Super Fdisk Utility
Super Fdisk is a driven disk partitioning utility.
With Super Fdisk you can:
- Create primary, extended and logical partitions
- Delete primary, extended and logical partitions
- Format FAT partitions
- Backup or Restore the MBR, Partition Table, Boot sector
- Hide and unhide FAT, NTFS/HPFS, EXT2, EXT3, SWAP partitions
- Activate/deactivate a partition
- Show the partition table
- Show characteristics of harddisk
- Erase MBR for a harddisk
- and more...
Flexible and Comfortable Graphics User Interface.
Super Fdisk supports all partition types. The original Fdisk
program doesn't allow you to create more than one primary
partition. Super Fdisk does, therefore it's a powerful tool
for creating any combinations of partitions. This can be
extremely useful for system administrators and OS deployment.
*** Notes for Using And Running ***
You'd better run Super Fdisk under pure MS DOS environment,
because partition operations are independent of operating systems and they are
very 'low level', some functions such as 'Create Partition', 'Format
Partition', 'Delete and Secure Erase' can only run under pure MS DOS
Of course, you can run Super Fdisk under the MS DOS prompted
window in WINDOWS 9x or WINDOWS ME. To execute Super Fdisk,
just type 'sdisk' at MS DOS command prompt or double click
sdisk.exe by mouse in the path of Super Fdisk. Also you
can use mouse to choose 'Create Emergency Disk' from 'General' menu
to run Super Fdisk under pure MS DOS environment.
When restore partition table to harddisk, the master boot sector will
be overwritten. So you need 'Disable' the 'Anti Virus' option in BIOS
When running, the partitions circumstantiality will be displayed
using chart and tables. The cylinder diagram on the top displays
the positions of all the allocated partitions.
The type and other detail parameters of partitions are listed in
a table on the middle of screen. About the meanings of these parameters,
please refer to 'About Partition Table' in Help files.
Before operating on a partition you must select it first. To select
a partition, just click the partition in the diagram or in the
table. And also you can use Up or Down key to select.
In order to prevent mistakes, all operations except 'Create Partition',
'Format Partition', 'Delete Partition' are not written to harddisk
immediately. They are saved in memory buffer instead.
While completed and there is no error, you can send out an 'apply'
command by CtrL+S key or select 'Save' on menu 'General'.
Then Super Fdisk will write all your operations to harddisk one-off.
