Hello there.

Here are some best choices:
free- partition wizard, gparted,
trial/buy-Paragon partition manager, Acronis disk director.
I'd recommend partition wizard.

I would suggest the Partition Wizard Boot Disk (PWBD) the installable version has certain issues that the boot disk doesn't seem to have; download the PWBD ISO file to the desktop, be sure to get the PWBD and not the installed version; scroll down to see the download link for the bootable CD ISO file at this link below.

Partition Wizard Free Bootable CD



Here's tutorial that will give you some ideas of the uses at the link below.

I think you get the idea - PW is the ultimate.

PW CD: Hundreds of complicated partitioning operations here without fail.

Others: Regularly reported failures with data loss, especially Easeus.

Greg, for the record I have to report that I once wiped out a whold disk with PW. But that was my own stupidity. Fortunately I had images of most everything (2 data partitions, 1 Vista partition and a Vista recovery partition which was the only one where I only had the DVDs).

That is why I highly recommend to always take images of ALL partitions on a drive that you are about to manipulate.

I never had any issues with Easeus - are you sure they were using recent version?

User error is likely also.

I don't think they do a boot disc with the free easeus - which is a shame.

I have a higher edition of Easeus - works beautifully.

The best free one is probably PW - they do a Pro version - good for the money.

If you really want something serious - Paragon - you need to go for Pro or higher - not cheap.

Was it the PW CD? Home Edition has had a few failures I've seen but never the CD version which does the work virtually before applying it. (So does the Home Version but the OS can interfere.)

+1 on backing up which must be done on any partitioning or repair operation.

It was the program on my win7 system, not the CD.
