If I split a partition on [for example] the "C" drive into A and B, I could only merge partitions A and B back together, and not merge partition B with my storage drive?

Like this:

A + B = good

A or B + storage = bad
