... roll the dice... Not snake eyes!!! Oh, wait... this isnt las vegas... sorry :tazz:

Well, to be more helpful, i did a little research and partition magic, namely partition magic 8, seems to be takin some flak from users about this same thing, namely that its not being found, or missing or something in the chkdisk, but thier problems are generally along the lines of harddrives where they have multiple operating systems along with some problems about linux systems, which i think they said that is, i might be mistaken but perhaps if you can google that file for a downloadable version you might be able to replace it in whatever windows or program folder it belongs in, another solution might be found if you reinstall the program, several issues have arrisen involving checking whether you have xp or 2000 as the primary operating system, i assume you dont have linux caus thats just not MS friendly ;) , and to taht extent if you only have xp on thier you shouldnt have thier problems either which you havnt mentioned.
This means that you might want to make sure you also dont have any system admin issues in the way and make sure you have no problems that might interfere with files or any network/user stuff in the system services area of the admin commands of the control panel. This is about as much as i really paid attention to as my eyes were glazed over through most of it

I sill can't do it the normal way but if any body else has this problem try making a flopy (useing partition magic) and booting form that and use it to run Partition Magic in a sized down version. :tazz:

so you made floppies and ran partition magic from them and it worked? That would have been my suggestion.

The problem with floppy is you don't have all the tools. But there is one big advantage that makes this of little importance and that is you can ues the floppys when you have no operating system as I found out the three days ago when my computer died and I had to reinstall every thing. But first I partition out my hard drive. Glad I had all my documentsbacked up. :tazz:
