Used it all the time back when I did the computer repair thing. Haven't used it much since then, though.

What's up?

Gparted is much easier to use and free. But Since windows 7 you can do everything in the OS itself.

I'm trying to change the partition on my flash drive so it will accept files larger than 4 gigs. I know I can change it to NTSF but then my xbox won't read that format. My problem is Partition magic won't recognize my flash drive.
