This freeware partition manager isn't cute as a button, but it's charming nevertheless. Cute Partition Manager requires that you make a boot CD or floppy, but the process is laughingly easy.
The interface is DOS circa 1994, with simple text on a solid background, but the screen is filled to the brim with useful information. Cute Partition Manager quickly finds every hard drive on your system. At a glance, you see every partition, boot type, file system, partition start and end, and total size. All controls are operated though the function keys. However, the publisher neglected to include an end program and reboot key.
Still, we found it easy to quickly add or alter partitions and change select settings. Unfortunately, you can't merge or resize existing partitions. Basic partitioning functions are easy to set and are often better than standard DOS functions. You can create more than 100 partitions per disk and preview changes; both processes that are difficult with similar software. For those who like collecting ISO images, you can easily create CPM's ISO directly from the interface. Not for novices, Cute Partition Manager is the kind of freeware every system administrator wants handy.
