Hello,

Is anyone familiar with that application? I'm trying to resize the Boot Camp partition without having to reinstall Windows, and an article suggested some applications, one of which my friend has and I borrowed in order to use - it is Partition Manager 10 by Paragon.

He told me it was an ISO and he burnt it to a CD and gave it to me. I was able to successfully boot the application from it and then I'd see the user interface with the list of things it can do (restore, file transfer, etc.). The first choice is the one I want to use "Paragon Partition Manager" but when I choose it, it doesn't list any hard drives / partitions. I then tried choosing the "Restore Wizard" one and it said "NO HDD detected", which means something must be wrong.

How do I go about using it? Am I doing something wrong? I have refit installed and I chose the "CD" and it booted fine. Oh and when it boots into Partition Manager and the user interface shows up, there's a progress bar that I always let complete (don't know what it's for).

p.s. I have provided screen shots of what I am talking about which you can click to view.

Thank you.

Tarek:

I don't believe you can use Paragon Partition Manager from within a Boot Camp partition because as you know, Macs do not have a BIOS. Paragon Partition Manager is Windows only.

Purchase and download the Paragon CampTune utility instead as that has been designed specifically for Macs and is able to non-destructively resize Boot Camp partitions. $19.95 US

As chscag advises, Camptune at $19.95 from Paragon is the tool to use.

Have used it with good results, but make sure you print the manual.
