Partition Magic is a computer program for hard disk drive partitioning originally made by the Power Quest Corporation but now owned by Symantec. The program runs on Microsoft Windows operating systems (only 2000 and XP, not Vista) or from a bootable CD-ROM and enables creation and modification of partitions. Existing partitions can be resized without loss of data.
We can clearly see that Partition Magic has some limitations in terms of the operating systems that it supports. What's more, it is not a free software. You would probably spend about 60$ for the Partition Magic if you were to purchase it.

Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) (codenamed "Springboard") was released on August 6, 2004 after several delays, with an emphasis on security. Unlike the previous service pack, SP2 added new functionality to Windows XP, including a firewall, improved Wi-Fi support, such as WPA encryption compatibility, with a wizard utility, a pop-up ad blocker for Internet Explorer 6, and Bluetooth support. The new welcome screen during the kernel boot removes the subtitles "Professional", "Free Edition" and "Embedded" since Microsoft introduced new Windows XP editions prior to the release of SP2. The green loading bar in Free Edition and the yellow one in Embedded were replaced with the blue bar, seen in Professional and other versions of Windows XP, making the boot-screen of operating systems resemble each other. Colors in other areas, such as Control Panel and the Help and Support tool, remained as before.
