MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition 8.1 Review
We at TNF (tipsnfreeware) have already reviewed two excellent product from Minitool.
Today we review the updated version of Minitool disk Partition Wizard Home Edition version 8.1.
With the availability of larger Hard disk, we need to partition our hard disk, not only to optimize performance but also utilize the huge space optimally. Almost all windows users turn to built in windows disk management utility. But windows provides with very minimal tools for disk management. Like deletion of partition, create partitions, shrink, and format partitions.
But if you need to do some advanced disk management, like copy partition, wipe partition etc. We need a standalone dedicated tool.
Minitool disk Partition Wizard Home edition is such a tool, which gives you all the advanced options as far as disk management is concerned. A very easy to use tool, which a Home and individual user can easily perform complex hard disk management with ease.

3: After installing when you open the tool for the first time, you will see a window of the program interface as above.

You don really need to be a professional to use this tool.
4: A remarkable feature I have found that, it has Power-Off protection mode. Which essentially protects your data in the event of sudden power outage. Your data is protected and prevent the user executing the operation. You can also preview the changes, before actually performing the operations, so you can correct any mistakes. That’s a cool feature.
