What's the easiest way to do this? Partition Magic or use SuSE?
Have not used parted but have used PM and Acronis PE and much prefer the
latter. All Acronis products are very well done. I use their Image Server
almost daily. Beats Ghost all to heck, perfectly images anything, windows,
*NIX, mac perfectly, and you never have to boot into Dos.
Have even developed backup strategies with it to backup servers offsite to
an image 1/3 the size at 10 times the speed of windoze native backup.
Problem open files like SQL databases are also not a problem. Of course, if
it is a busy database, I suppose you could lose a transaction since it is
not touted as a database backup, but I have never had a problem.
