Author: mety Nagm Labels::



Because programs such as Partition Magic don't work on Windows Vista, some of you may be wondering how to resize partitions without losing any data. The good news is that you probably won't be needing those programs because Windows Vista can manage your partition resizing.

To resize a partition with Windows Vista, follow these steps:
Be sure to back up any valuable information, because there is a slight chance that data can be lost when dealing with partitions.
