AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition lets you manage your hard drives with ease, regardless of your prior experience and, if you know your way around, advanced features like file system converters are at your fingertips. Alternatively, you can choose to be walked through several common operations with the help of step-by-step wizards.
Eight wizards: Despite its advanced nature, AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition comes with eight step-by-step wizards that will walk you through a few common disk operations. Some of the options include making a copy of your disk, extending a partition, creating a Windows To Go disk, and a partition recovery wizard.
Disk copy: The app offers the ultimate backup method -- cloning one drive, so it has the exact same data as another one, down to the very last bit. There is even an option to copy the information in the sectors where there is no visible data -- a great way to save files from a dying or corrupted hard drive.
Windows To Go creator: We were very impressed with the fact that you can create Windows To Go installations with the app; Windows To Go essentially allows you to boot Windows installed on a thumb drive from any PC. Note that at least a 16GB thumb drive is required for this operation.
Cannot queue operations: Each operation needs to be completed before you can begin the next one. The rule applies even if the two operations are carried out on two separate disks.
Buggy MBR to GPT converter: When we tested the MBR to GPT converter on a thumb drive with no partitions, we discovered a bug where the app won't recognize the converted thumb drive, even though the Windows Disk Manager and later My Computer do. We were able to fix the issue by repartitioning the thumb drive using Disk Utility on Mac OS X.
Have you just bought a new hard drive for your PC and are looking for the most painless way to migrate your Windows installation and all of your personal data? AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition is well-suited to handle your case as well as numerous others.
