Partition Magic + Win7 a no go...any alternatives?
Oke, as the title says, Partition Magic doesn't work for me on Windows 7. Tried several compatibility modes but it just wont start
What im trying to do here is to make my C partition 50gb larger. Always worked fine on older OS's with partition magic.
Also tried the diskmanager thingie of Windows 7, also no success. The idea was to remove the 50gb from my D partition (C+D are on disk of course) and make the C one a bit bigger.
Any one got any good suggestions to solve this problem? Would be very thankfull
i can make the D partition smaller, but for some reason i can't move that free space to the C partition. it ends up after the D partition. so can only put it back to D or create a new partition from it, what i dont want ofcourse :P
Partition magic always worked perfect, always solved this problem, but since its not working on win7 for me, i donnow how to solve this...

Yes, you definitively need a boot disc to change your C: in this case. And a simple partitioning tool won't work either, because the data at the start of D: needs to be moved.
My suggestion would be Acronis True Image. Costs about 25€ in the shop and comes with a boot cd.
(Hint: As you don't need to install Acronis, you could just "get a copy" of the disc)
Why do something simple, when there is a complicated way?
as we know the Norton purchase the Partition Magic from PowerQuest, then they did not upgrade it anymore, therefore it could not work on Win 7, however there are a lot of magic alternatives which is powerful than Partition Magic, such as Partition Assistant, Disk Director, GParted and etc. All of them could work well on Windows 7. You could find them from CNET.Hope it could help you and others
