Posted in Utilities, Windows

Partition Logic

Similar to renowned Partition Magic (previously from PowerQuest, now part of Symantec), the latest version of Partition Logic 0.63, a free hard disk partitioning and data management tool, has been released.

Users can create, delete, format, defragment, resize, and move partitions and modify their attributes. In addition, it can copy the entire hard disks from one to another.

Based on the Visopsys operating system, Partition Logic is a free software under the terms of the GNU General Public License that is bootable from CD or floppy disk. Furthermore, it can run as a standalone system, independent of the operating system that you have.

It provides an alternative to commercial programs, such as Partition Magic, Drive Image and Norton Ghost.

System Requirement

  • # Pentium-class x86 processor
  • # 32 megabytes RAM memory (16 megabytes in text mode)
  • # IDE (ATA) hard disks for partitioning.
  • # IDE (ATAPI) CD-ROM drive, if booting from the CD version.
  • # Standard PC floppy disk, if booting from the floppy disk version.
  • # For graphics mode, a VESA 2-compatible graphics card with linear framebuffer support.
  • # PS/2-style mouse, in graphics mode

The following are not supported:

  • * Partitioning of SCSI hard disks, and some SATA hard disks
  • * Non MS-DOS/MBR-style partition tables (i.e. Sun, BSD, EFI/GPT)
  • * Formatting filesystems other than FAT and EXT2
  • * Resizing filesystems other than NTFS (Windows XP filesystems)
  • * Serial mice
  • * USB keyboards and mice
  • * Keyboard layouts other than UK English, US English, Italian, or German

The change log for version 0.63 is located here. This release is mainly a maintenance and bugfix release, with numerous small tweaks to improve the system. New features, such as the ability to format and resize Linux partitions, reliable loading, detailed CPU detection, and simple text editors, were also included.
