X64 system refers to x64 editions of Microsoft Windows client and server, Windows XP Professional x64 Edition and Windows Server 2003 SP1 x64 Edition were released in March 2005. Internally they are actually the same build (5.2.3790.1830 SP1), as they share the same source base and operating system binaries, so even system updates are released in unified packages, much in the manner as Windows 2000 Professional and Server editions for x86. Windows Vista, which also has many different versions, was released in January 2007.
All these systems are equipped with large scale storage devices. So the partition management is of equivalent importance.
About Partition Magic
Partition Magic is a computer program for hard disk drive partitioning originally made by the Power Quest Corporation but now owned by Symantec.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.
Partition Magic is capable of resizing NTFS or FAT (16 or 32) partitions without data loss, and can copy and move partitions, including to other disks. It also has various other features, including being able to convert between FAT16, FAT32 and NTFS, modify the cluster size of FAT16/32 and NTFS file systems, and merge adjacent FAT or NTFS file systems (all without data loss, though some NTFS-only metadata is lost on conversion to FAT). Additionally, it has somewhat limited support for ext2 and ext3 partitions.
Partition Magic releases 1-3 were offered both in OS/2 and Windows versions. Symantec's Partition Magic version 8 only supports Windows.
As we can see, Partition Magic works as a partition management software, but it has some limitations in both functions and the operating system it can support.
Partition Wizard is the partition magic alternative for x 64 systems
