  1. Last year I lended my hard disk to a friend cos he wanted to format his disk and resize "his drives" (using windows 98 startup floppy!) and did not want to lose any data
    when i got it back i noticed that my partions changed from
    c->9.** D->10.** E->6.** F->11.6 (approx because of the 38.** i am not sure of exact point figure)
    to
    c->9.** D->10.** E->8.88 F-> 8.88
    He did not use any software to format just plain format and rezise using fdisk
    how is this possible I did not lose any data even!!
    today i use partition magic to do all disk partions without losing data

    Maybe he just copied the data off a partition, deleted the partition and recreated it with new size and finally copied the data back?

    Also, there are many FAT32 resizing tools like FIPS that are free and fit on a single floppy.
