Magic 8.0 description
Partitioning your hard drive plays an essential role in maintaining your
computer-preventing conflicts, protecting data, improving efficiency, and
increasing performance. PartitionMagic allows you to create, resize,
merge and convert partitions without destroying data. Award-winning
PartitionMagic Pro from Symantec is a leader in hard-drive partitioning
software. PartitionMagic Pro allows you to create, resize, move, and convert
partitions without destroying your data. You can quickly and easily create
partitions, which can act as file drawers on your hard disks for storing
valuable information such as data files, applications, and operating systems.
Storing information in separate partitions helps you organize and protect your data,
safely run multiple operating systems, and reclaim wasted disk space.
hope this helps
While you did a Anti virus scanning and fixing, the anti virus software purged or corrupted one of the .bat files or probably the shell script. The file Sola.bat was not operatable and Due to this you are not able to open the partitions.
Its wise to run the Windows Xp professional CD and run a Repair to Back the files which would work.
If the disk partition has an issue, on Active drive, you wont have the OS part initialised while booting. It would say A Valid OS not found or Non Bootable Partition. Good Luck.
Since you have used the recovery disc to restore the system, it will automatically create partitions on the system, in your case, just one major partition which is Drive C (C:). If you want to add partitions on your system, you can use partition editor software such as Norton Partition Magic 8.0 and Acronis Partition Manager. These software gets a portion of the main Partition (Unused / Free space) and creates a new one. You can create multiple partitions depending on the size of the Hard Drive on the system. These Software are not Free, if you want to use a free software for editing the parition, you can use Gparted (Found in : http://gparted.sourceforge.net/ ). Though Gpartedis free, it is harder to use compared to the first 2 software mentioned. If you want to use a user friendly sofware, I suggest that you use Acronis Partition Manager or Norton Partition Magic 8.0.
