    About to install 2 new disks and ran the seagate CD to install. I've got 3
    partitions on existing disk and want to resize on new drive. It has been a
    few years since using install CD , but I was expecting an option like so:
    1. copy existing drive to new drive ?
    YES
    2. resize partitons ?
    Yes . And HERE I wanted to select new sizes since 2 of the 3 I'd like
    SMALLER to allow more space to third. It doesn't have that interface any
    longer. Now it only asks " keeping old drive ?" and shows to
    uninstall/move cable etc.

    So I loaded a few versions of Ghost and can only copy each partition, then
    reboot.
    I'll have to do it in steps, but am I mistaken ... didn't install CD's
    USED give you the option to resize ?
    I'm downloading DiscWizard from Seagate to see if the online version is
    any different than mine.

    The downloaded version of Discwizard gave me that option. Worked fine.
