What the users says:
Partition Manager can redistribute free space from one partition to another without data loss. It's also able to merge and hide/unhide partitions, and convert a partition between different types (primary or logical) and file systems (such as FAT32 and NTFS).Paragon has bundled a simple backup wizard to image your data prior to making major changes. This is ideal if you're upgrading a hard drive and don't want to mess around with reinstalling anything. We liked the fact you can run the program from CD within Windows, so you don't need to clutter up your system be installing it.”
