Partition Magic Editor's Review
Partition Magic is a computer program that allows you to slice your hard drive up into several partitions. This allows one physical disc drive to be used as if it were several drives. Once created, the partitions can be re-sized without losing any of the data stored in them.
If your computer is running slowly or keeps crashing, it may benefit from using Partition Magic - if you organise your hard drive more effectively, then it will be much quicker and more reliable.
Partition Magic is simple to install and has an easy-to-use interface, so you should be up and running in no time.
This program does have a few compatibility issues and it does not run on Windows 7 or Windows Vista. However, it can manage partitions on both of these operating systems if it is started from a compatible OS, such as Windows NT, Windows XP or Windows 2000.
Pros: Partition Magic is easy to install and use. The help feature is useful when you do get stuck. Version 8 has a DataKeeper function, which assists you with backing up files.
Cons: The software is very dated and a new version is long overdue. It only allows you to create rescue disks using floppy disks, which many computers don’t have anymore.
Conclusion: Partition Magic is a handy tool that helps you keep a hard drive in order. It’s just a shame that it has not been updated to keep up with present-day technology and operating systems.
