Windows 7: Amazing new Partition Wizard feature

Amazing new Partition Wizard feature

The latest Partition Wizard v7.6 has a new Extend feature that extends a partition with space from any other partition even non-adjacent! This is pushing the boundaries of what a partition tool can do.

This video shows how it works: How to extend partition easily with partition magic – Partition Wizard video help.

As always if resizing the OS partition I would use the boot disk for added safety. But it just equalized the free space on my 3 secondaries from the desktop!

I don't think I've resized a partition in at least a decade, but cool non the less

It's an amazing tool which we have helped make famous in countless complicated partitioning operations/rescues here daily for 3+ years.

When SIW2 first began giving out these PW steps many of the operations were not even known to be possible, yet we regularly do a half dozen of them in one go.

There may be no app that has had such highly visible stress testing and never had its boot disk fail.

And there is no other Help site that does this except here, largely thanks to the way you set it all up John.

Now that will be a very handy feature. It'll cetainly help make fixing messed up partition posts here easier.
