    Depends on who you ask

    If you have not done so, look here: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/4133. Opinions/results vary according to who you consult.

    Am I to assume you have Googled the issue, e.g., tried and failed to obtained satisfactory results?

    Acronis products for Windows environment..

    GParted is a fabulous tool. If you know how to use it...I see it as far from useless...:p

    Misunderstood??

    After reading 911medic's post the thought occurs to me that I might have misunderstood your initial post, i.e., I thought you were interested in learning how to use Vista's built-in tool.

    911medic is spot on if you want a non-MS app. Specifically, Acronis Disk Director Suite will safely partition a disk in any way you wish. As he mentioned GParted is also an excellent open source (free) app that you can find at Sourceforge.

    I cannot imagine what keywords you may have Googled such that you received useless info. Albeit technically oriented, one hit would certainly be the MSDN Library.

    Final thought: NEVER use Partition Magic! :eek:
