For most of the Windows Server users do know that Diskpart is included in versions of the Windows NT operating system line from Windows 2000 onwards. But do they completely know how to use Diskpart? Still, Diskpart is geeky and complicate to most people. Thus we need to manage our partitions in an easier way with an appropriate third party like partition magic for Windows Server 2008 R2. AOMEI Partition Assistant is also a competent partition software. Windows Server 2003, 2008 (R2), 2012 (R2), 2016, 2019 users will be satisfied with the functions it includes.

To partition a hard drive, Windows Server 2008 R2 disk management has some restrictions. Meanwhile, AOMEI Partition Assistant offers the users an easy way to manage the partitions without such restrictions. It can automatically move the unallocated partition right next to the target partition to realize the extension. The shrink/extension operation is risk free. The users don’t need to worry about their data safety.

The users can also find GPT/MBR conversion function in AOMEI Partition Assistant. It is not easy to convert the type of disk between MBR and GPT due to some technical problems. AOMEI Partition Assistant allows the user to convert GPT to MBR and vice versa. Like resizing operation, this process is safe too.

The partition alignment greatly influences the performance of SSD. If the partitions are not aligned, the performance of the SSD may be dropped by up to 15%. The partition alignment can be achieved with AOMEI Partition Assistant.

Another key feature of AOMEI Partition Assistant is Primary/Logical partition conversion. For those who initially created four primary partitions and now needs to create more partitions, this functions is very helpful. The primary partition can be converted to a logical partition without losing any data.

All in all, AOMEI Partition Assistant is very powerful and mature partition software like partition magic. Windows Server 2008 R2system partitions can be managed in an efficient and convenient way with AOMEI Partition Assistant. Comparing to the question such as “which is better? Windows Server 8 vs Windows Server 2008”. the answer to “which is better? AOMEI Partition Assistant vs Windows Server Disk Management/Diskpart” is way more obvious.
