Re: Disk partitioning software that is accessible using JAWS

I was using an older partition magic which is why it didn't work. As for partitioning drives while blind, it is a risky business without someone there to make sure you don't do anything wrong. Redefining partition sizes can render your data useless after copying it or imaging it over. Not to knock who's doing it, I wouldn't recommend playing with such powerful tools because this is dangerous for obvious reasons.

John Martin,

Not sure where you're getting your validation or your approach to answering
questions. I've used Norton Partition Magic just fine with no sighted help
and JAWS. I've also used the more archaic MS partitioning application by
launching diskpart in the run dialog with the /help parameter to get a list
of the commands and parameters.

Both worked just fine when I partitioned my 2 Tb drive.

Uh, hi.
My wife laughed so hard when I told her how crazy it is you are playing with
partitioning software, but I felt I had to answer. I know that the windows
disk management is semi accessible. Partition magic isn't going to help much
because I've tried it. You are probably going to need some help with this
one dude. Blind people aren't meant to play partition games with other
reindeer. I don't mean to be rudolph but that is just insane. Write back if
you find anything. lol

Subject: Disk partitioning software that is accessible using JAWS


Hello Everyone:

As I have mentioned before, I purchased 2 new SATA internal hard drives, 2
TB capacity.

I used an disk image program called Image for Windows, which is very
accessible using JAWS, to create an image of my existing aging 160 GB IDE
drive.

I intend to use Image for Windows, to restore the disk image to one of the
2
TB drives.

However, when I have done that, there will be an unallocated partition
containing the remaining available free space for that drive.

What disk partitioning software can I use, that is accessible using JAWS,
to
resize the newly created partition and create, allocate  and format the
remaining extended partition for that drive?

Thanks in anticipation.

Cave Durber
