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.

"Version 8 - Destroyed the boot sector on my Win 7 drive"

January 20, 2015  |  By myrev799

 |  Version: MiniTool Partition Wizard Free 9.0

Pros

Seemed like a good deal - free software to resize and copy partitions - I used it a few times on XP with no problems

Cons

As soon as I came to use it on Windows 7 it destroyed everything - in fact this is now the third time its destroyed my boot partition when I have tried to copy or resize a Win 7 partition its finished its processing and left me unable to reboot a PC (I build PCs for fun). So its the sortware not me I am 100% sure of that but I dont know why it does it - If you use this freebie be aware you are at risk of losing all your data !!!!

Summary

I will not be using this again - its just not safe enough in my opinion.

"Did the job quickly and safe!"

December 30, 2014

 |  Version: MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition 8.1.1

Pros

Easy to understand interface.
Could do the task which the built-in Windows tool couldn't.
Better than system tool

Cons

I did not spot any Cons

Summary

OS Windows 7. I needed to partition the drive, 2TB, in two, system (150GB) and data (1.8TB) . Easy as it seems, but MicroSoft standard tool did not want to make system partition less than 900(!) GB. As a result I went online to search for better partitioning tool. MiniTool did an excellent job here quickly accepting the needed sizes for two partitions and then did the job after having restarted the system.
Clean and neat. All works now as I wanted.
