Windows 7: Dual boot XP and 7 : Uninstall of 7

16 Apr 2010   #11

The only fully safe partitioning function I've found is Windows Disk Mgmt to Shrink Volume.

Any 3rd party resizing operation can fail, but in 100+ we have helped with here using the best WIn7 manager, free Partition Wizard bootable CD, none have failed so far to my knowledge. But you should always back up your files anyway - and a Win7 system image if you can't stand to lose your install.

The performance difference due to HD position is fractional but enough that I would not have my OS way out in right field. The laser docks on the other side of the HD, so it is extra work for it that's unnecessary.

Others may know more about this and be able to comment on it more authoritatively.
