dotTech Advice

Ashraf has never reviewed Partition Manager Professional Edition. As partitioning software goes, it is one of the relatively few “free” ones that is easy enough on the eyes to be usable by actual people.  If you miss this giveaway, however, you won’t be disappointed by EASEUS Partition Master Home Edition, Ashraf’s favorite partition manager.

    I have manged to work out how to download it.
    Still would be interested in knowing whether it can run as a bootable CD ?

    The Editing ability on this forum is very flaky.
    I followed someone’s tip about opening Edit in another Tab.
    Then I returned here, and hit refresh.
    It did refresh my comment, however It would not let me do further Edit, even though there was time available.
    It was showing the edit ‘button’ but the countdown was not visible.

    @Fred:
    Can I create a bootable CD, so as to do my partitioning with Windows closed

    PS I have gone to their web page.
    I have subscribed to the newsletter.
    I have joined the forum
    But I cannot see the download button to download the program <==== ? ?

    Honestly though, I wouldn’t go for either unless I didn’t already have another partitioning product and suddenly had a serious need for one. That’s because, for me, Paragon beats all competitors hands down. And I know some of you may dislike that comment, but we’re all entitled to our own opinions.

    Don’t know if it’s just my end but seems to be a problem editing comments. Tried to edit my previous comment and screen just when black. Tried again and same thing. Then hit back arrow and got to edit it okay.

    Cheers,

    post #3 The Living Spirit –

    “…..it is easier to understand as a result.”

    Totally agree on that point. So for complexity/time challenged people like yours truly :) it is therefore the software to opt for.

    On another subject, while the software becoming available is not as prolific (which was so much so that it was almost overwhemlming) as it was last time Ashraf was around, the trickle is still good quality and much appreciated.

    Thanks Locutus for all your time and effort.

    Even with a gun held to my head, I would not do partitioning operations from within a running Windows.
    Can you create a bootable CD, and use that for partitioning ?

    If we were sending you to Mars, and you could only take one partitioning program, and it could only be one of these two –
    – Partition Assistant Pro Edition 3
    – EASEUS Partition Master Home Edition
    Which would you take ?

    Wow… talk about a blast from the past! In September 2010, I officially opened my own Technology Blog, but I’ve not talked about it here out of respect for Ashraf and dotTech – I don’t feel right in stealing other people’s momentum. But, in January 2011, Aomei actually approached MY blog also offering this very same giveaway – Free Aomei Partition Assistant Professional Edition Version 3.0. And they offered me a download of the program BEFORE the Giveaway date so I could review it prior to the giveaway going live!

    As neither Ashraf nor Locutus, nor anyone else who writes for dotTech, has ever got around to reviewing APAP themselves, I suppose I can indulge in a little shameless plugging while also offering a service to dotTech users. If you’d like to read a full overview of this Giveaway which goes into depth about many of the program’s features, check out my own post about this Giveaway back when it was first given away on January 25-28: http://www.technicallymotivated.com/2011/01/free-aomeitech-partition-assistant-professional-edition-limited-time-only/. I must admit it is not as detailed as I’d have liked because I was short on time, but it gives you a very good idea as to what the program is like.

    I didn’t include a rating in my blog’s post because it was a giveaway at the time – and the first my Blog had been approached specifically to advertise – so it would have been bad taste. But if I were to give it a rating now, then on the dotTech scale, I would give it a “Good” rating (one thumb up). This is mainly because it feels so similar to EASEUS but is more limited; however, it is easier to understand as a result.
