    "Doesn't work on Win 7 64-bit"

    April 16, 2014  |   By Tryumph

    Version: MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition 8.1.1

    Pros

    Free, didn't seem to hurt anything.

    Cons

    Everything, since it installs OK but hangs when launching. Finally managed to kill the process with Task Manager, but took several tries.

    Summary

    Good luck ... maybe it's great on other systems.

    "It WORKED!"

    April 9, 2014  |   By terrybuchanan

    Version: MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition 8.1.1

    Pros

    After spending all day unsucessfully trying to repartition a used computer I just bought down from 2 virtual drives to just one with the disk manager that comes with Windows 7, I randomly found out about this s/w on one the forum posts that several people recommended this. Glad I did, because it fixed my problem in just a few minutes - literaly.

    And it's FREE!!

    Cons

    Nothing encountered so far after about week since I used it to turn two logical drives into just one.

    "Simple, Robust"

    April 3, 2014  |   By KingMango

    Version: MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition 8.1.1

    Pros

    I used it to shrink, and then create a new partition on my internal HD. I had no problems at all figuring out how to get that done. There are several other features that I have not had the need for yet.
    The way the program is designed it gives you a lot of confidence that you aren't going to irreversibly destroy anything.

    Cons

    I have not encountered any cons yet.

    Summary

    I will always use this program any time I have to partition an HD.

    "Brilliant and it's free!"

    February 18, 2014  |   By o0spyder0o

    Version: MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition 8.1.1

    Pros

    I needed a quick partition extension and tried a few free/trial versions out there and this one struck me as being the best of the bunch. It's well laid out and a breeze to use. The amount of help in the way of faq's/text and videos is the best. I was able to do what I needed in no time at all without any issues.
    I'm considering upgrading to the pro version for some extra features.
    What surprised me was that the software isn't even in some review lists and quite frankly I know some of those listed aren't as easy to use or have the features of this one. That's a shame as this easily beats them.

    Cons

    Nothing yet, what more do you want for nothing?

    Summary

    10/10
    Highly recommended
