    what is a good (possibly free) app to use to partition or resize a hard drive? i have partition magic, but that doesn't seem to want to do squat to my laptop's hard drive.

    Xie: don't know if it is different or not. maybe data is handled differently or somethin. beats me.

    Fishboy:......... i'm not an idiot. If my stoopid sig was workin you would notice that. lol. A+ Certified. on a side note, Partition Magic would say i needed to reboot in order to perform the scheduled tasks, and when it rebooted, it gave the whole message saying that it was scheduled to perform tasks and to press a key to abort. then right after that it said Partition Magic has completed the scheduled tasks, no time in between the 2. they both appeared at the same time. when windows booted back up, no change whatsoever.

    When I ran PM on an xp machine, it needed to be run from the command prompt, from the bootable cd.
