    Not sure what you mean. It has nothing to do with Windows; you boot from it, Windows is not running. For a list of supported filesystems etc., see their website.

    Also, W7 already comes with its own partitioning tool, including resize.

    As a side note, in case you want to try EASEUS, you have a couple of hours to grab the latest Professional v5 for free. (Note: this utility doesn't support anything but Windows filesystems (FAT, FAT32, NTFS).

    Another very good utility,there's often free promotions for the Pro version knocking about.

    That's what I use. I have it my my flash too, and it works great. All the features seem to work on the portable version, including resizing locked partitions that require a restart.

    It's the same features as described on their homepage. Once again, Windows filesystems only (all versions have this limitation), plus professional version doesn't work on server Windows versions.
