Editors' Review

AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition lets you manage your hard drives with ease, regardless of your prior experience and, if you know your way around, advanced features like file system converters are at your fingertips. Alternatively, you can choose to be walked through several common operations with the help of step-by-step wizards.

Pros

Eight wizards: Despite its advanced nature, AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition comes with eight step-by-step wizards that will walk you through a few common disk operations. Some of the options include making a copy of your disk, extending a partition, creating a Windows To Go disk, and a partition recovery wizard.

Disk copy: The app offers the ultimate backup method -- cloning one drive, so it has the exact same data as another one, down to the very last bit. There is even an option to copy the information in the sectors where there is no visible data -- a great way to save files from a dying or corrupted hard drive.

Windows To Go creator: We were very impressed with the fact that you can create Windows To Go installations with the app; Windows To Go essentially allows you to boot Windows installed on a thumb drive from any PC. Note that at least a 16GB thumb drive is required for this operation.

Cons

Cannot queue operations: Each operation needs to be completed before you can begin the next one. The rule applies even if the two operations are carried out on two separate disks.

Buggy MBR to GPT converter: When we tested the MBR to GPT converter on a thumb drive with no partitions, we discovered a bug where the app won't recognize the converted thumb drive, even though the Windows Disk Manager and later My Computer do. We were able to fix the issue by repartitioning the thumb drive using Disk Utility on Mac OS X.

Bottom Line

Have you just bought a new hard drive for your PC and are looking for the most painless way to migrate your Windows installation and all of your personal data? AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition is well-suited to handle your case as well as numerous others.

"Excellent for migration SSD to SSD"

August 13, 2015  |  By LeironG

 |  Version: AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition 5.6.4

Pros

+ Handled migration of whole content on old SSD to new SSD
+ Managed to "merge" (actually expand, see summary) two partitions on new SSD even though the partitions were not located side by side physically.

Cons

None that I have found.

Summary

I bought a new SSD, Samsung 850 EVO Series MZ-75E500B 500GB, to upgrade my Lenovo IdeaPad U330p (old SSD 128 GB). In the box for the new SSD, there was a CD with Samsung Data Migration (SDM) and Samsung Magician (SM) software.

I wanted to clone my old SSD to the new one and SDM is designed just for that. However, neither SDM or SM could recognize the new SSD using a SATA-3 to USB converter cable. Both software cought the identity of the cable (...) instead of the SSD.

I googled around of course and found that several people experienced the same problem. Ended up searching for data migration freewares and choosed to test this AOMEI software.

Turned out to work perfect! It handled migration of whole content (sector by sector) of old SSD to new SSD without problems. Moreover, I could expand the C partition on the new SSD to use the additional unallocated space even though the C partition and the unallocated space were not located side by side physically, something that Windows 10's own partition handler requires to do expand...

So if you want to clone one SSD to another and then do some partition work on the new SSD I can recommend this freeware! The computer seems to work exactly as before with the new SSD so the rating can only be 5 of 5.

Updated on Aug 13, 2015

I also want to mention that I performed the work using Windows 10.

"Brilliant for Virtualbox XP resized partition"

July 21, 2015  |  By Punch05

 |  Version: AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition 5.6.3

Pros

SO simply to use and it worked first time. I am running XP inside Virtualbox on an OS X Yosemite host and ran out of storage. I expanded the VDI size using Virtualbox commands and then needed to resize to include unallocated storage. Tried many times with GParted without success. Downloaded this and it showed C drive and unallocated. Right clicked C drive, selected Resize, then OK, then Apply, then Proceed - Voila done in the blink of an eye. Shut down XP and Virtualbox, then restarted and now have exactly what I wanted/needed.

Cons

Absolutely none for what I wanted to do.

"Easy to use powerful partition assistant"

March 06, 2015  |  By DannyB1993

 |  Version: AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition 5.6.3

Pros

- Ease of use
- Wizard tools for guidance
- Windows to go function
- Clean user interface

Cons

- Small language barrier but nothing to put me off using it

Summary

I recently came across a rather handy hard drive tool by the name of AOMEI Partition Assistant. As far as partition tools go, it is a fairly easy to use partition creator which has a more approachable user interface for basic users as well as more in-depth features such as file system converters for advanced operations.
Although users that are new to this kind of software may find it daunting, AOMEI Partition Assistant has various wizard tools to enable you to use the program features to its full potential.

Regarding the ease of use AOMEI Partition Assistant allows you to follow simple wizards to allow you to do simple operations such as copying your disk, creating a WTG (windows-to-go) disk and partition recovery.

The stress free disk copy function allows you to create a back up of your drive onto another drive so that you have cloned the information to the new drive. This can be very useful as it allows you to have a pristine backup in case your files get corrupted

AOMEI Partition Assistant has given me no problems as of yet and so far I have only had a great experience.

"Quick, works, FREE"

February 13, 2015  |  By TN2015

 |  Version: AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition 5.6.3

Pros

Worked as advertised. This is what MS W7 disk manager should have been.

Other people complained about "malware" being downloaded along with the program. I found no such "offers" which were made or forcibly downloaded.

Cons

None that I noticed.

"Great and easy to use!"

January 15, 2015  |  By Screw CNet Download

 |  Version: AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition 5.6

Pros

More features than the built in disk manager in Windows.
Powerful features.
Stable.
Easy to use.
Free!

Cons

The free version has certain limitations.

Summary

This is probably one of the best hard disk drive management programs. It's easy to use and stable. I haven't encountered a problem with this software yet. It has powerful features. You can format drives, create partitions, shrink or expand hard drives, etc with little effort. You might be wondering why you should download and use this instead of the built in disk manager in Windows. This program can resize and format active disks unlike the built in disk manager. It also has more features than the disk manager. You can even make bootable Windows CDs and USB drives. Plus it's free, so you have nothing to complain about.

"Works flawlessly"

January 10, 2015

 |  Version: AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition 5.6

Pros

Fast, reliable, good interface

Cons

Takes a few minutes to get the hang of how it thinks.

Summary

After two days of fruitlessly trying to get Windows to make a disk image so I could upgrade my HDD to an SSD, and no better luck with the useless software that came with the Intel SSD (Acronis), I downloaded this and within 20 minutes I had the new disk in place as if there never was an old one. Helps to actually read the instructions so you don't destroy your system but most people in the biz think they're too smart for that. Great to find a piece of SW that does what it says it will without hiccups.

"Worked for Windows 7, but not Windows 8"

November 17, 2014  |  By Brian_R170

 |  Version: AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition 5.5.8

Pros

Easy disk cloning in Windows 7

Cons

The free version doesn't clone disks with more than 3 partitions. Doesn't support cloning system disks with GPT (which is required for Windows 8).

Summary

I used this twice to clone a laptop drive when upgrading to an SSD. It worked great on Windows 7, but when I tried various methods on Windows 8.1, I got two different error messages. It said that it doesn't work on more than 3 partitions and it also says that it doesn't support GPT (GUID Partition Table). The description says that it works with GPT and Windows 8 and doesn't mention the 3-partition limitation.
