Editors' Review

Paragon Partition Manager 2014 Free aims to make it easy to create, resize, reformat, and delete hard disk partitions, but its wizard-based processes compromise flexibility. Advanced users may need more control than this software's algorithms permit.

Pros

Mostly automated: Paragon Partition Manager scans your disks to identify existing partitions and available free space. All you have to do is check some basic options and let the software do the rest.

Mac and back: A built-in NTSF/HFS+ Conversion Wizard can make your Windows disks accessible to your Mac and your Mac disks accessible in Windows.

It's free: Users have comparatively few choices in freeware disk partitioning tools, so Paragon's entry is certainly welcome.

Cons

Complicated documentation: We're not sure which is more complex; the software's algorithms or the documentation explaining them.

Too little control: The software looks for the first disk to create a partition, then the next, and so on. The only available partition space it found was on our C drive (which we did not want to change) not our 320GB D drive or the 650GB external drive with 93GB of free space we wanted to partition.

Chaos potential: Inexperienced users who want to create a separate partition for their music files (for example) on their C drive might accidentally wipe the wrong partition (Paragon recommends backups; we strongly agree).

Bottom Line

Partitioning and managing disk drives requires care and attention to detail, and experienced users will probably want more flexibility and control than Paragon Partition Manager 2014 Free offers. But for basic or infrequent operations, it'll do fine.

"It's Perfect!"

December 17, 2013  |  By thesithempire

 |  Version: Paragon Partition Manager Free Edition 2014

Pros

I had allotted myself only 50 GB of space for Windows 7 on my Mac OSX, but as it turns out, I use the Windows partition much more than the Apple one (I like my familiar programs) and was about to reach the limit! I couldn't repartition it on its own without having to start from scratch (and have to download everything from the external hard-drive or lose it entirely).

So, after seeing some positive comments about Paragon Partition, I made sure to back-up everything first, and tried it. The program was easy to use (which is important) and allowed me to allocate whatever amount I wanted to the Bootcamp partition (which was another 100 GB). It took about a half-hour to do it, and it was done perfectly.

Cons

Not a single thing

Summary

It works. It's easy. It's free. What more can you want?!
