With every new iteration of Windows, Microsoft opts for many new enhancements to existing tools. Same holds true for the integrated Disk Management utility, which has seen a lot of improvement with every new release. Creating new partitions via Disk Management works like a breeze, and anyone can create a new drive partition within a few clicks. However, various third-party tools go far beyond than what Disk Management has to offer, by throwing in plethora of additional goodies. If you’re looking for a feature-rich disk management tool, then you have probably hopped onto the right place. Meet Eassos PartitionGuru
, a partition management application that does the job it’s supposed to do, and does it surprising well. Apart from creating (or deleting existing) partitions, of course, the application emphasizes on a number of additional features that are not to be found on other free tools, such as Partition recovery, Partition cloning, file shredding, file recovery, building USB bootable disk, verifying and repairing bad tracks, and much more. We all know that how RAID improves data read/write speeds, but this comes at the cost of higher risk of data loss (in case of power failure). Folks who run their hard drives on RAID would be pleased to know that this application also offers RAID support, and thus provides recovery from your RAID drives.

EASEUS has a brilliant philosophy when it comes to improving their products: for a limited time, provide the current version to the public for free, so that more people can provide feedback (email@example.com
) in order to improve the next version. Currently, it is Partition Master that's going for free.
On paper, Partition Master is a full-featured partition product, but frankly so are all other commercial alternatives. Not all have a decent backup or 1-on-1 copy feature on-board, though. Copying of (system) partitions can be done to smaller and larger destination partitions without a hassle. Read More
Editor’s Note: We have covered three posts so far on the topic of partition, you can find the latest one here. It is not an easy topic, one wrong critical action can lead to your data being lost. Before beginning, I would recommend that you make a backup of your important files, just in case something goes wrong. If you don’t have any space to make backup on your hard disk, you can backup online for free using Mozy, they provide 2Gb of free space which is enough for an ordinary user.
