Editors' Review

+
You'd expect a program called SwissKnife to do all sorts of things, but this tiny application does only two: creating and quickly formatting disc partitions that can be read by Mac, Windows, and Linux systems. It can't resize, move, or even delete created partitions, nor can it work with partitions on the boot disc. It can, however, make FAT32 partitions larger than 32MB--something Windows 2000 and XP can't do. For swapping an external drive between platforms, CompuApps SwissKnife is just what you need. Otherwise, you'll probably do just as well with Windows Disk Management.

"Brings loads of rubbish in that I now can't get rid of."

June 18, 2013  |  By dorix1725

 |  Version: CompuApps SwissKnife V3 3.22

Pros

Didn't get round to using it.

Cons

This program downloaded with it: Zone alarm and everything that goes with it. Top hat games that came on every time I changed a page. After supposedly clearing 5 things out with Revo Uninstaller,now I still have Zone Alarm on windows startup and it keeps coming back every time I put laptop on. There is also Zone alarm security engine that is on the toolbar dropdown which I also cannot get rid of.

Summary

Unless you want all the extras, don't bother.
