Windows 7: Urgent help needed - minitool wizard

Urgent help needed - minitool wizard

Hi all,

I wanted to test Macrium Reflect by creating a new partition on my hard drive with mini tool partition wizard and try to do a image and restore. I was trying to resize my c drive so I could make another drive and mini tool stated that the disk was in use and asked if I wanted to restart and have mini tool resize the drive. I said yes. When the computer restarted it it went to the partition tool before windows even started and it looked like it was doing the job and then went to a black screen that states

1 of 1 operations...

Resize partition
Partition letter c
Partition label os
Disk index 1
Partition index 3
New partition starting lba: 22900736
New partition size: 693105 mb

I tried hitting several keys on the keyboard and nothing works

This has been going on for about 20 min now, is something wrong? I am getting nervous and don't know if I should force a shut down by Turing the computer off and try a reboot. Please help

You need to use free Partition Wizard bootable CD in order for it to be failsafe like Disk Management.

If you had data protection mode box checked when you force shut down it will not interrupt the actual resizing, as it does everything virtually first and then actually completes the operations. I have bailed out of home version stalls before with no data loss. But you should have your files backed up anyway as repartitioning, repair or reinstall without being backed up is reckless.

I forced shut down and everything came back like normal. I guess I will be using the windows tool from here on out. I do have all my data backed up and my system imaged but I was creating a test partition to test my imaging program since I am new at this. Nothing worse then seeing that black screen and not knowing if your computer will start back up

If it was most any other partitioning program or boot disk you could well lose your data.

Based on thousands of uses here PW bootable CD is as failsafe as Disk Management.

I dont' know what the problem is with the latest Home version stalling but Minitool monitors these threads so they should know about it.
