Allowing you manage and even recover your partitions
MiniTool Partition Wizard has a list of functions on the left of the GUI, the action/control buttons run along the top, and the right panel shows you what you are doing. The free version does most of what you need at home. The paid version offers extra functions such as changing cluster sizes, merging and aligning partitions and so forth. The free (and paid) version allow you to alter partitions or entire disks by allowing you to edit properties, label volumes, label partitions, change drive letters, check system files, align, move, delete, recover, join, hide, split, convert, copy and resize entire disks or partitions. It is possible to delete a partition and have this tool find and recover it for you.
A free tool with few flaws
MiniTool Partition Wizard has few flaws when you consider that it is a free tool. For example, Microsoft offers most of these tools on its own, and this tool doesn't support the management of dynamic disks. The most pressing flaw is that it has few safeguards for novice and intermediate users. A user may unknowingly destroy a lot of data through simple acts of ignorance. Obviously, this type of flaw will not affect advanced users.
