Partition Logic is a free hard disk partitioning and data management tool. It can create, delete, format, and move partitions and modify their attributes. It can copy entire hard disks from one to another.

Partition Logic is free software, based on the Visopsys operating system. It boots from a CD or floppy disk and runs as a standalone system, independent of your regular operating system.

Partition Logic is intended to become a free alternative to such commercial programs as Partition Magic, Drive Image, and Norton Ghost...

Partition logic supports most of the basic PC hardware without any additional work or configuration. It has very modest (by today's standards) requirements:

Pentium-class x86 processor
32 megabytes RAM memory (16 megabytes in text mode)
IDE (ATA) hard disks for partitioning.
IDE (ATAPI) CD-ROM drive, if booting from the CD version.
Standard PC floppy disk, if booting from the floppy disk version.
For graphics mode, a VESA 2-compatible graphics card with linear framebuffer support.
PS/2-style mouse, in graphics mode

Partition logic does not currently support the following:

Partitioning of SCSI hard disks
Non MS-DOS/MBR-style partition tables (i.e. Sun, BSD, EFI/GPT)
Formatting non-FAT filesystems.
Filesystem resizing.
Serial mice, in graphics mode
Keyboard layouts other than UK English and US English

What's New in This Release:
This is a maintenance release with extensive code grooming and bugfixes.
A number of new, user-visible features were included, such as right-click context menus on the disk list and partition diagram/list, and 32-bit bitmap image/icon support.
The real focus of this release has been stability, quality, and large scale re-engineering of the graphical interface code.
