Open Source partition juggling?
Okay, I do this in what seems like an annual cycle: Juggle hardware and operating systems around on my home PCs. The tool I always seem to lose and need again is something to safely allow me to resize and move hard drive partitions, whether they be Linux or Windows. Has anyone finally made a reliable Open Source tool for this yet?
Generally, I reach for Partition Magic for the job. It's never failed for me. But, generally, I need to buy a new copy of it every time I get around to using it again. I mean, who really needs to repartition a drive more than a few times in a year? (Okay, you can put your hand down. You need to get out more.)
Well, this time it looks like I need it again. I have v6.0, which apparently makes WinXP choke and drown in its own vomit. I don't really want to buy Partition Magic again. Could I just rent your copy for about $10-20 or so? I've considered wiping WinXP and re-installing Win98 just because things seemed easier then. It just seems like this is such a common task when you're screwing with Linux that this would be Done.
Hmm, maybe I'll just pay for the fine product again. :) It does work flawlessly for me, even if I only do use it once.
