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.

"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.

"Good software, but not free at all!"

April 21, 2015  |  By pk7935

 |  Version: MiniTool Partition Wizard Free 9.0

Pros

Works well, did what it can do.

Cons

With a price and not free at all. Limit to 1 GB of recovery.

Summary

Software costs you US$69. How many times you need this kind of utility? Use something else. Trying EaseUS Partition Recovery....

"Wow, that was fast!"

March 19, 2015  |  By qqleq

 |  Version: MiniTool Partition Wizard Free 9.0

Pros

* Download was fast
* The fix I needed to do was done megafast
* No reboot, no problems

Cons

* Interface could be a bit more intuitive, like dragging and dropping and resizing in the partition overview. It is only an issue I guess if you have to use it a lot.

Summary

Great if you just need to do one partition thing that WIndows can't do itself

"Nice, convenient tool"

March 09, 2015  |  By BarlesChabbage

 |  Version: MiniTool Partition Wizard Free 9.0

Pros

Easy interface

Cons

??? Presumably fewer features than the paid version, but I think the free one's fine for most users.

Summary

I needed to extend my right-most drive, but the Windows 8 disk management tool doesn't permit it. MiniTool did the trick.
