    Partition Magic doesn't work in Windows 8.

    Partition Assistant, Partition Wizard and Easeus Partition Master work well in Windows 8 and 8.1. All of them have free edition.

    They all have their own advantages, for example, Easeus Partition Master has a long history and is easy-to-use.

    which one is ok for you, it depends upon your needs.

    How do you want to recreate partitions?

    Interesting reading.

    I want to partition my HD but I'm afraid of suffering data loss, and particularly scared to need a fresh reinstall since my laptop came with no installation disks and I can't still find where the OS could be in the eventuality of needed to be restored.

    Partitioning your hard drive is really not that complicated, and if you are concerned with losing data you can just make a copy of the files you know you want to keep on an external drive, or even on a dvd if you have a burner drive installed.

    Also, making a backup of your operating system is not that hard as well. There is even a tool within Windows you can use to accomplish this.

    I already saw the tool, but data loss scares me, however I don't know how I didn't came across with doing a data backup.

    Yes, this is probably the best solution just in case something fails while re-partitioning :)

    It is always good to be cautious, but once you create the partition you will see there really isn't much to worry about.
