Partitioning with restore hd

  MichelleC 10:19 17 Jan 06

I want to create another patition on laptop which has restore/recovery xp disc. Is there any probs I should be aware of as I assume there's a 'hidden' partition which will restore to factory settings when activated by xp disc. I have Partition Magic 8.

Sounds reasonably fraught!
If you really do need to create another partition I suppose it is possible the way you describe.

The danger as I see it would come from the new partition if it took over the drive letter from the "hidden partition." This would change all the paths for the rescue.

If partition magic will show this hidden drive and you can be sure that a new one is the last on the HD, then good luck!

That's what I was worried about Diemmess. It doesn't show the hidden so I think I'll leave best alone. Cheers.
