Having played with an earlier version of PM a few years back, and finding that easy enough to figure out after 3 hours of shuffling the drive around like cards. I didn't realise that it action what I told it to, step by step verbatim. I had assumed, in my ignorance, that it just looked at the 'before' layout, and then the 'after' layout and find the shortest 'shift' between the two. So, 3 hours of setting up what became a 146 step process, and then told it to go ahead! It was easier to just stop it half way, wipe the lot and re-image it all back.

So it was with some mental cracking of the knuckles I tackled this latest incarnation of the premiere drive-structure alteration utility. After a fairly quick and uneventful install, it was ready to run, no reboot required. This, is seems is not such a rarity, but I'll get to that later.

It looks like a standard WinXP-style window, with a dynamic list of available options down the left side, and a brilliant, easy to grasp visual representation of the available drives and partitions. The entire system can be driven by intuitive wizards, with only a basic understanding of drive structure required to prevent some acts of sheer stupidity.

I have 3 drives in the test machine, a 5gig C:/F: drive, a 32gig D: drive and a 5gig E:/G: drive... so I basically played a HDD version of the Shells & Pea game. shuffle shuffle shuffle.

This new version was so easy to use, and required only 2 reboots! Most of the alterations were accomplished with just some artificial manipulation of the File Allocation Table in realtime, and away we went, on the fly.

Overall, I found this to be utterly brilliant! However, with a $130 pricetag, this is something you will either have to use a fair bit, or it becomes something a bit excessive. However, for those who set up networks, this will be a great tool for you. Use a disc-image system, such as Norton Ghost then run PM over the system to customise and fine-tune the drive allocations for each system's primary tasks. Should be a lot more efficient and smooth-flowing than fresh-installs for every machine. Another great tool for the carrycase!

This is my first try in creating a photoshop Filter. I choose this old demoeffect because it's nice and easy to implement. I know that it is slow, extremely unintuitive and probably not very useful. Hopefully somebody has ... more...
