Does anyone know of any software akin to Partition Magic, which will work on Windows 2000 Server?

PMagic 7 and above works on 2000 pro / server + sp4 without issues, I'm currently using v7 on my server to move some partion space about for easier defragging. It's the one utility I keep on floppy as well, never know when you'll need it, handy for lans when someone is having problems and can't use a Boot CD

Not according to the version I have (Partition Magic 8.0) - "PartitionMagic does not support Windows NT Server or Windows 2000 Servers." : taken from the ReadMe file. It simply will not install, it stops with an error message.

hmm always thought it did, but never used 2k Server but they made a Server edition, to get more cash from it I think, it has a 15 day trial ware. If its a one shot wonder your needing then worth a go, if worth it maybe buying it as well Wink

PM is very naughty trying to get you to use the server version and 10 times the price. Strangley version 5 works ok I have tried it on 2kserver and advanced server and it doesnt complain about the server.

Acronis www.acronis.com do a nice one or Vcom http://www.v-com.com/news/news_ar33.html
