I have tried the software called partition Logic. This does support NTFS the only issue is that it will try and fornmat the disk of the partition points that are being moved.

How are you wanting it to be partitioned for the future. What sort of chunks are we looking at. Will the disk partition that you want to split fit on the other partition of the same drive.

The Disk type is 07 for NTFS. Even if you create it with FAT32 it is not a problem as you just convert it to NTFS when Windows is loaded. Using dos i think the command is
CONVERT #: /fs:ntfs ( # is the drive letter to convert.)

Hi,
problem solved. used Gparted liveCD and formated it into ntfs, then made 3 partitions for now. Worked grate and in a bout a fifth of the time PMagic needed. PM now recognises my partition again like it should do. Just to answer your questions:

1) I needed 2 partitions anyway (the ones i had, but needed to be able to create more than those for later use - wasnt able before)

2) Not sure what you meant with chunks...

3)

Will the disk partition that you want to split fit on the other partition of the same drive.

Not sure what you meant with that.

Thanks for all your suggestions and help guys.
