Sorry to hear about that, Frank. Like many other people, I have also used Partition Magic for years without problems (upgraded to PM 8.0, never used PM Pro) although maybe the latest versions are not up to scratch. As an aside, I've just had VMware 4.5.2 crash on me (running under Linux, with Win2K as a guest OS, on a real hard disc). It wiped it's partition table completely, even PM couldn't rescue it. Had to install Windows XP from fresh.
