Question Partition Magic Help/other partition programs

i downloaded partition magic, but to actually manage the partitions you have to pay a whopping $70. Since I'm only going to use this once, im not going to waste that much . Are there any free ones out there? Thanx

is there!? I've never noticed one.
If u are talking about the one when u can make partitions when u are installing windows then u are correct, but I don't think that he wants to delete all the files in his partition. U need to delete the old partition (= lose all files on it) to make new one(s) if u use the one inside windows install.

naw, just go to administrative Tools in control panels,

choose computer management, then choose "disk management" on the left hand column bar.

everything else should be straight foward... but if ur unsure. ask.
