Editors' Review

Many people prefer to use a standalone disk management utility instead of the Windows Disk Manager for resizing and moving partitions, formatting disks, and other critical tasks. Until recently, most such tools have been premium software, but Aomei Partition Assistant Home Edition is a full-featured freeware disk management utility that can even be used commercially, which is great news for home and small businesses.

It can create, convert, hide, format, delete, wipe, resize, copy, split, merge, and move partitions, including altering existing partitions without data loss or corruption, on hard drives, flash drives, and similar storage devices. It works in Windows 2000, XP, Vista, and 7, both 32-bit and 64-bit editions.

Partition Assistant's blue tones, linear disk capacity displays, and toolbar make it a good fit for Office and similar suites, and the left-hand navigation panel and full menus not only display the program's features but make it a cinch to access them. Partition Assistant displayed our system's three physical disks (SSD, HDD, and USB) as well as each disk's partitions. We selected a nearly empty 140GB partition on our 2.5-inch hard drive and started by changing the drive letter and label, moving on to various formatting, resizing, and splitting options.

Since this drive only held an out-of-date backup, we weren't worried about reformatting and resizing it, but Partition Assistant didn't lose any data that we didn't deliberately overwrite by reformatting the disk. One especially useful feature is the ability to hide partitions. Many users like to "overprovision" their SSDs by partitioning off a percentage of the capacity to prevent all the drive's memory cells from filling. Hiding the partition makes it easy to keep from using it accidentally. Partition Wizard also has three Wizards to handle important jobs: Extend Partition, Disk Copy, and Partition Copy. The Partition Copy Wizard let us specify Quick Copy, which only copies the used space, and Sector-by-Sector, which copies the entire partition structure to a new disk.

Aomei Partition Assistant Home Edition would seem to be the most powerful and capable freeware disk partition utility we've tried. It's highly recommended for all users, and especially those with multidisk systems.

"Fantastic free application"

May 21, 2012  |  By Dran_Alim

 |  Version: Aomei Partition Assistant Home Edition 4.0

Pros

nice fresh interface, easy guide and easy to use.

Cons

Perhaps support Linux is a good choice but it is already very good now

Summary

I was amazed because it only took several minutes to extend the low disk space system drive.
I seems that many additional features are helpful as well.
Again, thanks for developing this fantastic free software. I like it. ~~~~~Hah///

"Not intelligent program"

April 30, 2012  |  By Neome

 |  Version: Aomei Partition Assistant Home Edition 4.0

Pros

Very bad first experience with it.

Cons

Very user friendly, but not very intelligent program. It destroyed completely my primary partition with OS. It might work in other ways, but do not move around or merge with OS partition with any other partition, you will just waste time of correcting everything.

"Worked VERY well, did the job!!"

February 16, 2012  |  By vinnievideo11

 |  Version: Aomei Partition Assistant Home Edition 4.0

Pros

EZ use and interface is simple and straightforward! It extended my original partition into a 2 TB drive, and now I am computing full tilt! I tried two other big name programs for this 'simple' task and to no avail. Ya gotta love freeware!!

Cons

None yet, all is good!

Summary

Easiest of three different partition 'wizard' based programs I used, I was looking to extend a partition and this program did the job ASAP and I am VERY pleased. Probably won't ever need it again, but if I do I know where to go now!

"Damaged my partition"

February 12, 2012  |  By Adam_Cx

 |  Version: Aomei Partition Assistant Home Edition 4.0

Pros

Probably easy to use.

Cons

I was trying to split my system partition. Resized it in the program, clicked Apply, the program asks me to continue in special mode after restart. Click Yes, restart, then it starts working and after a while it tells me that my disk is not defragmented and it cannot continue until I defragment it. I'm now watching my files being copied to this computer because it screwed windows up. Great.
