FFR can also recover data after a format, fdisk
or virus attack.
Prior to the agreement, Linux users would have to go through a complex and time-consuming process that involved backing up the entire hard drive, reformatting the drive, repartitioning the drive with FDISK
, restoring the backup and then installing Linux and LILO or boot manager.
With DriveCopy, users no longer need to back up, format, FDISK
, reinstall and restore.
While partitions created with GDISK are indistinguishable from those created using FDISK
, GDISK gives better disk space utilization, reduces slack space, allows hidden partitions and offers other features not provided in FDISK
Before PartitionMagic, the usual way to resize partitions was through a time-consuming and complicated method using a utility called FDISK
, which also destroyed all data on the drive.
