WinXP partition resize troubles
Posted on 2003-03-12
I recently upgraded to XP from a Win2k install. I have three hard drives, all of which work fine after the upgrade. When I installed Win2k, I formatted a three gig partition on my master drive for the OS install, and it worked fine right untill I uninstalled it. I have all the other space formatted as dynamic disks. When I installed XP, I formatted that 3 gig NTFS partition and installed WinXP onto that, but now it seems that 3 gigs isn't going to be enough for that partition, and I only have about 80 megs free. I've tried using partition magic 7, but it reports all the space on the dynamic disk partition of my master drive as part of the C drive. Powerquest said they don't support dynamic disks in PM7. PM 7 will let me set the size of my C NTFS partition, but I have no idea what it will do to the rest of the partitioned space on the disk.
I've thought about upgrading to PM8, but will that help? Are their any freware partition resizing utilities that will work in XP?
