"Worth nothing"on by alexois
Pros Not found any
Cons You loose data
Summary Made the big mistake to buy this product... no wonder the evaluation copy does not do anything... so you cannot see how buggy the product is.
Shortly, first use of the product was to merge 2 partitions... some error came up and I lost one partition, I lost the data in that partition.
Second use... to merge the unused space on the disk. Guess what? Another error. Luckily, I had backed up my disk.
So, you want to re-arrange your partitions? Copy all the data on some other drive, delete all partitions, create new ones, then move the data back. But you do not need PartitionMagic to do this, right?

Pros works with basic disks
Cons does not work with dynamic disks
Summary I once liked Norton Products but am now going to look elsewhere. They don't tell you that Partition Magic only works with basic drives so if yours is a dynamic drive it won't work. I found out when I finally contacted customer service - the reply was it dosen't work with dynamic drives a - and there was no solution. I don't understand why they don't make it clear before you buy the product.
Pros I wasn't much towards installing this software after reading all the reviews of its performance on Windows XP. But, since my computer performance was bad, I went ahead and installed it. The actual partitioning of the disks took less than half an hour, inc
Summary had used system commander with some problems. PM8 can load and launch from a Win 2k OS,create,resze partitions on another HDD,so the ability to work with 2000,and probably XP is there. Using FAT32 in Multi-Boot systems makes sense to me,so it does what I need from it
Summary I installed boot magic in XP and it couldn't find my win98 hd. Then when booting it wouldn't boot at all. Then when I unplugged the XP hd it couldn't start anything.
