Editor's review Partition Logic
Introducing PARTITION LOGIC Partition Logic is essentially a free tool for partitioning of hard disk and managing data. With this tool, users are able to create, erase, delete, defragment, format, copy, move and resize partitions as well as modification of their attributes. You can use it to copy one hard disk entirely to the other. This software is free and is availed under the terms of GNU General Public License. Partition Logic is essentially based on Visopsys operating system and boots from a floppy disk or CD and it is capable of running as a standalone system and it is independent of the regular operating system. The program comes as an ideal alternative to commercial programs like Drive Image, Partition Magic and Norton Ghost. Limitations of Partition Logic • Some SATA hard disks don’t work with it • Offers no hardware support for those non-USB SCSI hard disks • Only supports DOS/ Windows- style MBR partition tables • Doesn’t support BSD or Sun disk labels or the GPT/ EFI tables that are used on IntelMac and Itanium platforms • It isn’t able to format partitions as EXT3 or NTFS. Can only format them as EXT2, Linux Swap and FAT (12/16/32). • Can’t resize EXT or FAT file systems and can only resize Linux swap and NTFS (Windows XP) • For serial mice and PCMCIA, it has no hardware support Future releases of this application are expected to fix these limitations. The new release is a major one and comes with numerous new features and an updated look which includes UDF (DVD) file system support, 64 bit disk support and also GPT partition table support and file browsing functionality. There has also been new addition on its functionality and administrative applications.
