Editors' Review

MiniTool's Partition Wizard Home Edition is a free disk utility that adds powerful partition management capabilities to both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows installations. It can create, delete, resize, format, copy, convert, and hide partitions; change drive letters; convert dynamic disks back to basic disks; and perform critical tests and maintenance duties. It supports most disk types, including removable storage devices like flash drives and memory cards.

Partition Wizard's interface resembles recent Windows editions, with a familiar blue-toned navigation pane and color-delineated bar graphs for each disk partition. It opened with a detailed display of our system's disks and partition information, including a flash drive in a USB port. We opted to test Partition Wizard on the flash drive since there's no lack of tools for managing hard-drive partitions, but they don't always handle removable drives so well. We ran our little flash drive through its paces, gaining quick familiarity with this powerful but easy-to-use software. We like the Operations Pending window, which collects all selected procedures, awaiting your Apply or Undo command. Another nice touch is a Wizard file menu for quickly accessing the program's wizard-based copy and recovery tools. We clicked Format Partition to reformat our flash drive's FAT partition as NTFS, and then clicked Apply to initiate the change, which called up a caution message about open applications. Clicking Surface Test called up a dialog with the familiar animated block map display, whereas the Wipe Partition control offers several levels of disk-wiping. Simple commands like labeling partitions or changing drive letters are handled by small pop-ups, and more-powerful tools, like Copy Partition, offer much greater levels of detail and control. You can also download a free bootable, burnable CD ISO image that lets you boot into Partition Wizard to manage partitions without limitations, including functions like merging partitions and rebuilding Master Boot Records.

Partition Wizard Home Edition is a great example of the sort of freeware that can both simplify and enhance Windows' capabilities. It's an all-in-one disk partition manager that earns our top recommendation.

"It has a malware inside"

December 12, 2012  |  By Abogire

 |  Version: MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition 7.5

Pros

Free, easy to use, easy to make a partition on your Micro SD card (for android ext2)

Cons

When i restart my laptop after installing this program, i get a trouble to connect internet from wi-fi. I can't surf from my browser. The pages screen always says "Webpage not found". My office have a high speed connection and when i try to ping g**gl*.com it's writed RTO(request time out). So i uninstall this program, and now my high speed connection is back! I don't really know what makes my laptop get trouble when connecting to internet. Malware maybe?

Summary

If you still can't connet to internet when you uninstall this, try system restore

"Works as Advertised"

August 12, 2012  |  By lolthai

 |  Version: MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition 7.5

Pros

Worked exactly as described. I was able to move free space around on my hard drive quickly and easily. This saved me a ton of time. I just wish I would have discovered it sooner.

Cons

Instructions aren't great but the manufacturer has videos on their site that shows you step-by-step what to do and were very helpful.

"The software is the very one for managing partition"

August 07, 2012  |  By oone782

 |  Version: MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition 7.5

Pros

powerful software for free space of hard disk from one partition to other partition

Cons

no, absolutely

Summary

I have 4 partition in my hard disk. Partition C is almost going to be filled. But partition C have many more files connection to windows and network. Simple movement of file transfer is not my requirement. Unnecessary space in other partitions are to be transferred to C, this software is the very one for manage partition.

"The most wonderful program I have received for FREE"

August 06, 2012  |  By exitometro

 |  Version: MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition 7.5

Pros

I love everything about it. It's fast, accurate, safe, efficient.

Cons

I wish it had a "create a disk image and restore image" function. I guess that's probably too much to ask, since this is a freebie.
