This should have been easy but...

I installed a SATA 160GB drive recently and have decided to resize the partitions using partiton magic 7.0

3 Partions, all NTFS C: is XP Boot D: has programs and E: is bulk storage.

Except that PM shows 17 GB free and ~160GB used and an option to allocate it??? Yes, it is a 160 GB drive.

The PM listing for C: and D: shows the volume names corrupted.
C:?C? and D:?II the first I has an umlatte over it.
Should be C:System and D:programs which is what appears in Explorer.

WTF? This scares me. Does PM 7.0 have an issue with larger HD's or SATA?
I may have resized once already. I can't remember.

To answer your question, yes pm7.0 has problems with large partitions, I'd say try PM8 or another program.

Cool, hopefully I won't have to restore from the backup image, it's 2 weeks old...

I have used 8.0 for awhile now, everything I do with it works great.. Don't know what else to say.

What version? I borowed one to try and it's producing the identical results as 7.0 did. I removed 7.0 and checked the registry before installing 8.0.

Unfortunately I removed the 8.0 already before checking the version number.:dead:
