I think everyone's seen pie charts -- they're popular because each "slice" shows its percentage of the total. And a pie chart is maybe a useful image to have in mind when talking about hard drive partitions -- for one slice to become larger, another slice [or slices] must become smaller. And that's where Macrorit Partition Extender Pro comes in...

From the opening paragraph of the app's web site or page: "... Partition Extender provides powerful features that enable users to extend system partition with unique data protection technology and best data moving algorithm..."

Why focus on "best data moving algorithm"? Because to extend a partition into a following partition's territory, that following partition has to be moved to make room, regardless its final size.

Macrorit Partition Extender Pro itself is a small app that installs to the Macrorit\ Partition Extender\ folder, with 3 files added to C:\Windows, & 2 to Windows\ System32, which includes a driver. That driver makes up the bulk of the added registry entries.

Whatever software you use, before doing anything with partitions I strongly suggest backing up with a full disk or individual partition image backups that you know you can restore, because s*** happens. And since I believe in that sort of backing up, I've not used partitioning software to move a partition in a decade+ --- I just delete the partition I want to move, extend the partition I want to extend, & restore the backup of the deleted partition in the remaining space. But that's me.

RE: Windows 10, & why it might not be a bad idea to have partitioning software installed...

The Anniversary Update will start to roll out August 2nd, & like the November 2015 update, it will be a complete new Windows install. While 10 works fine with a MBR formatted disk, Microsoft recommends a GPT disk formatted with 4 partitions. There were some people reporting problems when 10 came out, & again with that November update, with errors pointing to the 1st, boot partition being too small. Won't know if history repeats itself until after 8/2/16.

Windows 10 adds a Recovery wim file, which is an image file containing the basic stuff needed to perform a reset etc. -- it's stuck in a Recovery partition. Some of the Insider [Beta] builds of 10 added a 2nd Recovery partition, meaning ~500GB of wasted space. Again, won't know if it happens or how often until after 8/2/16.

Thanks for your comments, it's really helpful
To do backup is recommended before doing anything to disk partition, and it's also a good habit to keep safe at anytime, our Extender sometime may be a help to save time when data safety are assured while doing backup sometimes maybe time-consuming.

This one sounds to me like all it does is expand a partition? What about create, move, resize, format, etc? I will wait for a better one since the Win 10 one doesn't do what I need done.

NO, it does not only expand a partition, but also shrink partition, move free space and unallocated space automatically to extend partition, you can do more in Extender, and you can create, move ,resize, format and any other operations in Macrorit Disk Partition Expert, another all-in-one tool of Macrorit.

I agree with you and have also installed Mini Tools partition. Works great and can also resize your C drive, (bigger and smaller) which many of the other free patition program can not. Unfortunately, I have lost my code to the Mini Tools program, so when I made a partition change, the program ask me for a license.
I therefore look forward to the program will come back here as a Give away.

Used to be a big fan of Partition Magic, but I am not sure if they are still around or if they work on Windows 10 x64 systems. I tried it yesterday to try and create a partition on a Flash Drive (on XP Pro SP3) and it could not do it. A free program called Easus Partition Manager Free Edition was able to do it.

bruce,

Partitioning a USB stick is iffy... You might be successful, but since it's out of spec [USB sticks aren't supposed to have multiple partitions], you often can't fully use it. Many partitioning apps won't let you partition a USB stick then as a means of protecting you from doing something wrong.

Reply   |   Comment by mike  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

mike, The only reason I was trying to do that, as I was going to try using a USB Stick as Virtual RAM on an XP system. They suggest the USB should be no larger than 4GB but the smallest I had on hand was a 16GB unit. It looks like I can access the partitions ok after it was formatted. Also Partition Magic 8 (my version) is somewhat old, probably predating USB Memory Sticks

mike,
Any of the big-name partition utilities (e.g., Easeus, MiniTool, Paragon) will let you partition removable media like USB thumb drives or SD cards. But the real problem comes from the fact that Windows machines can't see more than one partition, i.e., the first one, on removable media. FWIW, most Linux flavors can see and access all the partitions.

