Storage Manager
Based on original Windows CE Storage Manager.
Install CAB file and go to Settings->System->Storage Manager

This program allow you to manage your stores and partitions.
You can format and dismount store.
You can create new/delete/mount/dismount partitions in store.

If your partition have FAT file system, you can also format, run scandisk and defragmentator.
On format tool you can select cluster size.
Scandisk can find errors in your SD, CF card.
I didn't test it, because all my attempts to create a lost clusters on SD 32mb failed
If someone know how/can test it, please do it.
Defragementator is very slow, but it works, at least on my 32 mb SD card.
I try to defragment 1 Gb SD and wait during a hour, but it didn't finish it.

I don't recommend to do experiments with your system stores and partitions.

You can create several partitions on your SD, CF card and it works!
I create a four partitions on my SD 32mb card and it works!
I have SD Card, SD Card2, SD Card3 and SD Card4 now.

You should careful use this tool.

YO DUDE!!!!

This app ROCKS!!!!

Been having so much trouble with my 4gb SD (infact two 4gb SD cards, both would go corrupt if I loaded more than 2gb on them), but I tried your app, and now I have two 2gb partitions (well 1.95gb actually, but it'll do me nicely!!).

Finally, I can now watch the rest of heroes at work!!!

LOL

Thanks again

is it safe to instal and run on HTC Tornado?
it safe.
but you *should* understand your actions very well.
(Don't press "Format" buttton for example)

do you test it well?
try to fill both partitions by files and check it.
You should be sure that it works, otherwise you can have problems in future.

Yeah, have been testing the integrity of the partitions and the first one is fine, but the second one is still being silly, and Im still getting corrupt files on the 2nd one.

Not really sure what to do now!!!

:eek:(

Might try and create 3 partions, one 2gb, and two 1gb ones. Lets see what happens then!!

Ok, just tried the 3 partition idea and.......it didn't work!!!

Was unable to create a third, so instead I have one 2gb and one 1.5 gb, as the cards total capacity is supposed to be 3.98 gb, but I thought I'd reduce it a little (Im sure I won't miss 400mb).

So just testing the second partition now, will report back with results.....

oh...
I think, driver can't translate large offsets.
my pocket (Dell x51v) already have SDHC driver, isn't it?
I can try to extract it using my ROM Extractor, correct relocations and send to you for testing.
Possible it will work, so wait.

Great utility. Just what I need.

But I'm trying to run it on my 2GB card and it stops about half-way through. Any idea? Before it stopped it recovered about a dozen files (xxxxxx.chk). I've tried re-running it but it always halts at the same point
