Review: EASEUS Partition Master

If you need more partitioning power than the Windows native Disk Management provides, you should take a closer look at EASEUS Partition Master 4.1.1.

and actually moved free space from one partition to another and then resized the partitions without any faults or problems. I recommend it over other products. Acronis is a great product but I've found EASEUS product to work without hitches or problems with SCSI drives better than Acronis and it's cheaper.

I would like to know how to transfer one disk (40GB) to another (500GB) and still use the full partition of the 500GB? I have tried to use it but it only creates a 40GB partition. I then have to create the rest of the partition on the HDD and format it to get my 500GB.

I have a Windows 2003 SBS with 4 physical disks running RAID 5, C:\ is 25GB, D:\ is 675GB. Problem is, with updates, programs, etc., the C:\ is running low on disk space. Anybody know if this product (or any other) will resize the partitions on a RAID 5 array? Thanks in advance for any good info!

Has any one tried Partition Wizard (listed under Competitive products)? It looks promising. Their free version includes support for 64-bit. It looks like they are also offering the Business edition for free with registration for a limited time. Although I can't see a difference between the home & business edition. I think I'm going to try it out on a new build this week.

I've used this product on several of our production servers (Win2k3 Standard and Enterprise) with zero problems. The GUI is easy to use and the actual partitioning (at boot time) is pretty quick. I strongly suggest defragging your drives before repartitioning.

PartitionMagic 8 does not seem to care whether or not the drive is RAID, so long as DOS sees the drives as one disk. I regularly re-sized, added, and removed partitions during the five years a RAID system was in use. It was an Asus motherboard with an Intel controller chip. I installed the Intel Application Accelerator (now Matrix) software with Windows, but neither DOS nor Linux needed it.

The interface for Easeus and the interface for Partition Wizard appear to be almost identical. That's unlikely to be a coincidence, so what's the relationship between the two products or their publishers?

I thought the Acronis Disk Director Suite was easy and safe to use but this EASUS Partition Master is better. And it's free for Home Users! I've used it on Win XP and Win 7 machines without a glitch. However, as with all repartitioning software out there, it's still not clear to me whether the resulting partitions in one physical hard drive become contiguous. Or it's like: [Partition 1] + [Partition 2] + [Continuation of Partion 1 (which used to be a portion of Partion 2 before being reallocated to Partition 1)]. Anybody knows?

Used to be Partition Magic. But I gave this product a try and free is a hard price to beat. Worked as good and very user friendly.

I've always been wary of partition managers, but I've used this now on several XP and Vista systems with no problems. It's easy to use and works great with both empty and full partitions. .. and yes, always back up your data first!
