Partition Wizard Free 11.4
Partition management just got easier with Partition Wizard.

Was it so long ago that partitioning your hard drive involved either losing all the data on it, or investing a hefty sum in specialist partition software? These days, you can resize partitions without data loss within Windows itself, so what’s the need for a specialist tool?

Take one look at MiniTool Partition Wizard and you’ll see your answer: first, it makes partitioning much simpler and friendlier than the Windows tool. Second, it’s much more flexible than Windows’ rather basic tool.

First, you’re not restricted by any fragmented or unmovable files on your drive when it comes to resizing an existing partition. You can also easily resize, move, extend and split partitions, allowing you to revamp your drive just about any way you please without having to rip it all up and start again.

You’ll find other handy tools too – copy partitions and entire disks to another drive (great when upgrading your drive due to a lack of space), plus switch partitions from primary to logical to bypass the partition table limits (you can also convert in the other direction too). You can even align a partition for better performance if it’s required.

You can also hide partitions, change their serial number and perform all the key tasks – assigning drive letters or deleting partitions – offered by Windows own Disk Management tool. There’s even a tool for wiping a partition securely, allowing you more thoroughly delete the data from it.

A lot of this functionality can be found in other free partition tools too, but Partition Wizard keeps adding new features to its free version to keep it ahead of the opposition – you can now convert back from NTFS to FAT, plus convert drives between GPT and MBR. It’s even possible to copy dynamic disk volumes too.

And before you come up for air, you’ll even find Partition Wizard is capable of recovering lost and accidentally deleted partitions too – perfect for cleaning up after another tool’s mistakes, or giving you a fall-back option should Partition Wizard itself fail to perform the tasks at hand.

All of this functionality is accessible from Windows, but you may find some operations won’t work until you reboot your machine. We’d also recommend you obtain the free bootable CD version (click the Bootable CD link in the program itself), which will give you access to all its functions (via the same user-friendly interface) even if Windows refuses to boot.

For most people, the free version has all the functionality you’ll ever need, but there are a number of paid-for editions too with additional features such as merging partitions or changing a drive’s cluster size without data loss.

What's new in version 11.4 (see upgrade history for more)?

- Add French language
- Enhance Data Recovery feature to support previewing 70 file types

Verdict:

Utterly indispensable – Partition Wizard Free is the best free partitioning tool there is for Windows, period.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
