A couple of years ago I published a review of the home edition of EaseUS Partion Master. At the time I rated it as an excellent alternative to the more well-known brands.Now at version 9, I thought it was time to re-visit the software.

First of all, I should state that my original negative points have now been resolved. The GUI is a lot more slick (no more dodgy fonts) and the help is comprehensive.

As before, it is a simple way to modify and create partitions on your PC. The professional edition – required if you are a business – also comes with a few extra features such as the ability to resize dynamic partitions as well as an option to create a Linux boot disk of the software. In case you don’t have an OS installed or you’ve simply managed to mangle it, this is a great recovery aid.

As I’m sure you can imagine, it doesn’t just offer creation and moving of partitions – you can wipe them, convert them, merge them and, well, pretty much anything else you can think of.

It supports 64-bit versions of Windows and hard drives of over 2TB.

Any new gripes? Well, just one tiny one. There are buttons in the software for a Backup Tool and create a WinPE boot disk – both of these launch a browser page asking you to pay more for the features. I can understand this in the free version, but after paying out for the Professional edition I don’t think this is appropriate – I’d much rather have these options hidden.

There are other versions of Partition Master available too – each at a different price and with different options.

The Professional Edition currently costs just $19.99 (a little over £12).

[review]An incredibly well designed and powerful piece of partitioning software at a bargain price. If you’re a home user and don’t need the Linusx boot option then it’s free. But at $19.99 for the Professional Edition, it’s a bargain.[/review]
