EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition has been a go-to recommendation for a powerful yet easy-to-use disk management utility that just happens to be free. A familiar layout with disk map plus a full User Manual and lots of Help resources make for a great start. Partition Master Free can format, copy, resize, move, and manage disk partitions as proficiently as its premium competitors. It supports removable drives and hardware RAID, too.
Powerful yet free: Partition Master Free can Resize, Move, Merge, Migrate, and Copy disks or partitions; convert to local, change label, defragment, check and explore partition; and much more. A premium upgrade adds free tech support and the ability to resize dynamic volumes, but the freeware more than meets most home users' needs.
Wizards: Migrating your OS to an ultra-fast SSD or a new HDD? Or maybe you want to clone or copy a partition? There's a Wizard for that (and more) on the toolbar. Partition Master Free is SSD-friendly, too.
Business License: Home business owners can obtain a Business License for Partition Master Free with a few clicks.
Toolbar "extras" and pop-up ads: The data recovery, backup, and bootable CD tools displayed on the toolbar and Advanced menu aren't available in Partition Master Free. True, occasional pop-up (or slide-in) ads for other EaseUS software can be annoying, but not as annoying as paying!
In actual use, EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition proved equal or superior to other freeware disk management utilities and quite a few premium ones, too.
