Repartition your hard drive without having to backup your data.

Overview

DiskStudio allows you to change the partitioning scheme of your hard drive without going through the trouble of completely erasing and reinitializing your hard drive. Features include:
  • Add new partitions to your hard drive.
  • Delete partitions previously created by Apple's Disk Utility or DiskStudio.
  • Erase and reformat existing partitions in a number of standard formats.
  • Completely erase and repartition an entire hard disk.
DiskStudio provides the tools you need to control how information is stored on your hard drive. For instance, you might use DiskStudio to repartition your hard drive to:
  • Install a new copy of Mac OS X, but keep your original copy intact.
  • Install a completely different operating system, such as Mac OS 9, on a new partition.
  • Create a partition to hold special projects, such as audio or video files.
  • Create a partition to hold scratch space for programs such as Adobe Photoshop.
An easy to use and non-destructive disk partitioner has been requested by more of our customers than any other type of utility. DiskStudio fills this important need for Mac OS X. With DiskStudio you will be able to quickly and easily change the way information is stored on your hard drives as your needs change over time. With DiskStudio you are in control.

DiskStudio allows you to create and remove disk partitions on the fly! Want to create a new partition for games or photos? No problem. Want to get rid of that old OS 9 partition without backing up and reformatting your drive? It's easy.

DiskStudio is a great tool. It's safe, fast and simpel to use. It's great to be able to change a partition or volume without losing all of your data. A program like this will usualy not be used a lot, but if you need it, you can trust it and you'll be ready in no time (which ofcourse depends on what you want :-) ). Great!

Very odd that they don't mention being able to shrink or grow existing partitions- just delete/add them. That's usually what "non-destructive partitioning tools" do. Skip this, buy iPartition (which CAN actually grow/shrink partitions) and save $6. OR, don't spend a penny and use a livecd that has gnu parted on it, and can handle more filesystem types.

You know, the last time I checked version 1.1.1 works just fine with a PPC. Why upgrade? The app costs $49 then they come out with an update by the way I never even knew they had updated it from 1.1.1 but now it's at 1.5.2? and they want $25 for it and they even say it is a minor update. Whos stealing here? Software companys don't want us to pirite their software but when they hit you up over and over again for no good reason, oh...greed I guess it is called...well, in that case I won't be doing it but I don't blame them that do. Take care of your customers not your selves. I for one will continue to make due with version 1.1.1. I guess Im just tired of everyone sucking me dry everytime I scratch my nose.

This thing screwed my whole 160gb drive! after i made the 2nd partition it began to be troublesome and within 3 days my disk wouldn't even mount. Even disk warrior couldn't repair it. I'm bringing to my friend's dad's computer store in a couple days, it better be okay >:(
