PartitionMagic

  • PartitionMagic was a computer program for hard disk drive partitioning originally made by the PowerQuest corporation but now owned by Symantec. As of December 8, 2009, the Symantec website stated that they no longer offer Partition Magic. The program ran on Microsoft Windows operating systems (only 2000 and XP, not Vista or 7) or from a bootable CD-ROM and enabled creation and modification of partitions. Existing partitions could be resized without loss of data.

    PartitionMagic was capable of resizing NTFS or FAT (16 or 32) partitions without data loss, and could copy and move partitions, including to other disks. It also had various other features, including being able to convert between FAT16, FAT32 and NTFS, modify the cluster size of FAT16/32 and NTFS filesystems, and merge adjacent FAT or NTFS filesystems (all without data loss, though some NTFS-only metadata is lost on conversion to FAT). Additionally, it had somewhat limited support for ext2 and ext3 partitions.
    PartitionMagic releases 1–3 were offered both in OS/2 and Windows versions. Symantec's PartitionMagic version 8 only supported Windows.
