Disk Partition Resize Trouble and Partition Questions
i'm trying to resize a fat32 partition and i get an error with qtparted - so it isn't going to work. yes, i scandisked and defragged, although, i don't think i rebooted from the defrag (i had to do all this in a 2nd computer b/c win98 won't boot my current computer).
i read that rebooting may be an important issue here. should i set up the win98 drive in the older computer, reboot and then try qtparted again, or am i wasting time?
i read that fips is an alternative.
can fips (dos program) run on a winxp computer (dos emulator???)? what abotu with a dos boot cd? do i need to move the HD to the old computer and boot dos from there (since HD runs win98)?
i have 8 total gigs i want to keep for win98 (6.5 gigs currently used). do i use fips to split off this 8 gig partition and then use another program to format the the other partition(s)?
i red ranish can do all this in one program. is it a good program?
thanks for the guidance.
