I'd recommend trying to find other programs since Symantec's Partition Magic not only works much slower, but also can seriously screw up your data (which happened in my case). At least try to make some backups (on external HDDs, DVDs or on a cloud, not on the same disk that you're about to start working on) before giving this a go.

MiniTool Partition Wizard (Pro Edition 7.5.0.1) can be a nice alternative, I think. At least it worked much easier and faster in my case.
