    I need some free software to manage/create partitions. Acronis Disk Keeper is nice but no W7 compatibility.

    Win 7 comes with the ability to do just about everything but resize partitions (which is hard when they're in use anyway)

    What are you trying to do?

    I use Gparted. I have the image on a dvd and whenever I need to do something, I boot from it, and it loads it's little OS and you can do whatever you need to do with it.

    Thanks guys. Well I wanted to resize a few of my partitions and I found a great free program called Partition Wizard.

    Last time I used GParted I ended up having to use the Windows install disk to fix the MBR. :ohwell:

    I might look into Partition Wizard as well, gparted has scared me off.

    Cool, I've been looking for a good Win7 partition tool myself. I've had some bad experiences with GParted (it's great for the most part, just failed me a few times), so I try to avoid using it.
