FWB Software Inc.
has released Partition Toolkit 1.0, a new utility designed for “Classic” Mac OS versions that enables Mac users to resize their drive partitions “on the fly.”

The software works with already formatted Macintosh volumes to non-destructively make them smaller, and then use the new free space to create an extra volume. It supports HFS, HFS+, MS-DOS and LinuxPPC partition formats.
FWB director of product development Marko Kostyrko explained that normally, users have to back up their data and reformat the drive before they can create new partition spaces. “Partition Toolkit was created to automate the procedure of resizing and creating new volumes on the fly without the need to move your data to a temporary storage,” he said.
Partition Toolkit 1.0 carries a suggested retail price of US$24.95. System requirements call for a PowerPC G3 or better, Mac OS 8.6 – 9.x, 16MB RAM, and SCSI or IDE hard disk drive.
