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Partition Magic is a computer program for hard disk drive partitioning originally made by the Power Quest Corporation but now owned by Symantec.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.

Some times, computer users would probably suffer from data loss, or system error, due to the sudden cessation of operation while using Partition Magic.
