I’ve used Partition Magic for years. I unfortunately lost my bootable CD and have hesitated purchasing the software again. I went to CompUSA this weekend to look into purchasing it again and was asking the rep where I could find it. As I was asking, I just muttered, “I wish there was a free open source alternative to this.” The rep said, “Have you heard of GParted?” I started a little smirk. I asked him, “Is that an open source alternative to Partition Magic?” He said, “Yep.” I left CompUSA, went straight home and downloaded GParted.
It is a 30 Mb ISO image and, when burned to CD, is bootable.
If you’ve used Partition Magic in the past, this is no different.
Screen shots coming soon!
Christopher Bennage: Oddly enough, that encourages me to shop at CompUSA.
