wow... Longhorn is awesome and it's really cool. I just got done installing it now. Hey Gadget Guru. You say something about exploer.exe crashed on you. Why did it crash? As of right now. It's not crashing on me.

Hey everyone. Partition Magic will not work with Longhorn. It can only be on Windows NT Workstation 4.0, Windows 2000 and Windows XP. I hate that. I really wanted to use Partition Magic with Longhorn. I guess i can't

why? win2k, XP and I'm willing to bet Longhorn as well, all have a disk
management tool to manage your partitions and drives.

Right-click on My Computer, choose Manage. Go to Disk Management.

Everything you need, except for the ability to resize partitions, is right
there.

partition magic should not be dependant so much on OS as it would for partition type and the longhorn has ntfs or fat32 partition just like Xpo does... so therefore shoudl work fine for you...

I'm using FAT32 for Longhorn. After i installed partition magic. This is the message i'm getting.

PartitonMagic can only ru on Windows NT Workstation 4.0, Windows 2000, and Windows XP.

Does anyone know why it won't run on Longhorn? Could it be that i'm running Longhorn on FAT32? Thanks.

Possibly, I think you should be using NTFS anyway, as I believe its a better file system. However, I would think it would work for both. I really do not know though.

I'm using the Alpha version of Windows Longhorn. I think partition magic should work when either beta or the final release comes out. :bigsmurf:

If partition magic is an older software than windows, there are bound to
be some compatibility issues. This goes with ANY piece of software.

True but isnt a partition, A PARTITION, i mean fat 32 is fat 32 and ntfs is ntfs right? so as long as the program runs it should be fine i would think.
