Main Features of MiniTool partition wizard
There are many things you can do with the MiniTool partition wizard. A look at the interface above will tell you what all options are available. I will talk about the some features that interested me when reviewing the application.
The first features itself is interesting. You can move the entire operating system or system disk to another disk without damaging the files and data loss. I am yet to imagine a scenario where this function can be put to use, but it is interesting to have the feature handy.
You can move the operating system and program files to other hard disks. The operating system works normally after moving. but there are two notes: If you are transferring your OS or OS’ disk to SSD, it is highly recommended to Align partitions to 1MB option, which can improve disk performance. And if you want to copy disk to GPT disk, Use GUID Partition Table for the target disk option is the Professional Edition or an advanced one is available.
Merge partition is yet another interesting features that MiniTool partition wizard provides. You can merge two adjacent partitions without any loss of data. For example, you can merge drive E with D or F: the succeeding and preceding partitions. All you need to do is to select E, click on Merge partition and then select a partition succeeding or preceding it.
Among other features that you can use is to move/resize partition is capable of changing partition size and location in Windows with ease, and explore partition. The tool has a built-in explorer that helps you explore the selected partition ease. You will view all the system and hidden files too in addition to normal files.
There is extensive documentation on their website that can be triggered using the Help menu. The documentation also has video files showing you how to use the different options, so it is easy for anyone to get familiar with the program.
