If you buy a new computer with only one partition or if one of the partitions no longer meets your needs after a period of time, we then are eager to have a non-destructive partition tool to enlarge, delete, resize/move or merge partitions for Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1 as well as Windows 10. I heard of and was recommended to use Acronis Disk Director Suite, which was believed to be an almost perfect tool for managing partitions by one of my friends. Unfortunately, it is a commercial software and the price is relatively expensive and thus is not within my choice.
Well, what I recommend today is a totally free partition manager software, EASEUS Partition Master. It is a comprehensive disk partition management tool that can help you adjust and move partitions, create, delete and format partitions, hide partitions, copy disks and so on. The most important thing is, which is also what I care most, that most of the operation won’t damage the original hard disk or you will lose any data on it! In addition, EASEUS Partition Master supports almost all current running Windows computers like XP, Vista, Windows 7, 8/8.1 and the latest Windows 10. It also supports RAID disk array, and supports up to 8TB hard drive.
Free Lossless Partition Software for Windows 8 Windows 10
EASEUS Partition Master can run after Windows is started, and also allows you to create a bootable CD that lets you manage your partitions before Windows is loaded. You can delete or format the partition, you can also reset the partition size and move your partition. It allows you to reduce the size of an existing partition and then create a new partition with unallocated disk space or expand the size of another partition to better manage your data. In addition, you can browse the disk and partition properties, set an active partition, change the drive letter, etc.
Of course, the free personal version still has some limitations, such as the support of command line etc., but for most people, these are not a problem. Here is the comparison table between the free version with the paid version. It is worth mentioning that the new feature 4K Alignment is also supported in the free version.
It is undeniable that Acronis Disk Director Suite is really good with a great many of users. However, it seems, EASEUS Partition Master may be a better alternative. It is free after all!
EASEUS Partition Master also provides you the professional and server edition. For those who need RAID-5 volume repair can try the paid version.
