Review MiniTool Partition Wizard
MiniTool Partition Wizard is a tool that has been designed to allow us to create and manage all our disk partitions in case we are users with only basic knowledge on the subject and we require this service. Thanks to its functions, it is possible to create, delete or copy partitions on a hard disk without too many problems or waste of time, so let's analyze how it works.
In the first instance, this partition manager presents us with an initial window that invites us to know the news of its latest version, to go to the developer's website, or, why not, to see the partitions that our disk has. Of course, we immediately go to the last of the sections, inside which we will access a minimalist interface; very well done, which makes reading all the elements extremely simple.
You will then see that the program is available in English and Japanese. However, being a rather technical software with minimal knowledge, we can perfectly interpret what each of the functions is about. The menus are located at the top in horizontal format, as usual, while the main functions appear on the left side of the screen.
We can see then that the classic actions of this software have to do with the Convert disk , the Clean disk, or the Check disk . Each of these functions has other internal ones, among which we must also select. You can execute them one by one according to your needs, always establishing which partitions you want to operate at that moment.
Then the main section will appear, which is the one that usually interests in these cases, which offers the first data about each of the partitions, starting with the Name , and then adding others, such as the total capacity they have, the capacity that is being occupied at that precise moment, the space that we still have free, or what type of file system is the one that refers to each of the partitions.
Before talking about its compatibility and the main functions of this platform, you have to know regarding the interface that it is possible to customize it so that it adapts more to the type of view of the content you are looking for. From the View section, you can select which elements should be visible to the naked eye and which should not, and even as a flourish, it is possible to modify the font type and size with which the information is displayed.
In turn, MiniTool Partition Wizard supports NTFS file systems, as in our case, but FAT and FAT32, and although it is not bad, we believe that it could also be compatible with others absent.
Especially recommended is the Master Boot Record or MBR , a system designed to allow us to access a partition that, for some reason, has become inaccessible. In the same way, this service will allow you to make your disk partition invisible if you want nobody to have access to it. The simple operation of MiniTool Partition WizardMBR is an element that gives MiniTool Partition Wizard a leap in quality compared to many of its rivals.
At the same time, we had never been able to set partitions as the logical, primary, or active partitions of the system. MiniTool Partition Wizard has shown us that it is very easy to do so when software has been designed to assist us.
If you intend to change the drive letter of any of your partitions, you should know that this tool will also become a luxury ally since it allows you to perform this task in seconds without requiring any other program.
And if you are not completely sure about any action you will perform, you should know that, luckily, this program has an active function by default, which carries out automatic backups of the partitions. This means that if something has gone wrong during a procedure, you can return the partitions of your computer to the exact state they were in before you started.
What did we like most about MiniTool Partition Wizard? First, it's an easy-to-use program, even if you've never had any experience making or managing your disk partitions. Beyond that, you must remember that it allows you to generate backups before any action so that even if you make a mistake, you can recover what has been lost later.
On the other hand, we have already pointed out a real shame that it does not support more file systems than the ones we mentioned. At the same time, it is also a bit annoying -although understandable- that you have to restart the computer to notice changes or finish actions.
Finally, you should also know that MiniTool Partition Wizard has a version called Pro, payable, which adds some features, such as converting between file systems or recovering partitions that have been deleted for any reason. It costs $39 for a one-year personal license.
