Managing your hard disk and creating, extending or otherwise modifying the existing partitions requires specialized software, since many of the operations cannot be carried out from Windows. One such utility is Partition Logic, an operating system independent application that ca be deployed either from a floppy disk or from a CD.
Not depending on your operating system
The standalone system is especially designed to help you create new partitions or erase existing ones. With Partition Logic you can modify their dimensions and change their attributes, not to mention the fact that you will be able to move and copy partitions just as easily.
Lets you easily format partitions
In case you need to defragment the disk or format partitions, these operations can also be done using Partition Logic. The interface is clean and user friendly and it displays all the needed details to facilitate the management of your HDD partitions.
Displays thorough info on processed drives
While this software is loaded, you can view details like partition type and size, filesystem, cylinders and attributes. Besides the above mentioned capabilities, you should note that you can also use Partition Logic to set a certain partition active, with a single mouse click.
Doing its job while you attend to you business
In case you need to access some files or move data from the target partitions while the program is running, you will be glad to know that there are some tools included in the package to help you carry out other tasks.
Thus, Partition Logic comes with a built-in file browser, computer explorer as well as some administrative utilities like display settings configuration or device management.
To sum it up, very light on system resources and able to run on old computers, with very limited specifications, Partition Logic can be one really useful tool. There are some limitations pertaining to the supported hardware devices, but if you still have an IDE (ATA) hard disk, it is worth a try when it comes to working with partitions.
