Disk utility stuck on updating boot support partitions
AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition has a lot more options that are out in the open (as well as hidden away in menus) than many other free partition software tools, but doesn't let that scare you away.
Some of the partition management features with AOMEI's tool are limited and offered only in their paid, professional version.
easy to find because you just have to right-click the device you want to manipulate.
As you perform these actions, you'll see the program update in real time to reflect them so that you can see how it will look when everything has been applied.
Simple wizards make it easy to walk through some of these tasks.
[email protected] Partition Manager includes other features, too, like imaging a whole drive for backup purposes, converting between MBR and GPT, creating FAT32 partitions as large as 1 TB, editing boot records, and rolling back changes by auto-backing up partition layouts.
The only downfall I can see with this program is that a few of the features require that you upgrade to a paid edition.
Like GParted, Cute Partition Manager doesn't run from within the OS.
Instead, you must install it to a bootable device like a disc or a flash drive.
This means you might sometimes try to open something in the free version only to be prompted to buy the professional one.
Editing a partition's size is easy because you can choose the exact size of the free space before and after the partition, using either a regular text box or a sliding bar to visually see the size increase or decrease.
