Partition Magic stupidness [Jun. 20th, 2001|05:32 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
So, I resize a partition, create some partitions, realize I want it differently, so I hit undo a few times, but one too many times and I'm back at the beginning. Then I resize again, add my 3 partitions, then apply changes.

It reboots, and it says there are 11 changes to be done. I think, "Well, that's odd, but whatever." After the 4th one I realize what's happening ... it's doing all my changes, including the ones I un-did, and then doing the opposite of the action for when I pressed undo. How fucking stupid. Whoever implemented that should be taken out back and shot.

But it's okay, because I'm eating apple sauce and listening to Bran Van 3000. I just wish it'd finish in the next hour... it's so slow.

Does your copy of partition magic have floppy disk images? My (old) copy does, with a windows-like GUI on top off DOS that eliminates the constant rebooting... very nice.
