I’m asking just in case, is there a perfect Partition Magic replacement for Windows Seven 64 bits ?

Hi guys,

As the title says, I’m trying to find a perfect replacement for good old winXP’s Powerquest/FuckenSymantec Partition Magic program, working with Windows Seven 64 bits :)

Freeware or unrestricted shareware (√† la winrar, only imposing an annoying nagging “buy me” window on startup, for instance) would be better, the more time passes the more I’m reluctant to pirating software (cmon, Gimp devs, we only ask you to compete with a billionaire company !), but I’m not entirely opposed to having to resort to a commercial program (*cough*thepiratebayhelps*cough*).

And the required features are most basical ones : resizing, merging, converting or splitting partitions, without bothering me with dynamic partitions as Windows’ own utility does (ruling that one out). I’m hostile to a linux app working on a live-CD, I need something that doesn’t require a computer reboot (sorry Gparted, you’re out).

Biribiri recommended¬†Free Partition Wizard Home Edition, but the non-paying version of that program won’t merge&resize partitions, for instance.

Is there a perfect, ideal program you would recommend ? Thanks for the help ! :)

Why don't you try "Easeus Partition Master". If I'm not mistaken they support Win 7 64 bit and their Home version is free. I'm using it too.

G Parted, easy to use and its open source. You'll need a USB stick or a CD (works like a live CD)

I wrote I don't want a program making me reboot. For heaven's sake, I wrote it, that Gparted wasn't an option.

you can simply use the program available withing windows 7 to resize/create/change drive letter/etc to access it simply go on the windows button right click computer select manage when the screen pops up go in disk management the rest chould be simple enough to understant when you get there

For heaven't sake, I wrote windows' own utility was an option I was rejecting. I wrote it :D

I faced your same problem and I don't remember why but I ended up with Paragon Partition Manager. Maybe I saw something on a wiki about "equivalent programs".

It's not a clone but it's very similar to Partition Magic.

Unfortunately I have it pirated. I started writing this post thinking it was a free version, but I checked just in case (I mistook it for Comodo Firewall, which does have a free version).

I'll take a look, thanks :)

Oliver tu t'en doute certainement à présent, ce que tu demandes est très spécifique et n'est disponible que dans un programme payant ! Dommage.

Le meilleur logiciel du moment en payant est Acronis Disk Director Home 11

Je jetterai un coup d'oeil, merci :)

Acronis disk director home.
And thats from someone who use to use only PM all the time.

though i think youll need to ask Jack Sparrow about it. wink wink nudge nudge etc.

Haha, funny way to present things, asking Jack Sparrow :D

I would say any Acronis Software would be a good choice for you, it offers backup, and partition re-sizing solutions. I have been using mine for a while, but it is an older version, and I can't remember if you must reboot or not when using it.
Im using a new PC now, and forgot to reinstall it on here. Though in order for it to be used as "non-trial" software, you would need a pirated version of it.

Going to take a look, thanks :)

Personally never had good luck with Acronis but hey your mileage may very.

Afaik Windows Seven has its own Partioning Program oO

Oliver AKA The Admin

Yep, and it forces the creation of dynamic disks, however my nux partition wouldn't be able to access dynamic disks. And it can't operate if there is no spare size after the partition.

I want a real program doing a real job :D

What do you mean, no good luck ? Lost data ?

Partition Wizard may be an option. It's free for home use, no ads, intuitive interface (my opinion).

Personally, if you use linux, you can use gparted. Its a wonderful program. Never had a problem with it. If you dont have linux you can install puppy linux on a 256 mb flash drive and run it at startup. Then just run gparted.
