"partitioning disk reliably and without fear of data loss"

What do you like best?

I like that it has support for different types of hard disk file system formats, which allows it to be used in different computers without any problem, it allows to expand or reduce the partitions in a dynamic way even without formatting, which makes to be able to change the size of the hard dices of the system is very easy and practical since I do not need to delete files or save them in other removable media like usb pendrive, something I like also is that I can change the file system from FAT format to NTFS without formatting which I found very novel, because usually I always had to be formatting with other programs.

What do you dislike?

I think the program price is somewhat high, if you could lower the price would be more convenient for many, although it has a free version, it is limited to a few functions that make the work with the program is very limited.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you wish to partition your hard drives use the program because although its price is not the most economical, its functions are quite effective, you will not lose data in the creation, expansion or reduction of partitions, and you do not need to be a expert since the program has an assistant that helps you a lot in the tasks that can be done with the application.

with minitool partition wizard the creation or elimination of hard disk partitions is an easy task, in fact I could realize that with the program you do not need to be an expert to use it, although in my case I am more experienced I have used other programs and I can give testiminio that the program is one of the best at the time of making an enlargement of disk size without loss of data that is one of the features that are most sought when using a program like this, so that has allowed me to optimize the work.

"an efficient program for the creation of partitions on my computer. "

What do you like best?

the program is excellent for hard disk partitions, anyone can make use of it because it presents very easy to use options, also has an assistant for copy of partitions and entire disks, you can make partitions in FAT format to NTFS and vice versa without losing data or formatting, it allows to expand or reduce the partitions created to change the size and it is not necessary to format and you do not have data loss, which is excellent.

What do you dislike?

as a designer I think the interface is very simple, well the manufacturers and developers could improve the graphic interface of the program since it is very simple, and for such a complete and powerful program I think it would be vital to enhance its graphic features, in order to make it more attractive and according to the graphic modernity of the latest versions of the Windows operating system, on the other hand in terms of functions I just have to say that I love it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

the program is highly recommended firstly because of the efficiency during its work and the effectiveness of its results, partitioning a disk is too simple, the options are really very powerful when executing them, so users will have at their disposal an application with very complete functionalities for the disk partition and it is worth noting that it is completely free, and the downloadable file has such a small size that it does not occupy practically any hard disk space, and the consumption of resources and memory of the system is very balanced .

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

in my work I have many images and files that are vital for the realization of my activities, and sometimes I have suffered from data loss and failures due to unknown reasons, the installation of this program has allowed me to efficiently organize the disk hard, so that I can have a partition according to the type of program that I use, and in this way to more correctly manage the files corresponding to the applications I use, the option to expand or reduce the partitions I use it with some regularity depending of the amount of data that is generated according to the work.

What Other IT Management solution do you use?

"to partition easily and securely"

What do you like best?

I like that it is really very simple to make partitions to the hard disk, it is much easier and you have more options than the windows disk partitioner, since it has a graphical interface that shows you the most important functions quickly, you can make partitions of discs with the partition assistant, the partitions can be expanded and reduced without having any loss of data on the hard disk, has the advantage that it supports virtually all disk formats, it is important to note that the program has tools for recovery of partitions so that recovering a lost partition for unknown reasons is very easy with this program.

What do you dislike?

the program has many advantages, however I must mention that although it has a free version is very limited, which forces users to use other options, certainly the paid version or professional is the full version but the free version It should offer more advanced options.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend the application because it allows non-experienced users to safely partition the hard drives, and most importantly, really the application to partition discs that comes preinstalled on windows is very deficient and does not offer any security to the time to partition your hard drive, with partition wizard security goes hand in hand with efficiency, since you can partition without formatting the disk which is a huge advantage when you have no other backup support for the information, the professional version is the recommended since it offers all the necessary functions for the job and complete performance of the application.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

with minitool partition wizard has allowed to organize more efficiently the space on the hard disk, so that by creating several partitions I have been able to store the photos and videos in different partitions to the operating system, so that in case of any failure The sensitive information is not affected and does not damage the system files.

"partition a disk in the easiest and most comfortable way"

What do you like best?

I like that partitioning is very easy, the program has dedicated buttons that allow to partition in a comfortable way, you can partition and format partitions of the MBR system to GPT, besides it is possible to completely copy a partition to other hard disk that are of the same type of file system, the application allows the option of recovering a partition if an error occurs in the PC and the partition disappears or has errors in tables and file system, in case you have deeper errors it is possible to perform a surface test and verify the status of the hard disk and most importantly you do not need to have extensive technical knowledge to perform these activities for the creation and copying of partitions, so that anyone can do it.

What do you dislike?

the program you have many benefits without thier I think it would be convenient to lower the price of it, since there are other competitors with cheaper prices, also I think it is convenient that the program is translated into Spanish, because if you do not understand well the English language does not take advantage of all the potentialities of the application..

Recommendations to others considering the product

the application is highly recommended since without technical knowledge it is very easy to partition hard drives and without data loss, on the other hand the partition recovery tool is very effective and should have this program installed in case it occurs failures and with this recover the partitions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In the university the information and the data of the university students is important, reason why to have supported this information is fundamental for the protection of the information, so that the realization of partitions is the easiest way to orgranize the information and at the same time , to be able to support the same by making a copy of the partitions every semester, the application has perfectly fulfilled this task so that it has become our ally for the maintenance of the academic information in the institution.

It is super practical, easy to use, in addition to having many features that help you get the best performance of your disk or memory, it also allows me to recover data if I have deleted the partition or if I do not recognize any program. The most novel thing is that it's completely free! so it gets you out of trouble without paying a dime.

