Setting the Partition Sizes

If you wish to resize your partitions or select which partitions are to be copied, click Back on the current page and repeat the steps in Specifying the Target Disk. This time, click the Let me resize disk partitions and/or select which partitions to copy check box.

1. Select to edit the target partition size.

This page appears if your target partitions are not large enough to receive the data from the corresponding source partitions.

If you do not see this page, skip to step 2.

Click Yes to edit the partition size.

Click No not to edit the partition size.

Note: If you select No, all the data from your source partitions is not copied to the target partitions.

Click Cancel to return to the previous page. This allows you to select a different target disk. Return to the previous section, Specifying the Target Disk.

2. Edit the partition size, or select the partitions to copy.

When the source disk is identified, the P2V Assistant analyzes the volumes (or partitions) on the source disk to identify the partitions that are formatted for Windows. Volumes that are not formatted for Windows are created as unformatted volumes on the target disk.

When the target disk is identified, the P2V Assistant compares the space available on the target disk with the data required per partition on the source disk. If there is not enough space on the target disk to fit all the data in each Windows-formatted partition, the P2V Assistant displays this panel.

Source to Target Partition Data Allocation

Each row lists the data for a single partition. The Used MB column identifies the amount of space required for the data on that partition of the source disk. The Total MB column indicates the total amount of space available to that partition of the source disk. The New Total MB column indicates the space that is allocated to that partition on the target disk. The Copy column indicates whether the partition is created on the target disk. Red values indicate that the allocated space is insufficient for the data to be copied. Red and blue values can be edited.

a. Type directly into the fields to change the values.

If a value in a row is changed, the difference is added or removed from the row directly below it. If the row directly below it does not have sufficient MBytes available, the change is not allowed. "Borrowing" (similar to a simple subtraction carryover) is allowed only from the row immediately below. If you want to distribute available MBytes, start from the bottom row and work your way up the table.
