Esay to use, powerful, reliable, and free for home use

about MiniTool Partition Wizard and Clonezilla, DriveImage XML · · Helpful Not helpful

MiniTool Partition Wizard kinda saved made my life many times. Everytime I needed to migrate my boot drive, mostly. It is so easy. You use its Copy Disk Wizard, it takes care of all the rest, even resizing the new system partition. Even if you do it from your old system partition, it offers to seamlessly do the migration upon reboot.

It never failed on me, it's more simple and/or user-friendly than the famous DriveImage XML, or Clonezilla or other clone tools I could try, it looks like it's SSD-aware (I could see a checkbox for some SSD option), so I heartily recomment Minitool Partition Manager.

Partitions destroyed

about MiniTool Partition Wizard · · Helpful Not helpful -1 Helpful

Minitool managed to destroy ALL my existing partitions when all I wanted was to hide one partition.
Blue screen of death.

I needed to boot in dos, using Testdisk to recover 3 of 5 partitions.
Using data recovery tools I could get my files from the other 2 partitions back.

But it was a case of disaster, I never once experienced with any other partition software.

Pretty clearly user error. ive been using Minitool for years and never had this issue. the only time Minitool game me ANY error was when i stupidly tried to convert an MBR Disk to GPT. while my Swap file was on the disk.

Windows 10 cloning works

about MiniTool Partition Wizard · · Helpful Not helpful -1 Helpful

I used the free Version.

In contrast to the Windows diskmanagement I was able to clear my secondary drive. Moving and resizing of partitions is no Problem, if necessary it reboots and does the Job in a pre-OS Environment. Formatting a Partition can be done with all common file Systems (NTFS, ext4, SWAP, FAT32, FAT)

Most notably I was able to clone my Windows 10 disk to my SSD. Samsung Magician failed and Windows Backup didn't do what I wanted. I tested it all, it works perfectly fine.

I got a USB Stick back, that wouldn't be recognized by other Format Tools: I formated it and the Problem was solved.

THX for the comment M8 - exactly what I'm looking for. =)
