comment Hard drive partitioning software for Windows
I tried the gparted LiveCD today. I used it to extend an NTFS partition on a Windows XP machine from about 50 GB to about 120 GB. Seemed to work okay, but on reboot Windows wanted to run chkdsk. No obvious data loss, but triggering chkdsk does concern me a little, unless there's a good explanation as to why that should happen.

Good point, although I often partition external drives or secondary drives that can be unmounted, repartitioned, and remounted without rebooting.
