Partition 167GB drive under XP
Posted on 2004-08-02
I have a new XP system with a 160GB drive and another with a 200GB drive. I would like to repartition.
I have always used Partition Magic, but it does not seem to work. It gives an error 1556, which is undocumented, and the only references I can find via Google also report other users who cannot find the documentation for it. There is nothing in the manuals or on the Symantec web site. So I have given up with Partition Magic, version 8.01 (for now). Seems the Symantec support is subpar compared to Powerquest.
In any case, I have looked for fdisk and cannot find it. Someone said it has been replaced by DiskPart, but the help function built into it is less than helpful.
Can anyone tell me how to partition this disk? (This reminds me of 1981).