What do you dislike?

I do not dislike anything, but I would like as a user to recommend an improvement in the design, something more dynamic, at the same time a little fluidity, that is, to accelerate its performance, because sometimes to make a single change takes time.

In general, it is a good program.

"The Mighty MiniTool (Free Version)"

What do you like best?

Let me begin with what most people type on search engines when they are in trouble, "FREE". They saved hundreds of hours with this tool even when hard drives appeared to be damaged. Many people that are not tech savvy find it invaluable when they have disks issues.

What do you dislike?

- I find it difficult to work with dynamic disks.

- Partition Wizard is not available on mac iOS though other product lines are available.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a go, and you'll never regret. It is suitable for techy and nontech users. Everyone now is in a rat race and want to solve every problem in a hurry. MiniTool is the right tool for that. Buying the Pro version is reasonable even for individual/personal users.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My first experience with it was when my 500MB external hard drive lost its drive letter in 2009, and no computer recognises the hard disk. I did all I could from downloading many disk repair tools to opening the hardware but to no avail. Then came the MiniTools Partition Wizard which solved the problem that took me nine days in just two minutes - downloading, installing and diagnosing and fixing the problem with the drive letter.

It is noteworthy that the program allows you to perform a hard disk surface test to be able to visualize the status of it. On the other hand it is necessary to mention that it incorporates an assistant to copy a complete partition.

What do you dislike?

the graphical interface can be improved to the new minimalist tendencies of the time, in addition the process of partitioning a hard disk with a lot of data can be delicate if it does not do in the specific steps and following the partition assistant, since there can be minimal loss of data , which is sometimes undesirable.

What do you dislike?

What I like the least about the program is that if you get to partition a disk in several parts, sometimes it turns out that the size is not exactly what you expected, differing in very few megabytes, but with the rest of the functions it goes Excellent.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it because with this application I have been able to recover complete discs that were thought to be lost, its use was simple and intuitive in the recovery of partitions, also I must add that making a partition is very simple, it is certainly an application that facilitates the work that only experts before did.

"Simply superb"

What do you like best?

the features within this tool are simply amazing and much better than the inbuilt disk management of windows systems. the best thing about this software is that its free to use. the user interface of the software is excellent and very easy to navigate. a lot of explanation is not required here. there are many features within it from the basic functions such as deleting or formatting a partition to advanced features like merging, extending, splitting partitions .etc. you have the option to create the hard disk partition you like in a virtual place within the software and you just have to press the button. the software automatically do all the commands one by one to make the hard disk look in the way you desire.

What do you dislike?

the tool is very slow comparatively and seems to take forever to complete the process. you cant convert NTFS to FAT32 without the pro plan. the system will lag or probably hangs when the process is taking place. the documentation of this software is not good enough. the support of the software is limited and takes a lot of time to reply to your queries. for working on windows server, you need extra license as the basic version do not support them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

the software is basically free so i recommend you to try it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

minitool partition wizard is a software to manage your hard disk. there are a lot of features within the program and this is one of the best and advanced disk management solution I've come across.

"Powerful Features"

What do you like best?

Partition wizard is a hard disk management software from the mini tool and one of the most popular in its field. There are a lot of features available for the software that helps us control the hard disk partitions in a way that require from as essential as wiping partitions to making them primary or secondary. You can also move, resize, split, remove, clean, delete, extend and merge had disk partitions. It can do the partition management that was not previously possible using the disk management provided by windows.

The interface of the software is simple and easy to understand even for the primary user. Another thing is that the software supports a wide range of Windows operating systems and that include the server versions which I find helpful at times. There is an option to create a plan before actually executing the process, and this gives the user an idea of what their hard disk will look like after the disk management. you can also convert the format of the drive from FAT32 to NTFS and otherwise. there is also a free version of the software available with limits in case you want to try the software.

What do you dislike?

the process takes a lot of time to do the process compared with the time taken by windows build in disk management. the free version of the software is way too limited to try.

Recommendations to others considering the product

this is one of the best tools out there and its cheap, I highly recommend you the product.

"Partition Management - On the FLY"

What do you like best?

The ability to adjust partition sizes quickly. As long as it doesn't involve the "System Partition" you can do it without even a reboot.

What do you dislike?

Not really a flaw in the software, but if you need to resize the "System Partition" you must reboot for it to complete the resize.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a handy tool to keep on an external drive in case you ever need to resize partitions. Even works on "System Partitions"!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

If you have a machine that was partitioned incorrectly. and do not want to reinstall the whole OS, this works great. I used it on an older Windows Server install that only had a 20GB partition for the OS. Resized it and rebooted for a new partition size.

"Lots of Features"

What do you like best?

this tool is packed with a lot of features that lets you complete anything you want with the hard disk partition with ease. coming to the software, its very lightweight and hardly influence the system performance. the interface is very clean and very easy to understand. the website got a good documentation of the software if you ever got stuck while using the software. the support team is also great and responds well with the queries. coming to the features, it got all the features of the build in disk management options from microsoft and much more. the one option that i really liked is the option to extend the primary drive which is not possible in windows disk management. there are also other tools like shrink volume, delete the partition, join partition, split partition and copying partition. you can aslo convert the partition from one format to other which can be a handy tool

What do you dislike?

the software is a great tool but the pricing can be a burden for some users. the free version is really bad and very limited in choices of features.

You're able to convert between primary and logical partitions.

Some features appear to be an available option only until you click on them, after which you're told you need to upgrade to a paid version to use it.

If you have two similar disks on a system, you could very well wind up operating on the wrong one if you're not paying attention.
