    "Version 7.7 Boot Disk download is actually Version 7.6"

    January 12, 2013  |   By rlc1944

    Pros

    It's free.

    Cons

    Would like to be able to use my wireless mouse.

    Summary

    If you go directly to the Partition Wizard website at http://www.partitionwizard.com/download.html and download the Bootable CD (Home 7.7 Full Version) you get a 42.6mb pwhe7.iso file. So far all I have done is create the boot cd, and boot from it to start the program and 2 things are already wrong.

    1) When you create a bootable CD from the pwhe7.iso file, the help screen shows you are using Version 7.6 Build: 7/20/2012 (not version 7.7 like the website's download description says).

    2) The touchpad works, but my Logitech M705 wireless mouse that worked perfectly on my old v5.2 boot disk does not work on my new v7.6 boot disk.

    I'm not getting a good feeling so far, so I'll update this review after I try some partitioning operations on my spare PC.

    I downloaded the new Boot Disk file today (pwhe77.iso), and it was indeed ver. 7.7 Build 1/11/2013. I really don't care that my wireless mouse still doesn't work, since both my touchpad and wired mouse do work. Thanks MiniTool for that really quick response. Great CS.

    Mate, so far, you've been nagging about wireless drivers. How about the whole data backup/restore features? You can always fix BT connections, right?
