    "400GB files lost"

    April 25, 2010  |  

    Version: Partition Wizard Home Edition 4.2.2

    Pros

    looks like it should work.....

    Cons

    Fails to complete basic tasks successfully.

    Summary

    tried a basic extension of a partition from 400GB to 450GB. Figured, it's about as simple as it can get for partition software...Wrong. After 3 hours of doing something, PC rebooted, partition size is unchanged, partition appears as unformatted and 380GB files are lost. Wish I'd had enough storage to back up before using this software :(
    Live and learn I guess.

    "Excellent alternative to Partition Magic for most users"

    April 3, 2010  |   By daddywalter

    Version: Partition Wizard Home Edition 4.2.2

    Pros

    Fast, easy to use, very effective. Creates most common partition types.

    Cons

    A few limitations on partition types, although this won't be a problem for most users. If you're installing an non-Windows OS, use Partition Wizard to give you unused space, then let the OS installer do the rest.

    Summary

    Unless you work regularly with and OS that requires partition types this program doesn't work with, Partition Wizard should be all you need. (But do as the program suggests and perform a full backup first.)

    "Great program that just works without hassle"

    April 1, 2010  |   By azer666

    Version: Partition Wizard Home Edition 4.2.2

    Pros

    As said before it does it is suppose to very.
    Easy interface and fast.
    One other great feature the company offers is a cd bootable version that helped me with my Alienware m11x when i needed to re-partition. (used external drive hehe)

    Cons

    I dont know of any.

    Summary

    Great program.

    "Doesn't work"

    March 31, 2010  |   By solitairedaxel

    Version: Partition Wizard Home Edition 4.2.2

    Pros

    Quite intuitive, seemed to run okay

    Cons

    Requested reboot and would partition the drive before Windows loaded. It got partway through, gave an error, and restarted the computer. Three times.

    Summary

    As I didn't want my computer stuck in a never-ending loop, I uninstalled this. Pity, because the original display was quite nice - the problem is it doesn't work!

    "Excellent tech support, very good product."

    March 27, 2010  |   By dknapp

    Version: Partition Wizard Home Edition 4.2.2

    Pros

    Looks just like the old Partition Magic, but with added tools. When I had a problem combining two partitions, their tech support responded by e-mail very quickly and helped solve the problem with no data loss.

    Cons

    Ran into a problem with multiple steps. Was a. deleting an empty FAT partition and combining that with an existing NTFS. Operation went south for some reason and whole disk was reported as bad. Dinged one star for that. Read Pros for result.

    Summary

    Home version is free and being kept updated. Highly recommend as this is very easy to use, esp. if you are familiar with old Partition Magic product that was hung out to dry by Symantec.

    "Free but destroyed my laptop hard disk."

    March 27, 2010  |   By tazb2008

    Version: Partition Wizard Home Edition 4.2.2

    Pros

    Cheap/ free

    Cons

    Not very intuitive and did its own thing when scanning for faults then rebooted and it appears to have deleted the main boot partition, Luckily i backed up last week.

    "The best of the rest"

    March 16, 2010  |   By edterry0101

    Version: Partition Wizard Home Edition 4.2.2

    Pros

    This was free and I mereged and expanded my base partition with one empty, and moved another. Just a reboot was all that was required. I am running x64 Windows 7. Simple and set.

    Cons

    Not intutive as one would think, and no document along with the program. I fail to use help because it usually doesnt answer my questions.

    Summary

    All I can say is WoW, this worked great on my Win7 notebook. I long ago had Partition Magic, paid for it and it never worked as advertised. Once I decided what to do, and said to start it did everything I had requested. It notified me I had to reboot, and I was a bit fearful, but my system was totally backed up just in case. After the reboot it finished merging two partitions, then it rebooted and I loged in and using MS disk management, I had what I wanted!

    "laptop users disable power options before using product"

    March 14, 2010  |   By Kramer528

    Version: Partition Wizard Home Edition 4.2.2

    Pros

    Easy to use interface.

    Cons

    The program doesn't redisplay the progress screen if you recover from a sleep state. The program took an hour, but it was moving twenty gb of information so it could make space. so this wasn't too bad in the overall scheme of things..

    Summary

    I was using this on my laptop today and my computer went into sleep after thirty minutes. I freaked out and turned it back on.. black screen... but the hard drive was showing activity. I let the program run another fourty five minutes and it completed then rebooted. Note it went into sleep mode one more time before it was over. The computer booted up and worked fine. Anyways, if your going to use this on a laptop I advise you to disable the power options and ensure a constant power source. Excellant program!

    "Worked great, but took forever."

    March 12, 2010  |   By eye4bear

    Version: Partition Wizard Home Edition 4.2.2

    Pros

    Worked fine and the price is right.

    Cons

    Took forever to resize a small partition change.

    Summary

    For free, well worth a download.
