  • WOT: computer gurus need help with partitions

    I want to install windows 7 and keep my current XP OS on there until I am positive that all my DAW software and plug-ins work with 7 but I'll need to partition one of my drives to do so.

    Is there a utility that anyone knows of that can partition a drive without reformatting?

    If not, could you recommend a good disk cloning app?

    Thanks.

    Partition Magic can probably do it but it will most likely take ages and might **************** everything up.

    I'd just google or contact the developers of the plugins to see if they work properly in Win7.

      I can't take that chance at this point in time.

      I might partition the data disk and load 7 on that disk instead of risking it with my C drive.

        Yep. Partition Magic can do it but it can **************** your world up too. Always best to create partitions before loading OS.

        What plugs are you wondering about?
