As on Windows 2008 the Partition Magic does not seems to work anymore, is there any other tool similar ?

By Windows 2008 do you mean Windows Server 2008 (R2)?? Can you clarify? –  studiohack Apr 26 '10 at 21:13

What do you wish to accomplish? Windows 2008 now has quite a built already built-in.

Fire up Server Manager, expand Storage and start Disk Management. You can shrink and grow volumes there just by right-clicking on them.

There are other partitioning programs. I've used partition commander. You can also use Linux live CDs as most of them have the gparted (GUI based) partitioning tool.

You can use Diskpart which ships with Windows 2008. There may be a possibility you may not be able to perform certain partitioning tasks within the Server 2008 running.

I would suggest boot the system with the Windows PE 2.0/3.0 disk. Then use Diskpart and you can create/delete/shrink/expand partitions etc. The only thing is that Diskpart is commandline.
