"Solved my problem in a go"

March 26, 2015  |  By dentur

 |  Version: Stellar Partition Manager 2.5

Pros

Built-in intelligence of this utility makes the work successful and best

Cons

Can't resize boot camp :(

Summary

From last two months, I was trying to format my iMac 2009 but all in vain since Disk Utility couldn't perform partition at all. This fully featured partitioning utility created the desired partitions effortlessly on my Mac machine without asking much technical queries.

"Not Fit For Purpose"

February 16, 2015  |  By rwreed

 |  Version: Stellar Partition Manager 2.5

Pros

Creates Partitions

Cons

SPM is not able to create the partition size of your choice as it ALWAYS oversizes them by 7.5% and they are unable to resolve the problem after 2 long screenshare sessions with 2nd level Tech Support. My first download also mixed up the names of partitions on a particular 3TB drive that was resolved by a letter update.

Summary

Having used an excellent Partition Manager in Windows over a number of years, the Stellar version falls well short of what any MAC customer would expect, and there is no prospect of it being fixed.

"Created Multiple Partitions quickly"

January 27, 2015  |  By darwatts

 |  Version: Stellar Partition Manager 2.5

Pros

Tech support is good at resolving the issues

Cons

Can't work on boot drive directly. Rather ask for creating a bootable DVD

Summary

I faced issues while formatting and creating a new partition on Macintosh HDD. Even Disk Utility was not in the favor of partitioning the drive. However, when I used this software, it created multiple partitions, as I wanted.

"Toned my MBP partition"

December 22, 2014  |  By Ortega.springs

 |  Version: Stellar Partition Manager 2.5

Pros

Easily resizes partition

Cons

Takes time to make boot dvd.

Summary

Used Stellar Partition Manager last night on my MBP 2011 hard drive. It resized the drive with ease, in fact took only 15 minutes to complete the resizing process. However, it took hours to make the bootable dvd of my drive which made me bit impatient.

"Quite up-to Date Software"

September 30, 2014  |  By kelly-L

 |  Version: Stellar Partition Manager 2.5

Pros

Re-partition hard drive without data loss
Has everything to partition Mac drive.

Cons

demo version does nothing special

Summary

I didn't find any issue while formatting and resizing Mac drive. Prompted me a message to create a bootable DVD, as I chose boot volume from the left sidebar to resize. I can use this DVD to boot my non booting Mac machine.

"I m happy it worked"

September 11, 2014  |  By alta.woodland

 |  Version: Stellar Partition Manager 2.5

Pros

Detect bad drives

Cons

No Boot Camp support

Summary

I had this Seagate Expansion 500Gb hfs formatted external drive that failed to mount on my Mac. I tried replacing the usb cable, plugged in another Mac but it failed all time. I became sure of its failure but I thought giving it a last chance with Stellar Partition Manager. I don't know how & why, but software detected the external drive. I formatted it and split into 3 partitions. Saved all settings and after the entire process it appeared on my desktop. Good it saved my investment.

"Repartitioned bad disk"

August 10, 2014  |  By hopmeontonio

 |  Version: Stellar Partition Manager 2.5

Pros

Repartitions stubborn drive

Cons

Overly Priced (since you use for limited no. of times)

Summary

I wouldn't have turned upto any paid software that partitions the Mac hard drive. I know disk utility does it for free. However, on one occasion, I lost electricity to my Mac & later disk utility failed to repartition hard drive on multiple times. The power surge did good damage to the drive making it stubborn to be repartitioned by the disk utility. Anyhow, I installed Stellar Partition Manager which created bootable DVD & got my HDD partitioned in my desired way. I am thankful for healing my issue.

"Did what disk utility couldn't do"

May 13, 2014  |  By copsarah

 |  Version: Stellar Partition Manager 2.5

Pros

Collects free spaces on HDD
Utilises free spaces

Cons

Does nothing in demo version

Summary

My mac was unable to resize the boot partition. Everytime I resize the disk with disk utility, it would fail. I got this software and created the boot dvd with it. The software started in bootable environment and it let me resize the boot disk partition and occupy spaces. Disk utility won't do that for me.

"Did not work"

March 03, 2014  |  By snowtelly

 |  Version: Stellar Partition Manager 2.5

Pros

None as far as I can tell.

Cons

downloaded it. Installed fine tried to use it from either windows partition and Mac (maverick) at which point it asked to burn dvd so I found a dvd burned it.
Hung on boot so figured dvd no good.
burned another
tried again no good
asked for support and all they did was send me another image to burn.
With a note that they do not do refunds (even though I had not even asked for one!)
In the mean time had found and used Camp tune X which worked perfectly, is half the price without having to muck around with images as it works directly on the hard drive, even the booted one. Far better.

Summary

no go

"An alternative of Disk utility for handling partitions"

May 23, 2013  |  By techgeeks2009

 |  Version: Stellar Partition Manager 2.5

Pros

Its very easy and safe to use. I trimmed my partition of 250 GB to 100 GB and clubbed the free space created (150 GB), with another free space to create a new partition. I don't know if it is possible with disk utility.

This is the first tool for which I didn't ask anyone about how to use it because everything is self explanatory.

Cons

Can't work on boot drive directly but creates a boootable DVD first.
