I am pleased they responded so quickly and made anew version.


Bit disappointed it is still doing things the old way.

I kind of expected they would update it.

Oh well - you can't complain - it's free.

If you want a full on partitioner - you can't beat Paragon - you would need Pro version and it's not cheap - but it is the best. ( Paragon free partition manager version is very limited ).

There is a way to get the best of both worlds for free.

Use Paragon Backup and Recovery 11 ( B&R 11 free ) for creating partitions - you get proper alignment and nt6 disk and boot code ( only paragon does that ).

Replace settings.xml in B&R 11 program folder with this one settings.zip

However, because it is ostensibly a backup app. - it doesn't include extra functions such as convert logical to primary and partition undelete - so use Partition Wizard if you ever need those functions.

The bootable iso's interface has been swapped around but yet the windows programs interface is the same.ODD

They only changed the layout its all reversed written drive details are at the bottom whilst the graphical disk usage at the top.
