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Since this drive only held an out-of-date backup, we weren't worried about reformatting and resizing it, but Partition Assistant didn't lose any data that we didn't deliberately overwrite by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

"Free version is USELESS with Dynamic Discs!"

June 21, 2012  |  By joerules55

 |  Version: Aomei Partition Assistant Home Edition 5.0

Pros

None! At least for dynamic disc structures.

Cons

Will do NOTHING with a dynamic disc structure unless you upgrade to a NON-free version, and I wouldn't trust it to do anything there either since the free version promises all sorts of things it will NOT do. Won't merge, won't resize, won't create, won't do anything with a dynamic disc, so don't trust the paid version to do anything either!

Summary

Now I wonder what it will leave behind when I uninstall it. Free, my ass!

"This is just amazing."

June 12, 2012  |  By nomanfayez

 |  Version: Aomei Partition Assistant Home Edition 5.0

Pros

The most important thing that it is light. Use less system resource. Compare to any other soft it has 3 to 4 MB in size. Linux file system also supported.

I have use version 4 Pro edition for long time. Version 5 added new features. Migrate OS to SSD and HDD is very usefull feature.
In Pro edition you could also fix the system partion.

Cons

"Attractive helpful product"

June 06, 2012  |  By charles222z

 |  Version: Aomei Partition Assistant Home Edition 5.0

Pros

making new volume is much easier than windows
creating partitions with no unallocated space is true as it advertised on site.
other features are worked fine as well. ..

Cons

making bootable cd is good but it will take much time to download AIK.

Summary

Unfortunately I missed the giveaway of its pro edition from freewaregenius, but the experienced editor recommended us this free version as well/ visited, downloaded, tried, yes, worked as he said, thanks.
this is another great free software.

"Piece of garbage"

June 05, 2012  |  By borisf98

 |  Version: Aomei Partition Assistant Home Edition 5.0

Pros

None at all.

Cons

Tried to merge partitions on external drive. Program said that restart was needed. Ok, restarted computer and Partition Assistant started to load. Showed that operation can not be completed and asked for another restart. Here, where thing went wrong. There is no way to restart because keyboard is not responding. So there is no way to restart or abort program. Plugging on/off computer does not work because it still loads into Partition Assistant. Finally remembered to F8 and check Start with Last Good Config or something like that.

Summary

Is not worth troubles.

"Unforgettable! A customer for life..."

June 04, 2012  |  By Janne-k

 |  Version: Aomei Partition Assistant Home Edition 5.0

Pros

Wow, this new version 5.0 made me stunned, it helps me migrate windows os to ssd easily, if i guess right, this is the first free application could migrate os to ssd.

Cons

I also would like to use Linux Ubuntu, but it seems they start to do this field because it supports some basic linux partition managemnet.

Summary

I know if we dont try we dont get the truth, as I choose this program.
fast email support, patient explain, and there is a greatest difference between aomei and others, I planed to purchase its pro version but they suggested me use this free version because they said free one also could solve my main problem. ...
You never know it, I was touched.
I think we have to let more people know this free application and let more people benefit from AOMEI.

Thanks again. Thanks! THANKS A MILLION!
