To change PartitionMagic preferences

  • 1. Click General > Preferences.
    2. Select Allow 64K FAT Clusters for Windows NT/2000/XP if you want to create FAT partitions with 64K clusters. This lets you use PartitionMagic to create FAT partitions up to 4GB.
    Because DOS and Windows 3.x, Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows Me do not support cluster sizes larger than 32K, you cannot access a 64K partition using these operating systems.
    3. In the Skip bad sector checks group box, select the disks that you do not want PartitionMagic to check for bad sectors.
    If you disable bad sector checking and your hard disk has bad sectors, data loss can result. This option is selected by default.
    4. In the Set as Read-Only for PartitionMagic group box, select the disks that you do not want PartitionMagic to change.

    1. When you select (enable) the option in step 2, the 64K cluster size is available in the Resize/Move Partition and Resize Clusters dialog boxes.
    2. If you are using multiple operating systems, we recommend that you do not use 64K clusters.
    3. When PartitionMagic modifies partitions, it performs extensive testing to detect bad sectors on your hard disk. Newer disk types (such as Enhanced IDE and SCSI) often handle bad sectors internally, making such testing superfluous. For this reason, PartitionMagic lets you bypass these tests with Skip bad sector checks. When this option is enabled, the Resize/Move, Create, Copy, and Format operations run faster.
    4. In step 4, if your computer has an older disk and a newer one, you could check the older disk and skip the newer one.
    5. In step 5, there are several exceptions in which PartitionMagic will make changes even if you have selected disks in this option. For example, if the disk contains the boot partition, some files may be changed, such as the Windows NT boot initialization file. Or, if you tell PartitionMagic to run DriveMapper automatically, certain files (such as initialization and shortcut files), may be changed.
