Partition tool a request for halp

by Chinookman / May 19, 2010 12:00 PM PDT

Just installed W-7 x64 along w/ Vista Ultimate x32. I had the hdd in three partitions but now want to merge the (former XP) spare partition into the W-7 to increase its size. I have had no success finding an application that will run on AMD's 6-core Phenom.
Anyone out there playing around with the new 6-core and have any info to share would be greatly appreciated.

You can use diskmanager or use paragon's Hard Disk Manager 2010 for the job

I'd try this with GPARTED. Those that don't backup ofter learn why I note backup first.

In reply to: AFTER YOU BACKUP.

I've contacted Paragon to make sure it will support the six core. I've already dealt with Acronis and they are working on a solution also therefore I will not make a purchase until the vendor confirms it's operability.
I did read the GPARTED and did not read where it will merge partitions which is what I really need. So it looks like Paragon unless Acronis surprises me early!.

Thanks everyone appreciate the help and have a great Memorial holiday.
Hoo-rah! "As you were" ......

The merge with GPARTED

Is a simple thing actually. No offense intended but why not shrink the partition to be gone, move items from one drive to the next, shrink the partition to be gone some more and repeat till done?

That's all well and good that Acronis and Paragon have some intention of fixing their software but today, now and for free I could "get it done."

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
