:) I did use Partition mAgic 8 to resize the
PM8 resized the logical drive.Not the extended
partition.SO though I have "unused" space on my HD,
its locked away in the Extended Partition and not
detected by F-BSD.
Is it possible to resize the whole extended partition
Not a power-windows user, so havent used PM8 much. I
hope the people behind FreeBSD could fix this problem.
RedHat/other linux distros seem to use the free space
Also, does FreeBSD use FAT or ext2/3 partition? -just
