Partitioning your hard drive is risky business. There is always the chance of losing your data if anything goes wrong. Therefore, backing up important data should be the first step when you decide to create new partitions from existing partitions, merge partitions together or allocate disk space to an existing partition. Previously, we have explained to you how to make partition in your hard drive easily and how to resize and move partition without losing data in Windows. Today, we have another partition manager and disk management tool for Windows-based systems called Aomei Partition Assistant. It provides you with multiple tools to easily resize and move partition, extend NTFS system partition, merge adjacent partitions into one etc. Keep reading to find out more about Aomei Partition Assistant.
The main interface of the application has System, Disk, Partition and Wizard menus at the top, the Wizard and Disk Operations options appear in the left side, while the details of the selected partition or disk appear in the right side.
A great thing about this software is that all the partition options have their own wizard. It allows you to do less mistakes and makes the partitioning process very user-friendly even for amateurs. For instance, If you want to extend a current partition, the Extend Partition Wizard takes you through the whole process.
