By using disk partitioning software, you can divide your hard drive into several areas so that they can be managed separately. Reinstalling Windows OS from scratch requires several partitions on the computer – one for system files and one for your personal files. With multiple partitions, you can also choose which data to backup.
As a leading disk and partition manager, AOMEI Partition Assistant can be used for many tasks that are unavailable or difficult within Windows itself, such as disk maintenance, cloning, migration, optimization, and cleaning.
Its numerous features include the ability to move or migrate an active Windows system to a new SSD drive, to resize, move, divide or merge existing partitions, to wipe hard drives securely, and to convert between primary and logical partitions or NTFS and FAT32 formats.
Aside from its core disk management capabilities, Partition Assistant also provides a wide range of handy tools, such as the “Windows to Go” creator, which allows users to install a customized version of Windows directly onto USB flash drives, a bootable media creator to access the operating system and fix issues preventing it from working normally, and a portable creator software that lets users install Partition Assistant directly onto USB flash drives to access it anywhere!
A solid disk management tool that offers plenty of functionality for no initial cost, while the Professional version adds some more advanced features for those who are serious about managing disks effectively and securely.
