In this MiniTool Partition Wizard Review 2016, I’m going take a good hard look at a very interesting product that we’ve come across recently at GeekersMagazine.com. MiniTool Partition Wizard is a unique Windows app that allows you to manage your PC’s hard drive partitions. So it’s a great tool for those who want to go deeper into their PC’s hard drive(s) and tinker with it, perform a partition expansion, a surface test or a format conversion. I know all of this sounds very complicated, but fear not, I’m going to explain everything in this MiniTool Partition Wizard Review 2016.
Do You Need MiniTool Partition Wizard 9.1?
That’s the first question I had in my mind before trying out this tool. Do I really need it? After all, I can resize the partitions on my hard drive using Window’s built-in tool, which comes for free along with Windows. Why pay extra for a hard drive partition tool?
Well, you should buy the MiniTool Partition Wizard 9.1 for the simple reason that it has many more features than the basic Windows partition tool. With this tool, you won’t be restricted by any fragmented or unmovable files when you’re resizing an existing partition, for example. So this allows you to resize, extend, move or split the partitions much faster and more effectively, so that you can make a much better use of your hard drive, without having to start everything from the very beginning.
Also, the MiniTool Partition Wizard 9.1 allows you to copy the partitions along with the entire disk itself to another hard drive. Why is this feature so important? For the simple reason that when you are upgrading to a new drive which has more space, you will ideally want to be able to copy the partitions of the old hard disk into it. This is made possible by the MiniTool Partition Wizard. Another thing the Partition Wizard does is to make it possible to align a partition for superior performance.
How does the MiniTool Partition Wizard Work?
The MiniTool Partition Wizard comes with several hard drive formatting, data-transfer and relettering options. It comes with two sections, Wizards and Operations.
“Wizards” has a simple guide that has easy instructions on what you need to do to migrate your PC’s operating system to another drive, how to copy a partition or the entire disk and even how to recover a partition that was deleted in the past.
“Operations” comes with options such as Change Drive Letter, Hide Partition, and Wipe Disk. While there are other tools that can do the same, such as EaseUs Partition Manager. But that costs $159 and MiniTool Partition Wizard Pro costs just $39. That’s a lot of money saved, indeed.
The MiniTool Partition Wizard Pro is compatible with all versions of Windows operating system, such as Windows XP, Vista, 8 and the latest Windows 10.
Who is MiniTool Partition Wizard For?
So who is the MiniTool Partition Wizard for? It’s for geeks as well as wannabe geeks or non-geeks such as myself! I mean, have you wondered what the insides of your computer are like? I learned so much by using this tool and become so much smarter about my PC. It made it partitioning the hard drive a really easy thing to do and now my PC is much faster than before, smooth as silk.
The Bottom Line
The MiniTool Partition Wizard 9.1 is one of the most popular hard disk partition tools out there and made waves as one of the top 10 windows apps on CNET. It has over 13 million downloads on CNET. It comes with a free version that has many of the things you would expect in a partition tool, but to make the most of it and to access all the features, I suggest buying the paid version, the MiniTool Partition Wizard Pro, which as I said earlier costs $39 for a single license. For $59, you can buy the free lifetime upgrade version of the MiniTool Partition Wizard Pro.
