Four Steps to Complete a Task

  • You complete a task (or operation) two different ways in PartitionMagic. You can use a wizard from the Tasks pull-down menu to guide you through a task or you can complete a task manually.
    To complete a task manually, you do the following:
    1. Select a hard disk or partition.
    2. Select an operation.
    3. Apply the changes to your system.

    Selecting a hard disk and partition
    You can select a partition without first selecting a hard disk. To select a partition, click it in the disk map or partition list on the main screen.
    To select a hard disk, click the title bar on the disk map. There are two operations that can be performed on a hard disk: delete all the partitions or display information about the hard disk. When you select a hard disk, its partitions display in the partition list in the main window.

    Selecting an operation
    After you have selected a disk and a partition, you can select an operation using the menu bar, toolbar, the Operations panel of the action panel, or the quick menu. To select an operation, do one of the following:
    1. From the menu bar, click Partition, then choose an operation. The steps in this Help use the menu bar as the preferred method.
    2. From the toolbar, click the button for the operation.
    3. From anywhere inside the disk map, or partition list, right-click the partition you want to change, then click the operation from the context menu.

    If an operation cannot be performed on the selected partition, the operation is dimmed (unavailable).
    PartitionMagic performs status operations--Info, Check for Errors, and MS ScanDisk--immediately. All other operations are stored in a queue in the Operations Pending dialog box until you apply them.

    Undoing the last operation
    You can undo the last operation that was added to the queue in the Operations Pending dialog box by doing one of the following:
    1. Click General > Undo Last Change.
    2. Click Undo last to the right of the Wizard buttons in the bottom area of the PartitionMagic window.
    3. Click View > Operations Pending > Undo Last.
    4. Click the Undo button on the toolbar.
    5. Press < Ctrl+Z >.

    Discarding all operations
    To discard all operations that you have added to the queue in the Operations Pending dialog box, do one of the following:
    1. Click General > Discard All Changes.
    2. Click View > Operations Pending > Discard All.
    3. Press < Ctrl+D >.

    Applying the changes to your system
    As you complete tasks using the Operations menu, the disk map, and partition list reflect the changes you have made. However, no changes physically take place on your system until you apply them.
    You can tell when changes have been made but not yet applied to your system when the Apply option appears in the main window and the status box in the lower right corner of the main window indicates that operations are pending.
    To apply changes to your system, do one of the following:
    1. Click General > Apply Changes.
    2. Click Apply changes to the right of the Wizard buttons in the bottom area of the PartitionMagic window.
    3. Click the Apply button on the toolbar.
    4. Press < Ctrl+A >.

    Progress bars that display when you apply changes are an estimation only and can pause for several minutes, even though PartitionMagic is still working correctly. If you think your computer has locked up, be patient and PartitionMagic will finish the operation.
