"Really Really Good !!!"

December 01, 2009  |  By smtandel

 |  Version: Partition Wizard Home Edition 4.2

Pros

1. Its Free
2. Its really small in size so doesnt take 2 much time to download.
3.has many other functions beside partition e.g. surface testing, chkdsk like utility.
4.Awesome online support.
5.good interface

Cons

1. No cons found.... even for a smallest problem u can contact online support. They r really good.

Summary

Well I basically downloaded it b'cuz it was small compared to some others and officially free.. i mean no headache of finding cracks n all.
only once it gave me problem which was actually due to error on my partition c... even couldnt fix it via checkdisc utility..n guess what? 'check system file' option in it corrected it 4 me.however The best thing was support. though it was written that premium account holders will b given advantage over free ones, the support was so quick to answer my above query that it was like chatting via e-mail! really impressed n satisfied overall.
p.s. I am not being paid by them 4 this response.

Pros

I agree, small learning curve. lost 1 partition on a 5 pat HD. On my third try I used check file system and checked "check % fis errors/ bam! presto! 9000 lines later, about 13 minutes all my dat was back. Amazing

Cons

Sorry I did not use this one first. Would have saved a lot of grief.

"Excellent partitioning software"

November 20, 2009  |  By xsintrix

 |  Version: Partition Wizard Home Edition 4.2

Pros

Was really surprised with the ease and use of this product. The GUI is intuitive and easy to use. Has a good help section and can access the support pages at MT Solutions website.

Cons

None noted.

Summary

I was trying to set up a second partition on my SATA HDD to load Windows XP. I was able to create and format the partition needed and was able to initiate the OS install. During the OS install, I had deleted the partition. I was able to download and burn a bootable recovery DVD (using a second computer and going to Partition Wizard's website) and was able to delete the "bad" partition and recover the good partitions. I had to delete all of the boot partitions but was able to use my system recovery DVD to repair the system..

If you initiate a full partition recovery and you have a rather large drive, expect a long wait (but ultimately worth the time).

Would recommend this software to intermediate and expert operators/users.

Good job to the software engineer(s)/developer(s).

"Amazingly SMALL & FAST"

November 20, 2009  |  By guann

 |  Version: Partition Wizard Home Edition 4.2

Pros

Small and FAST - LIGHTNING SUPER FAST!
Easy & clean user interface.
I can feel the power of my PC again (running this program)!

Cons

NONE - except no LINUX support - yet (however Xenix is supported).

Summary

Just download and installed on a Vista Ultimate x64 box. Overall, it was a extremely pleasant experience. The download was VERY fast (very small file size - 6.7MB) and the operation is extremely fast.
It launched SUPER fast! I made a simple change - add a drive letter from no drive and then remove it. Press apply button and it was done in a few seconds.
I have used EASEUS Partition Master Pro. It is a very good free program but limited to 32-bit support.
Partition Wizard, on the other hand, is extremely fast and support both 32 and 64 bit OS and Windows 7 included.
VERY happy experience!!!
