"TERRIBLE! Very limited!!!"

October 13, 2011  |  By S Mayer

 |  Version: iPartition 3.3.1

Pros

Nice Interface...appears easy to use.

Cons

1. does not allow chaning partitions on boot drive
2. does not work with SoftRAID
3. Does not work with AppleRAID (per their documentation), which is odd because AppleRAID is listed in the format types. I don't get that!
4. does not recognize RAID volume names, so cannot be sure which partition is which, when partitions are similar size
5. Loads both main drive AND volumes separately in list clicking on volume states it cannot find a Partition Map for the volume, but allows manipulating the volume without having to go to map of original drive map...DANGEROUS!

Summary

Since I cannot test stability without purchasing, cannot speak to that but based on its limitations, I have no incentive to try.

"ARECA Mac RAID partition expand"

February 16, 2011  |  By onairfreetv

 |  Version: iPartition 3.3.1

Pros

Does the job, good interface.

Cons

Needs more references to show how long things will take. Changed partition scheme of 750GB drive took 20 hours. Can't help the bad thoughts: I hope the power does not go out, is this thing working?

Summary

The software worked fine. I did a test of changing the partition scheme on a 750GB drive. That took nearly 24 hours to do. I was very nervous about doing that to a 3.5TB single partition drive. I finally decided to not expand but rather add a new partition. That was a great decision as that process was instantaneous.

I searched for expanding my mac raid and read lots of blogs and found little help. Tekram, the manufacturer of ARECA cards was no help either. "Not our problem"

If you have a RAID on a Mac, have expanded your capacity and find that Disk Utility will not expand your partition, iPartition will help you.
