    Good day everyone,
    I have just started using Vista Ultimate. In the past I have used Partition
    Magic for various reasons. However, I have found out this software does not
    work with Vista. I cannot even use the boot disks to do service to the HD.
    Does anyone know of a software that works similar to Partition Magic under
    Vista? I need to be able to create partitions etc. Right now I have a fouled
    up install of Vista. I want to create another partition in front of this one
    and set it active to install a new copy. But, I do not want to lose any
    documents I may have on the fouled partition Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Marcus

    Acronis Disk Director. Back up your documents *first*. You can get them
    from a rescue cd such as Knoppix if you can't get into Windows.

    I just partitioned a new hard drive using a standard Vista tool. Just look
    up "partition" in Help and go to the "Create a partition" item. You might
    just find that this will do your job.

    I would like to have more control over my partitions. Like Partition Magic,
    one can size, resize, create, convert primary and logical, actually look at
    what files are on a partition, and many other great features. I did already
    create a D Drive using the toll you refer to. But now with a questionable
    install on C drive, I would like to leave tat partition there, but put a new
    C drive in front of that partition for a new install.

    Thanks for the help though.
