Partition Program


OSNN Veteran Original
Which partitioning program is safe? As in will not delete/erase all my data?

I have Partition Wizard at the moment and was about to do it, but seems like it formats everything....

Can anyone confirm if Partition Wizard is safe? I'd rather not install an extra program for no reason :)

I just used Easus Partition Manager this week on Windows 7 with no problems. Shrunk the boot partition from 465 GB to 120 GB and then created a new partition in the free space.

Should a partition manager ask to reboot to complete it? Because drive is in use. Is that normal?

Should not take long unless you are trying to move unmovable files...

...if you resize in the area of the MBR your system will no longer boot.

I just use gparted as I can view what may happen before I commit.

Its still at that part, should I hit the reset button?

Can you install an OS on a logical drive? I totally forget.
Can take a while depending on the amount of data needing to be moved in the shrink/merge.

There are no unmovable files when windows isn't running. I'd either go to bed or watch a movie or two.

Yeah, never stop a partition program while it i progress, unless it tells you to. You can lose everything.

As for Partition programs, the only one I will use is acronis disk director. Then I haven't used one in a long time, either.
