Easeus Partition Master 6.1.1 Professional for Free till 22/10

Firstly, I know most people will never need this for any reason what so ever, unless you already have a fair amount of knowledge about computing. At which point you would already have your own favourite.

Having said that, the main point of this, is you can make a bootable CD...so if you do need to partition (divide/seperate) your drive into smaller drives, you can do it much more safely by booting outside of Windows and doing it.

Why would you want to divide your partitions...well for me the reason I do it, is to seperate my data from my programs. So my C drive has Windows and Programs and the like, and then I save al my data to another drive. The reason for this, is to to make backup easier. I only have to backup my C drive as my data 99% of the time is disposable or does not change. This keeps the backups nice and small, as its only my windows drive.

If something screws up your windows drive and you have to reinstall, then having your data on a seperate partition would also be very helpful indeed.

Having said all that, I still maintain that most people won't need or want this, I am just posting it up on the off chance someone does

The main difference between this and the free version is this one you can create a bootable cd and it supports 64bit Operating systems.

For a comparison of the free and the professional:


EASEUS Partition Master Professional Edition is an ALL-IN-ONE partition solution and disk management utility.

Moreover, you can create bootable CD/DVD in case of system boot failure.

Partition Manager utility for better hard disk management and computer performance maximization.
New! Partition Recovery Wizard to perform PC disaster recovery to save data.
Copy Wizard to copy partition or migrate entire hard disk to another without Windows system reinstallation.


Most Linux Live CDs have GParted on, which as far as I can tell does most of the things this does and is always free. This probably doesn't support as many file systems either. But I suppose as you say it's personal choice.

Another vote for gparted, windows 7 partitioner is decent enough for most users too

Even better, System Rescue CD, open source (always free), comes with many partitioning and volume managment tools, can create compressed backups (even to another computer) of partitions which can then be reinstalled should anything go wrong. If you're familiar with Norton ghost, it can do this sort of thing with the many tools included:

* GNU Parted: creates, resizes, moves, copies partitions, and filesystems (and more).
* GParted: GUI implementation using the GNU Parted library.
* Partimage: popular opensource disk image software which works at the disk block level
* ddrescue: Attempts to make a copy of a partition or floppy/Hard Disk/CD/DVD that has hardware errors, optionally filling corresponding bad spots in input with user defined pattern in the copy.
* FSArchiver: flexible archiver that can be used as both system and data recovery software
* File systems tools (for Linux and Windows filesystems): format, resize, and debug an existing partition of a hard disk
* Ntfs3g: enables read/write access to MS Windows NTFS partitions.
* sfdisk: saves / restores partition table (and more).
* Test-disk: tool to check and undelete partition, supports reiserfs, ntfs, fat32, ext2/3 and many others
* Memtest+: to test the memory of your computer (first thing to test when you have a crash or unexpected problems)
* Rsync: very-efficient and reliable program that can be used for remote backups.
* Network tools (Samba, NFS, ping, nslookup, ...): to backup your data across the network

Nice find. Been using this for a few months now and I think it's great. Very easy to use and it's fast. Also handy if you want to create a new partition to try out a different OS such as a free 30 day trial of W7. Once you've finished, you can always resize your hard drive back to its original state.
