    Deep ****! Partition Magic 8 Hang while Resizing.

    Good day!

    OS:2000 Pro

    I have 2 Hard Disk. 3 Parttion.(C:,G: & E Drive
    C: Drive (On Hard Disk 1)
    and Grive and E: drive. On Hard Disk 2

    G Drive is NTFS: Which Contains all my homework and other important staff.
    E Drive is FAT32.

    While half way Resizing my partition G: & E: . My PC Hung.....
    (I was trying to make more space in E: by taking some space in G

    I have no choice but to restart my PC.

    After Reboot.
    I click "My Computer --- G: Drive"
    I comes an Error " G:\ is not accessible. The parameter is incorrect."

    I click on Partition Magic 8 ,
    and i click on the G: it path looks like this " G :?u? "

    I right click on G: and i click "Check Errors"
    And i got this message
    Severity : Critical

    Description :Seek error

    With a error popup "Error #7 Operation canceled by user"

    There's a reason why Partition Magic has all those warnings that pop up. I hope you had backups because once it hangs in the middle of a resize it's pretty well done for. You may be able to find some expensive data recovery tools that could recover files from that kind of error, but I know of none offhand.

    It never ceases to amaze me that people persist in using partition magic and other crap like that...............you get exactly what you deserve................do it properly, or don't bother................but you, like several of my friends have now discovered that have you not?.............

    Now, whilst I generally believe in copyright and stuff....................I sincerely hope you did not pay for that garbage

    I've used it a number of times, it works great. I would never assume data is safe to begin with however, and *ALWAYS* back my stuff up before resizing or anything like it.
