    Moving applications from one drive to another

    I've just got Partition Magic to partition my enormous new drive into more handleable chunks. Didn't there used to be a utility called Magic Mover that came with it, that enabled you to easily move apps out of the first partition onto drive D or wherever? It doesn't seem to be included with version 6. What else is there available to do something like that?

    At <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.powerquest.com/partitionmagic/>the PM site</A> they do make reference to:

    DriveMapper utility - Easily move applications between partitions and automatically update the drive-letter references after partitioning.

    Is that what you're after?

    Well, I'm hoping so but there's no specifics in the manual.

    I may well be wasting your time - if so I apologise before you wart me! - but would IMSI's windelete help you? I've never used it but there's a tool within it called 'move application' which seems to indicate it can do what you want.

    Hey, all suggestions are most welcome. Do you have an URL for that?

    Hmm,

    try <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.imsisoft.com/>http://www.imsisoft.com/</A>

    however, searching the site for "windelete" produces worrying results.

    Also: don't do a google search on "imsi windelete" and look at the second item down!

    however, you might get a more balanced view here:

    http://www.zdnet.co.uk/pcdir/content/1999/...e/uninstallers/ imsi.html

    and if all that fails, I can post you a cover disc with version 3 on it!

    In the light of that article it looks as though <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.mcafee.com/myapps/muo/default.asp?>McAffee Installer Online</A> is the way to go. Thanks for pointing me there. <img src=/S/bow.gif border=0 alt=bow width=15 height=15>

    Re: Moving applications from one drive to another

    Of course I had to look at Google, but my search showed up ZDNet as the 2nd result. A quick look on the first page showed nothing suspicious. Not interested enough to dig further so will let sleeping dogs lie (now that's another possible Smillie!) ...and, no, don't tell me I'm sure I don't want to know.

    Re: Moving applications from one drive to another

    A great utility that I have used (though not free) when upgrading disks is Norton Ghost. It will allow you to move the complete contents of one drive onto another, as I did when I went from a 10 to a 20Gig disk. You can copy multiple partitions, changing their relative sizes if you want and it works for all Windows operating systems and probably some others as well. It does many other things as well but I just use it for copying to larger disks.

    Re: Moving applications from one drive to another

    Hi
    If it's just one app, why not just Copy it (first)? Then Run it from the new place. If there's any problem (can't find ***.dll, or whatever) find that and move that as well, or edit the Registry. Apps are usually well documented therein.
    I've done this many times, but I suppose it will depend on the program itself.

    Hi Eileen:

    I haven't used this app, but I trust stuff from Neil J. Rubenking of PC Magazine. You can read about & download it at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.zdnet.com/downloads/stories/info/0,,000OD7,.html>http://www.zdnet.com/downloads/stori...,,000OD7,.html</A>

    That looks perfect but it is dated Jan 1997. Do you think it'll work OK for Windows ME?
