    "Did exactly what I wanted"

    June 5, 2014  |   By larrydaleparker

    Version: MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition 8.1.1

    Pros

    Did exactly what I wanted.

    Free.

    Cons

    None known.

    Summary

    I downloaded MiniTool Partition Wizard Free for a specific purpose. The hard drive on my Dell Windows 7 laptop contained both C and D volumes. I wanted to delete D and expand C, but the Windows Disk Manager wouldn't do the job. The MiniTool Wizard accomplished both tasks with no drama.

    I haven't tried any of the other features so far.

    "SAVED MY FILES, WORK & FAMILY PHOTOS!!!!"

    May 10, 2014  |   By jeffym71

    Version: MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition 8.1.1

    Pros

    It did what other programs didn't do and for FREE!

    Cons

    Nothing yet

    Summary

    Normally I back up all my files especially my work and various expensive program files, but like an idiot the past few weeks I hadn't. Hectic week.
    Anyways - I woke up to an unresponsive laptop days ago. It wouldn't work in safe mode, would shut down and recycle to the same page over and over again. When I tried to put the hard-drive in an external to get the files it wouldn't read correctly. Said it was damaged. I tried just about everything. Hooking it into another laptop, on my Linux computer to attempt to retrieve ... nothing.
    So I came here first. I downloaded one other "free" program that didn't work. It showed files, but for whatever reason was complicated and couldn't grab them without paying the extra "premium fees" so I did one last search.
    I found MINITOOL PARTITION WIZARD which located ALL my files on my "dead" hard-drive. I began to send them to my other laptop to restore them and discovered a tab that fixes problems with the hard-drive. So I said the heck with it after uploading the files I really needed and selected it. It CLEANED the problems out of the drive!
    So after days of stressing this program fixed it FOR FREE and in about 15 mins. I didn't even read the instructions! LOL
    If anything attempt the fix tool which reads errors on your drive. That's all I needed to do and couldn't initially because no other computer or external would allow access to the hard-drive. This program did.
    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

    Version: MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition 8.1.1

    Pros

    I tried Partition Recovery Wizard and it recovered my lost volume partitions in a couple of minutes.

    Cons

    Nothing I have noticed so far.

    Summary

    I accidentally removed my second HDD volume that contained my most important files. I felt so bad. I found this tool and I was able to recover my volume and partitions in a couple of minutes.

    I am relieved.

    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.
