I bought this a while back and I don't exactly use it regularly, but whenever I do need it it never lets me down.

This time I was updating from Snow Leopard to Lion. Firstly it turned out my system disk used the older Apple partition scheme rather than GUID, which iPartition allowed me to change without deleting all the partitions (unlike Disk Utility), and then that it didn't have an EFI System Partition, which I created using iPartition.

It took a bit of time, but hey that's how it goes when you're moving sizable partitions around, but I finally managed to upgrade to Lion, and it's thanks to iPartition.

@ B. Jefferson Le Blanc: Sorry, only just seen your post! It's a good question, and I'm not 100% but I'm guessing it was something to do with this: I was running Snow Leopard on my Intel iMac and using Time Machine as a backup. Then my iMac's internal drive completely failed, wouldn't even spin up. So using Time Machine I restored to another external drive so that now my iMac is essentially a dumb terminal; my system drive is a FW drive and my Time Machine drive is another. And this is how my system was when I upgraded tried to update to Lion; I'm guessing at some point during the whole process the system drive was formatted as an APM partition and because it was a restore rather than a fresh install or upgrade it worked. That's all I can really say apart from what I said before!

Well I'm going to avoid any moral views on keyloggers, but I have just noticed this on the Perfect Keylogger website:

Attention: Aobo Keylogger

Aobo Keylogger for Mac (now widely spread in the web) is a Chinese clone of our product. It looks very similar on the screenshots, but we are not associated with that product in any way, and aren't responsible for its quality. Keep in mind, that our keylogger is completely another product. Choose genuine software!

Have just given this another go after trying a long time ago when I was demo'ing different archiving software. It's very good but two things would make it perfect:

1) A contextual menu plugin, so you can extract archives etc all via right click. Another mac archiver, Springy, has this but I prefer BetterZip's GUI.

2) When you open a file from within an archive, edit it and save it, BetterZip should recognise this and give you the option of saving the archive with the edited file. This is pretty standard practice in most archiving software I have used. As it is you have to extract the file, edit it, then manually re-save it into the archive, which is a bit fiddly.
