Sure I remember when all I needed was a floppy

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on May 20, 2006 01:04 AM
I still have my old copy of Partition Magic 6.0 around. It comes in a 2-in-1 package: a full-blown Windows version and a plain DOS version. Make a bootable Windows floppy, copy the DOS version of Partition Magic into it and:

- yes, it fits in a floppy

- yes, it has a GUI and mouse support

- yes, it handles FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, Linux swap and EXT2.

And I assume you know that you can turn an ext2 partition into ext3 without destroying its data.

Quick! Go get the bloat police.
