I have had version 8 for some time and have successfully been using the included Boot Magic for multiple OS installs but I have now upgraded my PC and have multiple Tb disks with partitions over 300Gb. PM is now having major problems (particularly on the DOS based rescue disks) saying there (non-existant) problems with my disks.
The specs for PM say that it only handles partitions up to 300Gb and version 8 is quite old which is why I want to find out about future plans for the software.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I'm on old PM devotee too but I suspect that part of the reason for not developing further for VISTA is that VISTA itself does have built in the ability to shrink an existing partition without damaging data and then to create a new partition in the free space. Many people may not need more than that basic function.
And the other factor is that there are two alternative tools that are as fully functioned as PM8 so far as I know and which do work on VISTA. So Symantec may have decided that there is no room for a third -- it would look as if they bought PowerQuest for the imaging engine.
A shame but I guess that's life ....
In today's world I'd rather they concentrate on security!

I gave you a personal guess as to a reason.
I'm sure you will find what is at present available commercially for disk partitioning if you use Google -- and can then compare with it with what you need.
