  1. I downloaded Partition Magic this Morning to increase the size of one of my partions on my Matxtor 80Gig Drive.
    Each partion were equal in size BUT C drive was Fat32 and E drive as NTFS
    Partion Magic started it 3 step Process after I selected now much bigger I the C drive was going to be.
    It rebooted and remove 20gig from the NTFS partion and convertered to the Fat32 partion. it rebooted.
    Now I have a Flashing cursor and C Drive is empty like 0 bites used and the size as before I started.
    D drive is 6 gig and E drive is an Invalded drive spec.
    AND No I did NOT make a RESUCE DISK as I have no floopy drive in the system.
    So MAxtor downloadable Disk repair will not wrok on this system
    Any Ideas?

    um, you needed to wait more. Partition magic works, but it is SLOW. If you didn't wait for it to complete, your hard disc is corrupted now. I hope you backed your software and files up. ALWAYS back files up before attempting a registry operation.
