The Standard Edition of AOMEI Partition Assistant is a free all-in-one partition and hard disk utility with all the functions you will ever need to resize, move, merge, migrate, recover, expand, create, delete, or format your HDD partitions, among other interesting tools. The program has wisely included some wizards, so that all users can make use of its most popular functions.

These wizards will help you to extend your partitions, make copies of your disks and partitions, migrate your operating system to a new SSD or HDD, recover your partitions, create a bootable CD, convert NTFS file systems into FAT32 and vice versa without any data loss, and create a Windows 8 bootable USB drive with the program’s Windows To Go option. Though these features alone are enough to beat many other partition software tools, AOMEI Partition Assistant’s functionality doesn’t end here.

The program offers specific utilities to resize, move, split, copy, create, and delete partitions, all of them suitable for all types of users thanks to the intuitive and simple instructions that will guide you through all of these processes. These always sensitive tasks are performed in such a way that none of your data will ever be lost or damaged in the process. This will allow you, for instance, to expand or shrink a given partition without migrating or backing up its data first, or to migrate your operating system to a new hard drive or Solid State Drive without installing everything from scratch.

The program comes also with other interesting and useful functionality that will surely help you manage your disk partitions. Thus, you can change drive letters, convert between file systems (NTFS and FAT32) and disk types (MBR and GPT), set the active partition, and hide, align, check your disks for bad sectors, initialize disks, or even wipe specific disks or partitions in a snap.

I find it hard to think of a disk/partition management task that AOMEI Partition Assistant cannot perform. However, if you happen to spot one, you can always upgrade to any of the five editions in which this comprehensive application comes – Lite, Professional, Server, Unlimited, and Technician – as it is surely supported by at least one of them.
