    I have a multi-disk system that has been partitioned using Partition Magic.

    I am thinking of purchasing DD10 and was wondering if there were any known issues with using DD10 on a system that had been partitioned with PM.

    If there are other threads on this Forum that deal with this issue I would be grateful for the links.

    TiA :)

    Howdy! Links including an already searched for term expire quickly here so they don't work very well :doubt:

    Hi Detox, see what you mean, tried the link supplied by "crofttk" but got the message " Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms"

    Anyone know of any issues with DD10 and PM8 o_O

    As for me, I'm not aware about such issues. I'm sure that should not be any issue if you have not done something very strange with your hard drive :)
    To be clear, you can encounter some DD10 issues but it will not related to PM.

    :doubt: Eh, I see what you mean, Detox.

    OK, Tabvla, I thought that was a nifty reference to provide you with but it didn't work out.

    I simply did a search on the words partition magic in the Acronis Disk Director Suite forum.

    I use PM8 and ADD10 alongside each other. Sometimes one does not correctly see or validate partitions created by the other but I can't be more specific than that for you. So far, I continue using them together because I've always been able to get around or back out of any issues.

    Michel Merlin recently posted something similar here: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=757584&postcount=13

    Thanks for the feedback.

    The link provided by crofttk to the comments by Michel Merlin were particularly relevant.

    If I do decide to go for ADD10 then I will probably retire PM8 and settle on an integrated solution from Acronis.

    As a comment....

    The original PM8 as created by PowerQuest has been an outstanding product that I have used without a single problem for several years. In all that time I have not raised one support call or had to post a single question on any forum. The acquisition of PowerQuest by Symantec was a very sad day for all the customers of PowerQuest. Symantec is not renowned for robust software nor a customer centered Support, hence another excellent product bites the dust... :'(
