@coriolissystems iPartition makes partition management on OS X a happy dream.

It does only what you expect.

If you have worked with OS X’s Disk Utility enough you know how unpredictable it can be. I don’t know why it is that way, but you do have to be careful and thoughtful even if you are in iPartition. I suppose that it has to do with the OS and neither of the tools.

I just know that iPartition makes it trivially easy to resize and recreate partitions and on OS X 10.11 it is impossible to do so with Disk Utility!

Set up your waxing station with your Atsko beeswax, strips, boots, and heat source. I used a hair dryer. Wish that I had done this with every pair of boots that I’d ever owned!

Reminds me, ought to do this for my sandals, too.
