    having been a member much longer than yourself i feel i have established basic communication with the forum, if you cared to have another gander, you will see that i posted in the forum sub category entitled "problems", I did so, as I have always done so. If your not going to reply with something constructive and helpful dont bother, this is highly immature, and if it was imperative to yourself that it was moved why not be more polite about it instead of implying im stupid

    Take a look right above this post. What does it say?
    i find that derogatory, and very sarcastic, however im consolidated very much so in that "sarcasm is the lowest form of wit"

    having said that are there any ideas relating to the problem at hand?

    sorry i cant help u mate..except i used partiton magic 8 a while ago to partition a drive and i had hell a job with it.I never had any errors with the actual setting up....with me it kept saying the process was complete,but when rebooted nothing had changed,no new partiton.So after a few scandisk etc about the third atempt it done the job.But before i tried partition magic i had a go trought disk management in windows admin tools.I never had much luck partitioning my drive, but i manage converting the file system over..but if u havnt all ready tried it..u never know.

    I thought these type of probs were right up Balamm street aswell.. No idea ballam?

    Lots of them CosmoK but I don't care much for sharing what will likely be ignored anyway. Wrong forum, wrong gui, there's not much I can do for some people. Especially ones with that kind of attitude towards constructive advice.
    Hell, paying customers aren't even half that rude.

    as I have already said any ideas relating to the problem are more than welcome

    Wrong forum
    well, this forum has helped solve many of my problems, so im asssuming that it will do me well on this particular issue also

    wrong gui
    windows xp interface, i can only assume thats what you mean Balamm, i dont understand why gui is an issue


    there's not much I can do for some people. Especially ones with that kind of attitude towards constructive advice.
    I never recieved any constructive advice at all from yourself Balamm, you were abruptly sarcastic, you were not particularly friendly at all in my opinion. Its not the moving of the topic that was of any annoyance to me, it was more the fashion in which it was carried out.

    Hell, paying customers aren't even half that rude.
    I dont think i was rude at all, if thats what your feelings toward the post are then my appologies, it was an opinion on how you treated the topic.


    more over you say now you have many ideas, ok, why not include one in your original post, why just take it upon yourself to move it and pass, in my opinion, what is a rude comment.....all this having been said im still looking for some more advice

    CosmoK mate, i will try this, and see what comes about thanks