Robert Garofalo,

Yes, I noticed that as well after I tried to partition it.
Not sure why that is the case. If the partition tool can see it
why not windows ? And it did not matter if the flash drive was set to FAT32 or NTFS .. same issue.

For one blissful moment I thought this could extend across volumes but all it does is extend a partition to the full capacity of the hard drive it's on. I was expecting a miracle. This serves no purpose other than to restore the partition to its original size.

Hi, I think you are talking about extend partition across disks not volumes, Extender can extends partitions on one disk. Dynamic disks can be used to extend partitions in different disks.
:)

Reply   |   Comment by Macrorit  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

col, you can add a partition from another NTFS volume into your C: drive effectively increasing the available storage on the C: letter by assigning the other partition to an empty folder on the C: drive as well as a normal letter to keep the recycle bin functionality using the built in disc management facilities!

If the folder you want to extend already has data in it, you place the new empty folder in the same parent folder assign the extra partition to the empty folder. Then copy over existing old folder contents to the new folder and rename the old folder to anything unique and rename the new assigned "folder" to the old folders name. Once you have confirmed everything still works as before and all data has been coppied over safely you can delete the old folder, freeing up space on your C: volume.

Some of the renaming may need to be done from safe mode or a live CD or winPE environment to ensure files in the folders are not in-use but it works well. I've used that technique to "extend" an old Asus EeePC with only 4G SSD using a 16G SDHC card custom formated into two NTFS partitions one to take the C:\Program Files heirachy and the other to take the C:\Documents and Settings heirachy. I had to use a hacked driver for the SD card to get windows to treat it as a USB hard disc and not a flash drive so it would see the partitions properly but it works just fine.

You are absolutely right of course. I was incorrect with my terminology. I was looking for a program that could span one volume across more than one disc. Thanks for putting me straight.

DL and installed effortlessly. The prog is pretty simplistic, but doesn't say whether this is any good at shrinking a partition, whch can be useful if one wants to have a safe sector for photos, vids, etc, if there is an emergency with your os, etc. I would incorporate some kind of backup option, as just like others have said, partitions are tricky things to work with if you do not know what you are doing. It also could use something that would tell you the partition type that you're working with (Fat *, NTFS, LDM, NTFT, etc) or expanding into, before you dive into it. I use Gparted as part of Pmagic, and have never had any issues with it at all. Pmagic now costs you a few dollars, but Gparted is freely available as a stand alone. I'm wary of this product due to it's very simplicity, and will stick with Pmagic. This simply (no redundancy intended) just doesn't seem to give you any control over just what it's doing other than just expanding a sector. Thanks, but I'm uninstalling.

Actually, free AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard is good at extending partitions. It allows you to merge two adjacent partitions every time, also you can use it to "resize partition" to reallocate the free space from one to another, both ways protect your data well. http://www.disk-partition.com/

jacksonX,

AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard "... allows you to merge two adjacent partitions every time"

For everyone that has not tried merging partitions, what happens is the contents of one partition are placed *in a folder* on the resulting partition.

"... both ways protect your data well."

Until it doesn't. ;)

When you're working with partitions, the possibility always exists that something will go wrong -- it's not common, but it can happen. At the least you're writing to the partition tables, & if those are lost/damaged you're in trouble. If/when you're moving data, besides copying data, which itself can introduce errors, when you're moving partitions the place where that data is to be written is not always free yet, so things can get more complicated, with more to go wrong.

That said, there are [or should be] integrity checks made along the way, so it's not as risky as I may make it sound. My point is simply that there is risk.

The download is a ZIP which also includes a portable version. Installed on my Windows 10 w/o problem. Have a quick look and find it has limited feature compared with some even free partition software such as AOMEI, GParted, Minitool). For example, it cannot merge two partitions, create a bootable CD, migrate OS to SSD, clone a hard drive, etc. It only extends a partition by taking free space from others.

