Windows cluster size problem

By Ganvar ·
I went to run scandisk and defrag on my 18gig windows partition. It gaves me the good old out of memory error, which I knew was not the problem (defrag error: DEFRAG009). I checked out the error on microsoft's web site and it said something about a bad cluster size. I loaded up ranish partition manager,( and there it was. I had a 4k cluster size on a 18gig partiton. Now, the problem is I really don't want to wipe the data for the drive, but I don't have the 60 dollars to shell out for "Partition Magic." It would be of very much help if someone could tell me of a free program that I can use to change my cluster size. Any type of free program to change cluster size would be VERY appericated. Thanks for your time.

Go to site for PARTITION MAGIC and check the trial version that can be downloaded and see if the option is available.At the start up screen select the key to open the CMOS and go to the hard disk menu in the left pane and check the drives to see if they are set for large disk support,it might be done from here.Hope this helps
