The extrusive benefit of hard drive partition is about hard drive maintenance. It lessens wear and tear of your drive, although hard drives are durable. Another benefit of hard disk partition is in file organization. Files are much easier found if we have a partition for it. As I have 3 partitions in my hard disk. System C for my program files, another for my important and personal files, and the last for multimedia such as audio and video. When I have to format my system partition interrupted accidently, I would not worry about multimedia and data files in other partitions.
Though Partition Assistant Standard Edition is a free partition manager designated for home user only, it supports 32 bit and 64 bit Windows operating systems including Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. As a Windows XP user, I was fed up with the limited system partition function. With the less expanded partitioning abilities of Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8, Partition Assistant is so value to us.
The free partition manager contains basic partition functions, which offering options: Create Partition, Delete and Resize Partition. Though that may seem weaker than its Partition Assistant Professional Edition and Partition Assistant Server Edition, it really satisfies my common requirement like extend partition. It allows me to manage partition, redistribute disk space easily; it also performs more complicated partition operations you can imagine on hard disk. Resize and Move Partition, Shrink Partition and Extend Partition, Merge and Split Partition, all play as Partition magic.
For instance, I take the Resize function on basic disk. I want to extend system C 1 gigabytes to 3 gigabytes. At first, I shrink partition D out unallocated volume 2 gigabytes. Next system C takes up the unallocated volume 2 gigabytes. So you will find these complex operation so easy to solve. It's indeed convenient for common users act as a whizz at disk partition management field.
