Default PartitionMagic 8.0 - Error 626 - please help

In article , Arno

gparted is a very reasonable GNU replacement for partition
magic. Other then PM, it has never killed any drives for
me so far.


Same here. It's rather slow, but I would rather have slow and reliable
than fast and unreliable.

With PM, my experience in mor ecomplex cnages is
2 out of 3 failed with the disk messed yup enough that a
fresh partitioning was needed.


PM8 was OK for me, with one exception: if it popped up a dialog on
startup saying it had found a partition table/CHS inconsistency and
would you like PM to fix it, saying yes trashed the disk. If you
ignored the message and carried on it worked fine.

So maybe Sumantec did the world a vavour.


Anyone that inflicts Norton (anti-virus, system commander, etc.) on the
world is hardly doing the world a favour ) They're worse than the
viruses and malware they claim to be able to detect.
