Windows 7: Partitioning with Windows 7

Partitioning with Windows 7

Has anyone use Partition Wizard 4 for doing partitioning operations in 7? It looks good and is offered Free for home use and also works with Vista. I looked at Disk Management and it appears clunky and incomplete and difficult.

Yes. When I upgraded to Win7 I was left with a small D: partition that was no longer needed for restore files. I deleted it with Partition Wizard and resized C: to take up the slack. I didn't find it very intuitive, but when I'd watched the website videos it made more sense. It worked perfectly. The .iso file version to make a Partition Wizard boot disk might well be handy too, so I've burnt it to disk - hoping never to need it!

Regards,

Bob

I have used Partition Magic for years and I like the graphic interface and Partition Wizard is nearly the same in most respects. Easy to use and understand and it works great. I just resized my C: drive from 186 GB down to 100GB and it did so in 12 minutes. Worked fine for me.

In all fairness Disk Management lacks a lot of features that can be found in 3rd party tools...
It's been this way for awhile.
