... it is actually the best value for money and this might make it a more popular choice than
the winner. It does anything that most people need and it can back up the boot disk and restore it
if there is a problem, even if Windows won't start. It's less than half the price but almost as
good as the winner.

As the capacity of hard disk drives has rapidly increased, the need for disk partitioning
becomes increasingly more important. Disk partitioning is the separation of the data storage
space of a hard disk drive into separate areas referred to as partitions. A user may decide to
split a hard disk into multiple partitions in order to organize data more effectively. Each
partition can be accessed as if it was a separate disk.

If you have ever needed to partition a hard drive to use it for different systems (Linux, XP, or
Mac OS) you will know that there is no simple to use software available within windows (Disk
management as part of the Microsoft Management console is available but not very easy to use and
not deisgned for use by the average user). In order to create, merge, delete and resize
partitions it is much simpler to use an external software to perform the tasks for you. One
of these is Paragon Partition Manager 10 Personal which now allows full compatibility with new
partitioning-technology (GPT), which is used in Windows 7/Vista, Server 2008, Mac OS X and
Paragon Partition Manager 10 Personal can be run in either "Express Mode" (Wizard
based) or "Full Scale" (Advanced control) and offers a plethora of functions beyond the
creation, deletion, resizing and merging of disk partitions, sometimes even without the need to
reboot the system.
The software provides partition copying and migration tools to alllow for easy hard drive
upgrades and resizing of partitions between Mac OS X and Windows operating systems (very
useful if you use your intel based Mac as a dual boot system). In addition, there is a simple
to use backup feature to create full backups of your entire system or chosen files and a recovery
CD creator for system recovery. The Boot Management feature allows the user to optimise the
boot sequence of the system or even prepare the system for a new operating system (create a
new primary partition etc.).
We found each wizard very easy to follow with each step explained fully. As with all
we have reviewed, the help file is literally bursting wth useful information, including
walkthroughs of typical user scenarios. Each feature of the software is well explained and
the advanced control provides even more features to allow for everything from disk defragmenting to
surface tests. Paragon Partition Manager 10 Personal really is a fully featured software and
is very reasonably priced (~£22)with enough features to keep any system running smoothly.
A modern PC will be supplied with a large hard drive, generally over 250GB in size and with
Windows and other applications pre-installed. The hard drive is generally pre-configured either as
one large partition or, more annoyingly, made up of a number of smaller partitions. There is no
easy way of changing the size of these partitions from within Windows, using the supplied
Paragon’s Partition Manager is hard drive partitioning software that will enable you to change
the size of your internal hard drive or any drive connected to the computer.
Partitioning a hard drive enables files to be managed more effectively. For instance, a core
partition could be used to host Windows and system files, whilst another partition could handle
work and data files. It’s not a wise idea to use a partition to back up important data as it is all
stored on the same hard drive. However, by partitioning your hard drive, backup tools such as
Paragon Drive Backup 8 can be utilised to backup a partition, rather than the entire hard
If you’ve often thought about installing another operating system on your computer, such as
Ubuntu or another Linux distribution, a separate partition could be created to handle the Ubuntu
installation so it is kept apart from your Windows system files.
Paragon Partition Manager isn’t just limited to partitioning your drive. There are tools for you
to defragment and free up vital space on your drives. Partitions can be copied and merged and if
you really want to get serious, Partition Manager can be used to format and wipe a drive
