Use the full capacity of your hard disk! The Partition Manager offers extensive functions for flexible partitioning, optimization and administration of your computer. Whether you want to restructure and partition your hard disk, redistribute free space, use multiple operating systems on your PC simultaneously, or work with virtual disks, Partition Manager is a first-class partitioning tool with powerful extra features.
The Partition Manager is available in three editions: the free edition offers basic functions for all those who do not need everything. The home edition is THE standard software for partitioning hard disks without data loss. The professional edition is the solution with extended functionality for professionals.
Partitioning - fast and without data loss
With Paragon Partition Manager you can perform all partitioning tasks easily and without data loss. Do you have everything on C:, in a single large partition? Operating system, own files, applications, games... The extremely powerful partitioning engine helps you to divide your hard disk into clearly arranged areas (partitions) in no time at all and ensures that the available space on the hard disk is used optimally.
With the help of convenient partitioning functions, you can manage the partitions on your hard disk easily and efficiently. For example, if you want to create a new NTFS partition, the program wizard will create it with the best possible use of available resources (automatic alignment). It is just as easy to enlarge, shrink, move, delete partitions or recover accidentally deleted partitions.
Security for data and more flexibility
Splitting a hard disk into at least two partitions brings advantages in terms of data security. If you store the operating system, applications and data on different partitions, you are on the safe side when a new installation of Windows or the restoration of a backup or image is necessary: Your data is protected in the separate partition.
At the same time, partitioning your hard disk allows you to set up an efficient data organization, individually tailored to your purposes. The division into smaller drives increases both the clarity and the speed of access to the contents.
Use several operating systems on the same computer - why not? Simply set up appropriate partitions and install the various operating systems in parallel on the PC. Each operating system requires its own correctly created and formatted partition.
Complex partitioning - made easy
Even if it gets more complex - the comprehensible program wizards guide you quickly and safely to your goal! Do you have a lot of space on one partition, while there is never enough space on the neighbouring partition? Redistribute unused space and set the partition size according to your needs.
Or do you want to split one large partition into two small ones? Then you decide which files and folders should be moved to the new partition, redistribute free space if necessary - and that's it! And merging partitions works just as easily.
The Professional Edition offers a suitable solution for almost every question. Be it converting MBR basic disks to GPT basic disks and vice versa, changing primary slots to put partitions in the correct order in the partition table, or changing partition attributes.
Increase hard disk and system performance
The powerful partitioning tools of the Partition Manager ensure an optimal hard disk structure. The operating system can process data more efficiently if the physical hard disk is divided into a number of logical drives, each with its own drive letter and volume name.
Automatic partition alignment** ensures that disks are not slowed down by misaligned partitions. The software already aligns the partitions correctly during partitioning (Alignment) and thus optimizes the performance of the hard disk sustainably. Optimally configured partitions bring speed to all file system operations! The performance difference between incorrectly and correctly aligned partitions can be up to 300%!
By the way: Thanks to the automatic partition alignment you always get the maximum performance out of SSDs, hard drives with 4-K sectors and RAID volumes.
Security plus through proven technologies
With the unique Paragon Smart-Partition™ technology you can safely perform your partitioning without losing even a single byte of data. Paragon Power Shield™ (Power Failure Protection) ensures that even in the event of a power failure, no errors creep in and critical operations continue once power is restored.
Built-in Paragon Backup features allow you to create a backup before hard disk editing - on the fly and without rebooting. Should an operation not have worked as planned, no problem. The recovery wizard will get your system up and running again quickly.
Backups can also be created as virtual hard disks that you can use as the foundation for virtual machines. With the Professional Edition you can then edit the virtual hard disk directly!
Paragon Rescue Medium
The new Rescue Disk Configurator 3.0 makes it easy and flexible to create your personal rescue environment on an external disk. When the operating system stops booting, you can boot the PC with the Paragon bootable rescue environment and back up important data or fix boot errors. With the Home Edition you create the rescue media based on Linux/DOS; with the Professional Edition you can create USB or .iso rescue media based on both WinPE and Linux.
**Automatic alignment of partitions is always active when partitions are created or moved and during copy and restore operations with resizing. For the redistribution of free space, it is only active if the left partition boundary is included.
