dotTech Advice

AOMEI Partition Assistant is a nice partition manager, comparable to even EASEUS and Paragon at times. It also has the ability to copy partitions from one place to another, even across drives, and weighs in at under 3MB. A little over six months ago, Ashraf talked about a giveaway of AOMEI Partition Assistant v4.0, which still lacked some main features:

That said, Partition Assistant offers the basics and nothing more. Rival partition managers, such as EASEUS Partition Master and Paragon Software’s partition managers, offer more features than Partition Assistant, albeit at the cost of having to download larger files. Most notably, Partition Assistant works with only NTFS/FAT/FAT32 file systems — no support for Linux or Mac partitions; and Partition Assistant has no ability to great a recovery disc, neither WinPE or Linux-based. Personally speaking, if I were to pick between between Aomei Partition Assistant and EASEUS Partition Master or a Paragon partition manager, I’d pick one of the latter two. (It should be noted free/home editions of EASEUS and Paragon products cannot be used for commercial/non-home use.)

In version 5.1 AOMEI has fixed that to some degree. It brings support for ext2 and ext3 partitions, which are used by many Linux systems. It still doesn’t support ext4, which is the newest type of Linux partition, or HFS+, the standard Mac OS X partition type.

All together, AOMEI Partition Assistant isn’t bad, but it’s not the most amazing and featureful partition manager. Also of note, however, is that there’s really not much of a difference between APA Home and Professional: the only listed differences are preferential support and “workstation support”.

    Aomei must be installed in Win 7
    You then have to install MS’s WAIK (Windows Automated Install Kit)
    Ignore the Aomei instructions and use mine.
    If you wish your Windows 7 to be left pristine, then create an image first.
    An image is not necessary, but if you wish to remove Aomei, and WAIK, then restoring your image is the best way.

    Install Aomei
    Download the Win 7 WAIK ISO (using AOMEI’s download link)
    Burn that ISO to a blank DVD
    Use that DVD to install WAIK
    Run Aomei, and choose the make bootable CD
    That creates an ISO, that you have to burn to a CD
    For both of my ISO burns to optical discs, I used the inbuilt burn offered by Win 7’s right click context menu.

    If you wish to clear all that out of your Win 7, then restore your earlier created image.

    Before partitioning, I would create an image of your OS’s partition.
    If you search DotTech, you will find numerous preachings by me for the use of the free Seagate discwizard, and an external Dock. If you can, use an eSata connection. If you have to use a USB connection, make sure you verify the image (I always verify my images).
    You really should have a Seagate drive connected, but in a pinch you can use the Tech Override. When you get the messagebox saying it cannot see a Seagate drive, you press Alt to, and then click OK in the messagebox, to continue.

    @Rob (Down Under):
    Hi Rob,
    I am about to partition by hard drive. It will be the first time I have ever partitioned a hard drive, so I would be interested in any tips you would care to share. Thanks, Ken

  • Rob (Down Under)

    I have downloaded, and installed, and made a Bootable CD
    (Rob’s rules insist that all partitioning, and imaging be done from a bootable CD)
    It is a WinPE bootable CD, so you have to go through some steps to achieve this.
    If anyone is interested in my tips on how to do it, you should not wait too long, as I have 70/70 memory.
    My memory is 70 years old, and lasts for 70 minutes.

    @David: That report is of an older version of the program, as Locutus clearly states

    In any case, I havent tried this version myself but I doubt a 3.7 mb download includes bootable media.

  • Correction to your report – “and Partition Assistant has no ability to ‘great’ a recovery disc” – not so – Select ‘Wizard’ from the menu and voilà ! the last choice is ‘Make Bootable CD Wizard.”
