Windows 7: Partitioning a HDD

23 Dec 2012   #21

W7, W8.1

Well good news all round here,Job just completed without any loss of data.
100% as expected & congrats.

Have used Partition Master here for years, literally 100's of jobs on all sizes of HD's, new and old, xp\w7\w8, has been damn stable and never failed. The recommendation is based upon that experience. But when doing any such work, 1st always make a disk image, as stated in my original post (some unknown hd or pc error may pop up, a power failure etc).

Sorry if I stepped in in the midst of an ongoing discussion by proposing an alternative, but it got the job done to the OP's satisfaction. Happy xmas to all.
