Wow! Partition tool

Resizing my partition after imaging....the gparted disk didn't work.

I found EASEUS (who I also found for recovering pictures from a dead
drive...worked great too!).

The repartition ran from Windows, occurred in a split second and was free!

Re: Wow! Partition tool

Does it work with CP/M?

Re: Wow! Partition tool

I recently had to repartition several Windows 2003 servers on VMWare and
using Knoppix and Qparted worked like a dream, although one server which
I had repartitioned in the past with Qparted did not work and I did
have to use a Gparted iso.

"Free for home users only"

You do disk imaging on your home machine?

Re: Wow! Partition tool

Well, yeah! I had some free laptops there but they only came with 40 and 80
gb hard drives. So I swapped them with larger drives by imaging, then the
partitions were only 40 or 80. So, I had to grow them.

The "pro" version still looks cheap, and they kind of imply that if you have
64 bit or some other needs you should go to pro, but it seems like the home
version will work in a jam.

It also does these on the fly so no reboot necessary, even for server
version.

I'll continue to use a bootable GPartEd disc.

Free in all senses of the word, regardless of use.

Yeah, but it didn't work on my Sony.