I have been using AOMEI Partition Assistant free version for more than 3 years. I am happy and satisfied with its service. Yet it has not failed or created any nuisance on my system as well as on any of my friend's system during the basic operations such as creating, moving or resizing, merging of partition. Before I do any partitioning I always get the disk in the best possible condition, clear any junk, defragment the disk and check bad sectors. No idea if this is necessary but never had any problems when modifying partitions. In my experience AOMEI make really good solid programs that have never cause the slightest problem. I am also a big fan of their free backup software - AOMEI Backupper.

At last, I want to say that I had no such major issues with GParted as well. I'll rate both the partition tool 5 Star.

aomei maybe good in someway, but would you please tell me why would it reboot for many times? when i have many operations to run, for example, i first shrink D partition, then move the free space, and then extend C Drive, AOMEI will reboot for 3 times, Super slow!!!
why don't you just reboot once like other partition tools !!!

Kendrick,
Really good advice regarding preparing your disk before you do any partitioning, I have always done this and never had the slightest problem modifying the size of a partition.

My favourite program was given away here some time ago and it is MiniTool Partition Wizard, great interface, lots of functions, and easy to use.

Today's download has a nice clean interface also it is much more limited in its functionality.
Its claim to fame according to the developer is that even if something horrible happens during the partitioning process your data will be safe.

Really important if being done on a server and great for people who live in an area where power outages occur regularly.

From AOMEI's website, it states a reboot is necessary when:

*Shrink system and/or boot partition.
*Shrink a partition on which the page file or AOMEI Partition Assistant installation file is on.
*Shrink a partition where applications are running.

This is a common problem of all partition software. My experience are installing the program on C drive because I seldom shrink C drive and applying all operations in one time (not one by one).

Kendrick,

"Before I do any partitioning I always get the disk in the best possible condition, clear any junk, defragment the disk and check bad sectors. No idea if this is necessary..."

Getting rid of junk just means there's less data to deal with, so less time & because there's less work, a small reduction in risk. Defragging the disk/partition is good when it packs the data towards the beginning of the partition, because that maximizes the free space you have to work with when you want to shrink the partition. Note that not all defrag apps or strategies nowadays focus on packing everything towards the front of the partition.

Drive error checking is good, but stay away from the bad sector stuff in Windows, rather using the software provided by the disk manufacturer. For one thing disks have spare storage areas, so if that software finds a bad spot it can remap it to that spare storage.

Maybe more importantly, if Windows finds a bad sector it'll add that to the NTFS file tables, & it's EXTREMELY difficult to get rid of that. And until you do, quite a lot of disk software &/or functions will not work. AND, if you replace the disk, cloning the drive's contents, those errors will Still be there.

"... it states a reboot is necessary when:..

Regardless the OS you're using, files cannot be moved when they're in use.

To modify the partition where an OS lives, you have to run another copy of an OS. That can mean a bootable USB stick or CD/DVD with the partitioning software, or booting to essentially the same stuff on that USB stick only stored on the hard drive.

Nigel,
Thanks for your first comment, acctually, Partition tool is often used in companies and Server system,
The default Disk Management tool in Windows cannot solve partition problems under many situations.
Different traditional partition utility, Partition Extender can manage disk space with it's unique technology:disaster-protection; cancel at will technology build in,
FYI:
Disaster-protection: Protect your most important enterprise or personal data all the time even disaster happen during the operation process. You could even shut down or cut off the power by force during the process of resizing NTFS partition on Server.

Anyway, Safety is the first concern when extending.

Macrorit,

I agree. When in corporate use, you don't want anything to muck up.
You want bullet proof reliability.
No unpleasant surprises.
Macrorit rep here says it can protect the data /software on the hard disk even if the AC power is unexpectedly cut off during partiton resizing. That is very good.
