Commercial Partitioning Utilities

The commercial tools Acronis Disk Director (www.acronis.com) and PartitionMagic (www.symantec.com/norton/products/overview.jsp?pcid=sp&pvid=pm80)are also very popular and have friendly graphical interfaces. In our experience, PartitionMagic is easier to use than Acronis Disk Director. If you simply need to create or resize partitions (including NTFS), Linux now has tools that will do the job just as well as these commercial tools. However, the commercial tools do have some useful additional functionality (including built-in boot managers, which make it rather easy to boot multiple Windows partitions on the same machine).
