    "Killed my drive in two seconds"

    April 04, 2013   |   By cnetneveruseagain

    Version: iPartition 3.4.1

    Pros

    The interface is nice, but it doesn't matter if it kills your drive when it crashes.

    Cons

    It killed my drive. It only took a second and my 8TB RAID5 was completely erased. iPartition crashed and the drive was gone. Don't use this if you want to keep you data.

    Summary

    Don't buy it if you want to keep your data. In a few seconds everything I had was gone. I have backups but I spent $50 on this software and all it did was erase my drive.

    "Works fantastic."

    August 12, 2012   |   By TOGGI3

    Version: iPartition 3.4.1

    Pros

    converts partition schemes just as advertised

    Cons

    takes forever and progress bar is not very informative, was stuck at 0% nearly the whole way through for me despite the program clearly doing work to the disk.

    "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.

    "Does what Disk Utility can't do.... resize without wipe"

    October 08, 2010   |   By coltseavers9

    Version: iPartition 3.3.0

    Pros

    Excellent feature set, excellent visual gui display of partitions, easy to use

    Cons

    the Licensing method they use isn't ideal but is not really a "con".... but really only thing I can even remotely say I don't love about this app

    "Over priced and not worth the Money"

    January 25, 2008   |   By Pop Tart

    Version: iPartition 3.0.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Got it, used it, slow and not worth the very high upgrade price for a program you would use a couple of time at the most per year.

    "Erased All My Data!"

    January 24, 2008   |   By Sophya

    Version: iPartition 3.0.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I tried out this product some time ago, in 2007, I cannot possibly recommend it for any sane person; and I will tell you why.

    Accepting the developer's word that this program could be used to partition, or repartition a hard drive, without having to reinitialize the disk, and without losing any of the current data on the disk, I took the plunge and attempted to do some work on a 120 GB disk which was loaded with data.

    I am not stupid. I have been a Mac user since 1990, so while I may not be very Unix savvy, I do consider myself experienced in normal everyday Mac OSX operations. I carefully followed directions. Imagine, to my shock and horror, when I discovered after the program had completed its tasks, that ALL of my data on the disk, every single darn byte, was lost, including the startup system. I had to do a total reinstall of everything. Thankfully, I had a lot of my personal programs and files backed up, but not all of it, so I did lose some important things.

    Well, I am sure you know where this program immediately went. Thanks, but no thanks. This is a dangerous and unreliable program, regardless of the developer's claims to the contrary.
