Default Resizing partitions with Partitionmagic

Hi all,

Just after some advice. I have 3 partitions + some unallocated space.

In partition magic it shows my 3 partitions adjacent to eachother with the final partition (lets call it partition 3) next to the unallocated space.

I want to give all the unallocated space to the partition in the middle (partition 2). So I went to resize partition on the menu and selected partition 2 and went through the wizard, increased the size etc....

After clicking okay and looking at the operations pending items bit it said it was going to:

1. "move partition 3 up by the amount I wanted to give to partition 2 resize partition 2 with the amount I wanted to increase it by.

My question is that is this the correct way of doing this? Should I perhaps reszie the partition 3 to the max then give this free space to partition 2?

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Be REALLY carefull when using partition magic for resizing partitions, I have heard of nothing but bad things with regards lockups and data loss.
Have a look around for a diiferent product. I really wouldn take the risk.
