About Partition Magic

  • Imagine how disorganized your office would be if you kept all your files in one drawer. Surprisingly, this is similar to the way many people organize the space on their hard disks. With PartitionMagic, you can quickly and easily create partitions, which act as "file drawers," on your hard disks for storing valuable information such as data files, applications, and operating systems. Storing information in separate partitions helps you organize and protect your data, safely run multiple operating systems, and reclaim wasted disk space.

    PartitionMagic enables you to secure your data by physically separating it from other files. Separate partitions also make backups to networks and removable drives easy. PartitionMagic helps you reliably run multiple operating systems on the same computer. Some versions of PartitionMagic also include BootMagic, a powerful boot manager that helps you safely install new operating systems and lets you choose which operating system you want to use when starting your computer.

    Because of limitations with the FAT file system which is DOS, Windows 95, and Windows 98, as much as 40 percent of your hard disk space can be wasted. PartitionMagic reclaims wasted space quickly and safely by using more efficient partition sizes. It can also convert FAT partitions to FAT32 and vice versa. In addition to powerful partitioning features, PartitionMagic offers a variety of other options. For instance, you can perform partitioning operations and view the changes that will be made before applying them to your system. Additionally, you can view comprehensive information about your hard disk geometry and your hardware system, and you can resize root directories (in FAT) to make room for more long filenames.
