Editors' Review

+

MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition 8 adds disk conversion and copying to what was already one of our favorite disk partitioning tools, free or not. It creates, deletes, aligns, moves, resizes, recovers, splits, joins, hides, copies, and converts partitions or entire disks. It can change drive letters, label partitions and volumes, edit properties, and check file systems. It does all that and more for free, though premium upgrades for business environments, servers, and special needs are available.

Pros

Powerful and flexible: MiniTool Partition Wizard has the tools advanced users need to manage all their disk drives. We used the Split Partition tool's slider to size and create an 80GB partition on an external hard drive in mere seconds.

Undo it: An Undo button lets you back off changes before they're irrevocable.

Help: A fully indexed and illustrated Help file explains each feature and process clearly.

Wizards and extras: Both wizard-based and separate tools make MiniTool one of the most flexible partition managers we've tried at any price. It can wipe drives, create bootable CDs, change drive serial numbers, create dynamic disks, and export disk configurations, too.

Cons

Data killer: The only fault we've found with MiniTool Partition Wizard is common to all such tools: it can destroy data when used carelessly (always pay attention, take your time, and back up your data when formatting or partitioning disk drives).

Bottom Line

MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition 8 does what pricey premium tools do, and more -- yet it's free. It remains our primary disk utility.

"Simple and effective"

August 26, 2015  |  By ahardie--2008

 |  Version: MiniTool Partition Wizard Free Edition 9.1

Pros

I used this to create a partition on my second data disk to make way for a reinstall of W7. It did this with no problems without affecting the installed data which had already been backed up.

Cons

W7 wouldn't install until I changed it to a basic disk which was easily accomplished. There had been no information about the 3 types of disk configuration.

Summary

Simple and effective way to manipulate partitions and it's free.

"Changes to partitions were not applied to boot manager"

August 19, 2015  |  By RuudvandenBerg

 |  Version: MiniTool Partition Wizard Free Edition 9.1

Pros

Partitions seem changed correctly

Cons

Boot manager is unchanged
Cannot make system copy in Windows or in Clonezilla

Summary

My old MacBook with SSD contained OSX and Bootcamp Windows 10. Changes in Partitions seem OK: 1. Remove OSX partition, 2. Enlarge Bootcamp Partition to remainder of the SSD. Windows 10 starts. Disk manager shows the EFI partition and the Bootcamp partition (remainder of the SSD). But system copy is impossible, let alone system restore.

"Incredible, STUNNING...Wow"

May 16, 2015  |  By pomarakp

 |  Version: MiniTool Partition Wizard Free 9.0

Pros

EASY to use...select what you want to do...then click APPLY.
FAST...I mean really, REALLY, REALLLLLLY fast.
It works.

Cons

none...I guess they could send someone to your house to click on APPLY for you...but, oh well...

Summary

I deleted a partition by mistake...looked at 2 other partition restore products...downloaded them, ran them...WAITED 5 hours on 2 separate occasions...then found "Mini Tool Partition Wizard".

Bought it, installed it...ran it. 2 minutes later...my partition is back and I'm writing this review.

Go buy it. (Unless you'd rather waste 5 hours with some other program.)

"A novice that shouldn't be allowed to mess w/ computers"

May 07, 2015  |  By q8werty

 |  Version: MiniTool Partition Wizard Free 9.0

Pros

I unintentionally deleted a partition trying to transfer data from a bad drive.
I downloaded 2 tools from CNET and the first higher rated one didn't install correctly and crashed.
This tool installed perfectly. I was able to find my deleted partition and very cautiously set up undelete and change drive letter and then hit Apply.
I like the screen that shows Pending Actions.

Cons

Absolutely NONE.

Summary

I really should not be allowed to do any computer stuff. Thankfully, when I take 2 steps back, software like this helps me recover from my blundering mistakes.
I was thankfully able to recover my partition at 4:13 AM and am now copying the data over to a new drive.
Not being familiar with any partition recovery tool, this one is a life saver for me.
I would definitely recommend this tool for the novice computer person that makes a lot of mistakes trying to maintain your home system.
