Partitioning & Optimization

Create partition, format partition, assign drive letter
The Create Partition Wizard creates a new partition in the most appropriate place of your hard disk, formats it to NTFS and then makes it available in the system by assigning a drive letter

Move, resize, delete partitions
The move/resize partition function allows you to resize or change location of any partition without destroying its data. The delete partition wizard helps you accomplish the deletion of a partition.

Split partitions
Separate different types of data by splitting one partition into two different partitions of the same type and file system

Merge partitions
Consolidate disk space from two adjacent partitions (NTFS, FAT16/FAT32) into a single, larger partition

Redistribute Free Space
Increase free space on one partition by utilizing the unallocated on-disk space and the unused space of other partitions

Undelete partitions
The Undelete Partition Wizard helps to find and recover any accidentally deleted partition

Automatic partition alignment1
Partition Alignment is the process of adjusting location of partitions on a hard drive according to its internal geometry. It may considerably increase performance on SSD, AFD and non-512B sector size disks

Convert file system
Convert file system enables to safely change a file system type of an existing partition: FAT <> NTFS or HFS <> NTFS

Convert dynamic to basic MBR disks
Convert a dynamic MBR or GPT disk containing simple volume(s) into a basic MBR disk

Convert Basic MBR to Basic GPT and vice versa
Enjoy all benefits of the newest partitioning scheme with minimal effort
