Partition Assistant Extends And Resizes Windows Partition

In Windows Vista and 7, you can go the Disk Management Console to manage your partition, but if you are looking for a much easier (and quicker) way to extend, move, resize your Windows partition, Aomei Partition Assistant is one good tool that you can use. (And yes, there is a giveaway for this great software, read on for more details)

Aomei Partition Assistant (APA) is a partition manager for Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7. It can resize and move partition, extend system drive, repartition, merge, split partition and so on.

On the main screen, you can click the “Extend Partition Wizard” link on the left sidebar to start the wizard. It will show a new window asking if you want to extend the system partition (C:) or other hard drive partition.

You can then follow the step-by-step guide to complete the partition extending process.

The Disk/Partition copy is also one useful feature. It can create a complete clone of your existing disk/partition so you can restore to it in the event that your main hard disk crashes. You can choose to copy only the used space of the disk, or a full clone of the entire disk.

Features such as resizing, creating new partition, moving, formating are also handy. There is even a check partition function where it can check the integrity of your disk.
