PartitionMagic 8.0 can repartition your hard drive, set up multiple operating systems, and even perform scheduled backups to protect your data. The core program, which can be run from Windows or in DOS mode directly from a boot floppy, enables you to change the size of existing partitions, create new partitions, merge two partitions into one, and more. This is all achieved in a logical and straightforward way, using a new group of wizards and a number of safety checks to make sure you do what you intended.

Editorial Review

Partitioning your hard drive helps prevent system conflicts, protect data, improve efficiency, and increase performance. PowerQuest's PartitionMagic allows you to create, resize, move, split, merge, recover, and convert partitions quickly and easily, without harming your data.

The new file browser in PartitionMagic 8.0 allows you to move files from one partition to another regardless of partition type. Step-by-step wizards let you view changes that will be made before applying them, and PowerQuest DataKeeper provides automatic file backup. PartitionMagic 8.0 also includes BootMagic, which enables you to safely run multiple operating systems on the same computer. Plus, this version offers support for partition sizes up to 160 GB, and lets you improve performance with more efficient cluster sizes.

PartitionMagic lets you safely run multiple operating systems on the same PC. Migrate to the latest operating systems like Microsoft Windows XP or Linux at your own pace while keeping your current operating system intact. Use the Install Another OS wizard to easily create new partitions for additional operating systems. PartitionMagic also allows you to fine-tune your system performance by converting to a more efficient file system, changing cluster sizes, or adding a Linux SWAP file partition.
