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Since this drive only held an out-of-date backup, we weren't worried about reformatting and resizing it, but Partition Assistant didn't lose any data that we didn't deliberately overwrite by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.

    "What a grand software Tool"

    Version: AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition 5.5

    Pros

    I had spent a couple of hours trying to resolve a partition problem and found a link to the AOMEI software and within a few minutes of downloading I had my problem resolved. My hat goes OFF to AOMEI for their Partition Assistant software.

    "Excellent Product"

    June 29, 2014   |   By subscriber1001

    Version: AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition 5.5

    Pros

    I used this product to partition a 2 TB disk, something Windows doesn't do very well. This product has a graphical user interface (unlike windows) and makes it very easy to change the size of or partition a disk... which is what I needed done. I was able to use the slider to create some unallocated space, which I used to create a second partition. It was a simple thing to do.

    Cons

    I don't know if there are any. The product did what I needed it to do, although it has many other features which I haven't tried... because I have no need for them at this point.

    Summary

    For a free product, this does an excellent job.
