Before You Run PartitionMagic

  • Before the start of a PartitionMagic session in which you will be applying one or more operations to your system, you should always complete the following items:

    1. Install the most recent Windows 95, 98, Me, NT Workstation, or 2000, XP Professional patches.
    Make sure you have all the most recent patches installed when running Windows 95/98/Me/NT Workstation/2000/XP Professional.

    2. Back up your hard disk.
    Your data is the most valuable part of your machine. Although it is unlikely that PartitionMagic would damage your data, other system failures, such as hardware, software, or power, can put your data at risk if they occur during PartitionMagic operations. PowerQuest's Drive Image is useful for creating an image backup of the partitions you want to change. You can also use Drive Image to restore the image partitions to their original state.

    3. Create a Windows boot disk.
    The boot disk lets you boot Windows if you have problems. For information about creating a boot disk, refer to the Microsoft knowledge base article Q119467, "Creating a Boot Disk for an NTFS or FAT partition."

    4. Run Check for Errors option.
  • For all partitions that you plan to manipulate, click Partition > Check for Errors. Although PartitionMagic checks partitions for errors and can repair minor problems, more serious errors cause PartitionMagic to abruptly end an operation.
    Check for Errors can find and fix most common errors. The Check for Errors option is dimmed (unavailable) on the Windows boot partition because there are always open files. For this partition, click Partition > MS ScanDisk.

  • 5.Shut down all applications.

    You should not run PartitionMagic with other applications, including virus scanners. If you are running Windows NT Workstation, make sure no other users are attached to your workstation (in a peer-to-peer network) before running PartitionMagic.

    6. Connect to a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply).
    PartitionMagic will not be able to recover if a power failure occurs during repartitioning. By having the machine and all connected hard drives protected by UPSs, you can avoid the problems caused by power failures.

    7. Tips
    Because of conflicts that can result from different hardware and system configurations, do not create an application or operating system partition on one computer and then move that hard disk to another computer. Data loss may occur.
