Best partition manager for resizing Windows

The size of data grows day by day and thus the need to extend the requirements also increases in the same manner. To store all your enormous data on a single disk is very confusing and will create chaos while you are searching for any specific file. To be traditional in terms of storing the data over your desktop, it is highly recommended that you should create different partitions, be it Windows or OS X. To move ahead, we should know why is partitioning important.

Ignorance of creating multiple partitions often leads people to suffer data loss on their drive and thus their data goes at once. Thus, it is highly suggested to do multiple partitions on your drive and manage them according to your needs, such as resize, delete, create and joining of the two partitions.

Importance of Partitioning:

  • Avoids data loss all at once
  • Optimizes hard drive’s ability and efficiency

Prior to these advantages of partitioning we have coined the word “manage the partitions” and this means to as resize, delete, create and merge them according to your needs.

Resize: A user might want to extend or shrink the storing capacity of the partition.

Delete: In case of non-requirement of any partition, the user may delete it.

Create: A new classification of files and folders may be required at any time, so a new partition is created.

Merge: The head-to-head partitions can be joined or fused together by using these functions.

All these features are highly required and thus, we need partition manager software that can perform all these demands according to the necessities of the user.

But, first we will look upon the in-built partition management tool available in Windows and OS X. In case of Windows, Microsoft did a good job of hiding the built-in partition manager, but it’s there and is known as Disk Management Tool (all without downloading or paying for any other software). But it has some extending and shrinking limitations and it cannot resize the partitions.

In case of Mac OS X, the default tool for volume management is Disk Utility. The partition of only one drive or volume at a time is supported by Disk Utility, which is the major limitation.

Now, to overcome all these limitations, we need a 3rd party partition manager that can perform all the tasks without any limitations.

We should keep these points in mind while choosing for a partition manager:

  • Installs more than one operating system on a single computer
  • Should have a boot manager to operate and manage several operating systems
  • Should let the user to let preview the changes before they are applied to the hard drive
  • Organized user-interface
  • Should have an online help assistant

Now, we will look upon the free and paid partition managers for Windows:
