Partitioning your disk can be a very helpful way for you to organize your files as well as retrieve them when you need to especially if you have only one hard drive in your computer. By partitioning, you can also protect your system files since you will essentially isolate them from your other files, which in turn, significantly lowers the risk of corruption to the system files on your operating system. If you are running Windows operating system like the most users, you already have the program that could do the partitioning preinstalled for you.
The problem, however, is that the stock partitioning program for Windows is essentially useless to an average user as it is not only complicated to operate, it is also hard to find in the first place. Unless you are confident enough that you will not mess up anything, it’s better to use alternative programs instead that are much more user-friendly. One such program is AOMEI Partition Assistant.
AOMEI Partition Assistant is basically a hard disk partition manager that is used to efficiently do the partitioning of your hard drives. It has all the basic functions of the stock disk management utility for Windows and more. Its biggest advantage against the other competitors is the fact that the free version it offers is already fully-featured which means that you can enjoy its powerful functions without having to pay a single cent.
You might wonder why the user interface looks familiar the first time you open AOMEI Partition Assistant and that is due to its design which was inspired by Microsoft Office applications. All the functions are neatly arranged so that you can easily see and access them if you want to. Your disk drives are clearly displayed in the interface so you can see all the details you might need during the repartitioning or do the other tasks that you have in mind.
With AOMEI Partition Assistant, you can resize or move your partition if you think that a certain partition needs more disk space or if you want to transfer some space from one partition to another. The move function which does not exist in the stock Windows disk management utility is a very useful feature that gives you more flexibility to allocate free space as seamless as possible between partitions.
The program also gives you the ability to merge partitions so that the contents of two partitions can be immediately placed into a single one which is a neat function if you want to reorganize your files and folders. Another thing that you can do is the Copy Partition function which can be used when you want to make a backup of your partition or if you want to quickly copy a large volume of files to another disk.
If you want to upgrade your old and clunky hard disks to a faster and newer SSD, AOMEI Partition Assistant can easily help you transfer your files and even your operating system to your SSD so you can immediately enjoy your new hardware with very little downtime whatsoever. AOMEI Partition Assistant also offers a unique feature known as Windows To Go which allows you to make a copy of your Windows operating system inside your USB flash drive. This means that you only need to plug in your USB flash drive to any laptop or computer and you can pretty much do your work anywhere.
If you want to troubleshoot something, you can also create a bootable USB or CD with Windows PE inside, which is simply a lightweight version of Windows whose purpose is to troubleshoot Windows operating systems while it is offline. Lastly, you can also integrate AOMEI Partition Assistant into the recovery environment of your system so that you will have another option for troubleshooting a corrupted file or disk.
AOMEI Partition Assistant runs on Windows operating systems and offers a free version as well as a pro version with a lifetime license which is priced at $47.95.
