    Not yet. It needs a test Pc that i don,t have.
    I tried partition with their Hard Disk manager in the past and the results were was same as with GParted. They don,t seem to play nice as the animated scrolling bar on start of windows after partition used to scrol fewer times than before partitioning and there was a bit longer time taken by login welcome screen- though total time was almost same as scrolling bar took less time-- but all that shows that they can,t partition live OS disk properly. A similar experience after restore with Paragon Exact Image.Also in all these cases whenever I reboot my laptop, there was a dotted box around My Notebook( I have changed the name of icon my computer to my notebook).
    It never disappeared until I repartitioned My HD with XP. It was very little thing but another indication that these software were not so perfect in partitioning.
    U can see the pic here

    BTW I tried BING in the past and partitioning with it was really nice. No issues at all. I partiotiond live OS( XP) without even minor issues. Don,t know however about Partition Magic but as I read it seems to be the best in this regard.
    Anyway i am downloading it and may try later but I don,t think results will be good.

    It might be interesting to try driver genius. It could be useful. I'll have to see if I can get any feedback about them anywhere. Thanks for the links!
