Pros: The UI has been arranged and designed in a way to provide ease-of-use and make sure all the features and tools are accessible at the click of a button.

The application comes with the ability to perform many disk and partition operations. You can format your partition to a new file system and change cluster size of it. You can create new partitions, change its label, and assign it a drive letter. Another feature I like is the ability to extend and existing partition by taking some free space from other partition on the same disk.

You can move/resize your partitions between different disk drives. The tool also comes with the ability to merge two partitions together, safely without any loss of data. Large partitions can be split in to two or more partitions too. Partitions can be copied to other drives too easily.

There is a special wizard to help users migrate their OS safely from one drive to another (HDD to SSD or vice versa). This is especially useful when you upgrade your hardware and want to move OS to the new drive.

Many more features including a surface test option, that checks surface of the partition and identify if it has got any bad sectors.

Queues commands, and does not execute them until you're sure and press 'Apply' button.

Wizard-based features make the tool suitable to use for even the novices.

Comes with different wiping methods like, Fill with zero, Fill sectors with one, Fill sectors with zero and one, DoD 5220.22- M (3 passes), and DoD 5220.28- STD.

Cons: The user interface looks cluttered and is not a pleasing experience for the eyes. This can make it look overwhelming to the novice users, as the UI is packed with a lot of features and tools.

Overall: MiniTool Partition Wizard is a reliable and efficient software application, with a lot of tools which allows you to perform many operations with the disks and partitions. It works great and runs smoothly without any errors and crashes. The ability to queue tasks and running them only when 'Apply' button is clicked, keeps you on the safe side in case when you delete important partitions by mistake or do something you are not sure about. It is a tool definitely worth having in your tool box.

Pros: My favorite feature is that you can make a bootable version, and edit partitions so that multiple operating systems can be installed on the same PC. I also like the OS migration from sata to ssd feature on the version.

Cons: The first major issue that I have is that if you are not VERY careful you can destroy data (I almost lost a job), so when you are using this tool, make notes and have a routine that you follow or you could really mess up. Also you have to purchase the professional license to recover partitions, and I did not know this until I told a fried to download PW that it would do what he needed it too, and he informed me that the free version did not.

Overall: With the migrate OS to SSD feature on the new version, it has saved me untold hours of work. I am very thankful for Partition Wizard.

Cons: While the interface is easy to work with, it feels a little dated.

Overall: Working in a government agency, file and disk management is critical in order to preserve public records properly. MiniTool Partition Wizard has saved us on multiple occasions when a server threatened to crash due to low disk space.

Pros: Nice interface that makes very easy to partition your hard drive.

Has more features like migrate your os, clone a disk, copy a partition, do a surface test that will check every sector of your harddrive in order to know if something is bad.

You can create a boot CD/USB.

The free version is very good but it doesn't work with Windows Servers, for more information about the limitations between versions go to here:

Cons: Windows Server is not support it on the free version, so you should buy it if these are your intentions.

Overall: highly recomended!

Pros: The price is great for the feature set. This tool allowed us to convert our primary partition on out Windows Server based VMs to a 16K block size without having to reinstall the OS. This saved us 100s of hours of work in migrating to our new storage platform that needed the 16k block size. This tool works pretty quickly but that also depends on your hardware.

The user interface is good and pretty intuitive.

Cons: This product seemed a little gimmicky at first...almost like a new product trying to start out. Once I actually tried it, all of those feelings went away.

Pros: I like it, because it is a program that allows you to expand and reduce partitions without formatting or having to lose data from your computer, it also offers a series of recovery tools for damaged partitions and has a copy and partition wizard securing the information in them.

Cons: What I do not like is that the free version, although it is a complete disk partitioning tool, has some limitations with respect to the paid versions, but if we do not have a series of advanced needs with the free version we will have more than enough.

Overall: It helps me recover damaged partitions.

Pros: I can do more things that only partition my hardis, I can use the copy wizard to create a backup of all my files, I can also use the partition recovery, to keep my information save in case of an infection or a human mistake, and I course I can easily create how many partitions I need of my harddisk.

Cons: This is an excellent app, I do not have any complain, because in the past this process was very annoying and difficult to do, but with this app I can do easily and in a few minutes.

Overall: The best partition tool in the market.

Pros: Everything-

Cons: Not tested on SSD.

Overall: It's rare that I don't have to change HDDs in my PC every 2 years (because of HDD failures or to increase capacity). Also, as "old school" user, I'm always looking to make some aceptable combination of speed and sector lenghts. Using some old types of solution (FDISC or similar) today is ouf of question so I was looking to find something new for old problem. And this software was a good solution. with user friendly interface, simple procedures and everything else. I tried and I decided, and this piece of software is on my 3rd version of Windows.

Also, some HDDs were changed from the time of 1st instalation. But MINITOOL is always there to solve problems when it's needed.
