Many of us especially who are new to computers and who just got ourselves a brand new computer, we use it right away without changing anything or customizing anything. But later when there’s something that needs to be changed for example we want to convert Master Boot Record (MBR) to GUID Partition Table (GPT) or maybe performing partition clone, we’re going to need a special tool to perform the task.
Fortunately there is a very good partitioning software called EaseUS Partition Master that can help us out. The free partition solution and disk management utility allows for extending the partition, especially for system drive, overcoming the low disk space problem, managing disk space easily on MBR and GPT disk as well as convert MBR to GPT or help with partition clone.
There are 3 main components of the software which is Partition Manager, Disk & Partition Copy Wizard and Partition Recovery Wizard. For Partition Manager, it is used to create, delete, resize, move, merge, split, wipe or format partitions to make better use of the hard drive capacity and rearranging it for optimum usage. It can be used to extend an NTFS system partition without rebooting in order to maximize PC performance, safely merge two adjacent partitions into a bigger one without any data loss, converting a dynamic disk to basic disk and as well as a FAT to NTFS file system and vice versa, converting a primary partition to logical partition and vice versa, convert MBR to GPT and finally it can be used to speed up the computer slightly by doing disk defragmentation.
Secondly, under Disk & Partition Copy Wizard it allows for copying the entire partition with fast file-by-file copy in order to protect your data or also known as partition clone, copying an entire hard disk to another hard disk without having to reinstall Windows, upgrade the existing system disk to a larger hard disk with a single click and safely copy a dynamic volume to basic disk and resizing the basic disk.
Finally, there is the Partition Recovery Wizard which can recover deleted or lost partitions from unallocated space due to any personal, hardware or software failure or virus attack as well as it allows for recovery of deleted or lost partitions after repartitioning a hard drive. There’s two recovery modes that is available either Automatic or Manual.
In order to get the most out of EaseUS Partition Master, there’s a Professional Edition that is available for $39.95 for a single user license but there’s also a Free version of Partition Master. The major difference is that the Professional Edition allows for resizing of a dynamic volume, it supports Windows PE bootable disk, can be used for business usage as well as a free lifetime technical support service. For the Free version, all you need is to register yourself with a valid email address and the download link will then be emailed to you.
