Is PartitionMagic 7.0 safe?

    I recently had 2 IBM 40GB HDs crash and when I returned them to the store the owner swears that the only reason for the crashes was because I used PartitionMagic 7.0 with Windows XP. Has anyone else had this problem or heard of this being a possibility? I like PM but now I’m unsure whether or not to use it again.

    thats complete BS, unless you did something horribly unsafe with the drives

    Partition Magic 7 is designed to be compatible with XP.

    Ive used it quite a bit and haven't had any problems.

    If I were in your position, I'd be compelled to ask the store owner for the technical reference for his claim that Partition Magic somehow buggered up the drives... and then I think I'd keep doing it until he voluntarily upgraded me to a drive that didn't flake out on me. ;)

    I’ve never had a problem with other versions of PM so I pretty much figured the store owner was trying to cover for his own incompetence and faulty products ... just wanted to make sure. Thanks for the replies.
