It is never a good idea to keep all data on a single partition. Dividing the hard drive into multiple partitions has many advantages and it offers a good flexibility. Isolating certain issues to a single partition, focused virus scans and the possibility of freezing a partition are just a few examples. MiniTool Partition Wizard makes it quite easy to partition or re-partition a hard drive. Thanks to its intuitive design, managing a disk's partition can be done with only a few clicks.

The software is available for Windows XP and all later versions, including various Server platforms. It comes in many editions, which have different capabilities and price tags. Among these versions, you can also find a Home edition, which is absolutely free. The software does not use too many resources and it doesn't have any special requirements.

Besides its partition management features, MiniTool Partition Wizard includes a data recovery utility, which has its own user interface. You can decide to launch the partition manager or the file recovery utility on a small window, which shows up on the screen when you run MiniTool Partition Wizard's executable. The file recovery tool can be used to salvage deleted, damaged or lost files.

The partition manager's interface displays your local drives in a list, along with various details, like capacity, free and used space, file system and so on. Options for resizing partitions or performing other operations are made available on the left side of the interface when you select a partition. Common functions, like resizing, merging, deleting or formatting partitions are displayed on a toolbar as well, to make them easier to spot.

MiniTool Partition Wizard will display different options, on separate windows, depending on what operation you wish to perform. In most cases, you will have to manage the free space on your hard drive, which is very easy. For example, if you wish to resize a partition, you only need to resize a colored bar. Unassigned disk space will appear next to your existing partitions and you can either use it to create a new partition or assign the space to its adjacent partitions.

The best part about MiniTool Partition Wizard is that it is completely safe. The software will not apply your changes immediately. You can reassign disk space, merge partitions and perform any action you want, without affecting your hard drive. Only when you are satisfied with your configurations, you may click a button to apply your changes.


You can reallocate free disk space, merge partitions and much more. All operations can be performed without any effort. To prevent any damage, the software allows you to preview your settings, before applying them.


There are no obvious drawbacks to mention. Thanks to MiniTool Partition Wizard's straightforward and easy to understand functionality, even inexperienced users can re-partition their hard drives, without any difficulties or risks.
