surfmonkey Posted May 5, 2004 Share Posted May 5, 2004 Mac newbie and long time Partiton Magic user here with a question about partitioning in OSX. The online help says that the only way to partition a hard drive is to use the start up disk, which will re-format? or a least erase your hard drive when it re-partitions? Is that correct? Does that also mean that you are then locked into those partitions (i.e. sizes) unless you want to reformat your entire drive again? On a side note, does anyone recommend any books to help a dope like me become more familiar with OSX? The info that came with my computer is rather light, and I just hate trekking through help files. I have no homepage. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
