    From user experience, which of the well known Freeware Partition Management Programs do not cause issues when you resize (shrink) the System Partition in Windows XP, VISTA, 7?

    Examples:

    EASEUS Partition Master
    Paragon Partition Manager Express
    GParted
    Parted Logic
    Cute Partition Manager
    Ranish Partition Manager

    Thanks in Advance.

    Since I began using XP, I've never tinkered with drive/partition etc. I got Win 7 the other night and really wanted to try it out without losing my XP setup and with hopes of dual booting. I have quite a few image backups of XP and at first thought about just installing Win 7 by itself for testing but at the last minute I decided to use Gparted although I was doubtful that it would work for me, just been unlucky that way in the past. Anywho, it worked perfectly.

    I really like Gparted. If you have to do partitioning outside of windows in the recovery environment, then Gparted is a good one to use. It has all the necessary drivers on the boot disk for your hardware and a clean GUI with good flexibility.

    I used to be a Gparted fan but now then I found out about Partition Wizard and it has caused no problems at all on my Vista laptop
