ERROR 702 Running under Windows 2000 using the GUI version of the product, not the floppy disk version.
Once upon a time there was unallocated space in an extended partition. I tried to format this space as a logical partition using FAT32 but instead suffered an Error 702. There is nothing on the Symantec web site about an Error 702. Nowhere. Nohow. If you can sell the product without documenting the errors it generates, then why bother documenting the errors.
I shut down Partition Magic and restarted it. The partition in question had recieved a drive letter, not the one I asked for it, and showed up as unformatted. I deleted the partition and tried again.
This time I let it be assigned the default drive letter, the first time I told Partition Magic to use a higher letter in the alphabet. Also, this time I used a partition name that was short and only consisted of letters. The first time, there was an underscore in the partition name. It worked.
I then used Windows to re-assign the drive letter to the one I wanted.
