    Can you uninstall the Partition Magic software program from your system once you have used it to partition the HDD?

    THanks.

    I would recommend that you let the program alone inasmuch as you may find that you want to resize the partition or make other changes.

    While I keep it on due to its tiny footprint if you don't want it on it won't affect anything to remove it.

    Thanks. Another question - When partition magic asks to make the emergency floppy disks, I keep getting an error message saying that there isn't enough space on the disk. It is looking to add 1.457...MB on a 1.44MB floppy. Is there a larger sized floppy around that has come out recently that I don't know about?

    None that I'm aware of. I have used partition magic and have never made disks and have never had a need for one.

    I have an XP computer with Drive C: and Drive D:.......I wish to make C: drive larger and D: smaller. I purchased Partition Magic 8.0 to be able to accomplish this. However, while reading the 'online' manual, almost at the end of 167 pages or so, it states that if you have Norton SystemWorks you MUST run Partition Magic from rescue disks??? Here is what it specifically states......................

    "You can use PartitionMagic on a system where Norton SystemWorks is installed.
    However, you must run PartitionMagic from the rescue disks. If you attempt to run
    PartitionMagic under Windows with Norton SystemWorks installed, you may receive a
    disk-write error."

    I have Norton SystemWorks..............do I HAVE to run this program from the 'rescue disks' which they advise me to make in order to change C: from 20 GB to 35 GB and reduce my D: from 40 GB to 25 GB?????

    Any help here would be appreciated......I will not begin this project until I hear from one of you 'resident experts' and I certainly am NOT one myself. Thank you in advance for the help. I really do appreciate it!!!
