PartitionMagic Interface

  • The PartitionMagic interface is composed of the action panel, the menu bar, toolbar, disk map, partition list, wizard buttons, and the legend. You can display/hide and size different parts of the interface to organize the PartitionMagic window just the way you want.

    Menu Bar and Toolbar

    In the PartitionMagic main window, the menu bar and a toolbar appear at the top of the window. The menu bar gives you access to all of PartitionMagic's features, while the toolbar gives you quick access to commonly used options. You can display or hide the toolbar. Hiding the toolbar increases the display area of partition information. The option "Disks" on the menu bar will only appear if you have more than one hard disk to choose from on your system.

    Partition Information

    The partition information area displays all the partition data for the selected hard disk. It consists of the action panel, disk map, and partition list.

    Action Panel
    The Action Panel lets you choose a task, begin a partition operation, and view the pending operations.

    Disk Map

    The disk map shows the partitions graphically and to approximate scale. (You can also scale the disk map display by clicking View > Scale Disk Map.) Each partition is represented by a different color according to the file system it uses. If the selected hard disk contains logical partitions, the logical partitions are shown within an extended partition. The disk map will also show unallocated space (space that is not assigned to any partition) as a solid dark gray block (see image below).

    If your system has more than one disk, you may need to scroll the disk map to see all available disks.
    Drag the bar that separates the disk map from the partition list, up or down to adjust the viewing area.

    Partition List
    The partition list shows you text information about each partition on your machine such as the drive letter, label, file system type, size in megabytes, amount of used and unused space in megabytes, status, and whether the partition is primary or logical.

    Primary partition drive letters are flush left, followed by a colon and the volume name. Logical partition drive letters and volume labels are indented. An asterisk (*) appears in place of a drive letter for:
    1. Hidden partitions
    2. Extended partitions
    3. Partitions with file systems not supported by the active operating system
    4. Unallocated space

    A partition's status can be:
    1. Active: The partition the computer boots from.
    2. Hidden: Partitions that do not have a drive letter and, therefore, cannot be accessed by the current operating system. Partitions can be hidden by the operating system (which may hide all primary partitions except the active one), or you can hide partitions yourself using PartitionMagic. Under Windows 2000/XP Professional, hidden partitions are permitted to have a drive letter.
    3. None: Partitions that are not active or hidden.

    The legend is displayed just above the status bar located at the bottom of the PartitionMagic window. You can use the legend to help you understand the different colors used in the action panel, disk map, and partition list.
    You can display or hide the Legend. Hiding the Legend increases the display area of partition information.
