moderated partition managers?


Gene Warner
 

Hi!

I need to do some work with hard drive partitions. Does anyone know of one that is accessible through JAWS?

Thanks!

Have you tried windows disk management?
If you tap the windows key and type in disk, either it will be the first
choice, or you can down arrow to it.

Hi Gene,
 
Partition Assistant is a good one to go with.  Below are a couple of emails talking about it.
 
From: "David Ferrin" <
owner@...>
I had to go to the jaws cursor some but only to select the drive I wanted to
modify. After that everything was in tab order and behaved nicely. It might
be a good idea for me to write up some instructions. The fact is the program
works where partition magic failed me in a couple of places.

Hi David and all.
Same here. You need to use the JAWS cursor. They say you need to select
the disk or drive. Actually right clicking is enough to bring up a
context menu containing items to do with the disk or partition. I'm
thinking we could all give feedback to the developers and request they
incorporate standard list view controls or whatever, just so that we
don't have to use the JAWS cursor. But I'm thinking if we have to use
the JAWS cursor in other applications, what's the point. What do you
think listers? Should we request improved accessibility to the
developers or leave it as it is.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hi Glenn / Lenny!

I know of Windows Disk Management and use it whenever I can, but it is rather anemic in what it can do, for example it cannot copy or move partitions and that is what I need to do. But thanks for the suggestion anyway!

Hi Mike!

The last time I tried to use that program I found it rather confusing, but that was several years ago, hopefully things have improved since then so I'll try it again. I still lament the loss of Partition Magic, it is in my humble opinion the best partition management software ever written. It and several other programs I can think of that were acquired and then buried by Norton/Symantech and is the primary reason, among others, why I will not buy anything from them.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Diskpart is very good, I am not sure whether it will copy/move
partitions, but its nice and very accessible since its command line
and has lots of help.

Hi John!

I agree that diskpart is very good, I use it for things that disk management can't do, but it is almost just as anemic as disk management is in some areas, copying or moving partitions in particular, and that is what I need to do or I'd use either one of Microsoft's tools.

Thanks!

Although I've used the CLI version, I feel more comfortable using the GUI
version.

For copying a partition, I find the DD command in Linux the easiest.

Maybe so, but my only experience with Unix/Linux was in the late 80s when my uncle gave me an AT&T Unix PC. That was a great machine and it ran full Unix, but I haven't touched Unix/Linux since then...

If by Partition Assistant you mean Aomei Partition Assistant, I tried that program and found the current version totally unusable. On top of that, the free version will not transfer partitions that contain an operating system. I ended up using Macrorit Partition Expert and got help from Aira to use it.
