Upon launching MiniTool Partition Wizard, you’ll encounter a detailed view of your hard disk drives and their partitions. The left-side pane offers various disk management commands, while right-clicking on drives or partitions provides additional options.
For demonstration purposes, the tutorial covers three attached hard disk drives. Deleting partitions, a common task, is showcased with a reminder to back up data before such operations. The “Undo” button helps rectify accidental commands. Deleted partitions leave unallocated space on the disk, requiring further actions to utilize it.
Creating a new partition on unallocated space is explained next. Right-click, choose “Create,” and specify details like label, type, drive letter, file system, and size. While formatting isn’t mandatory during creation, it’s essential to assign a drive letter.
Formatting a partition can be done at any time by right-clicking and selecting “Format.” Choose between NTFS and FAT32 file systems. Multiple tasks can be added and applied together for efficiency.
MiniTool Partition Wizard offers data recovery options. Access it by right-clicking on unallocated space and selecting “Data Recovery.” Whether you accidentally formatted or deleted a partition, this feature helps recover lost files through individual drive or entire HDD scans.
The tutorial delves into advanced operations such as resizing, extending, merging, splitting partitions, changing file systems, hiding/unhiding partitions, converting disk partition tables (GPT to MBR or vice versa), securely wiping disks, migrating operating systems, copying partitions, and cloning disks.
In this tutorial, we’ve covered an array of disk management commands available in the free version of MiniTool Partition Wizard. Whether you’re a novice or an experienced user, we hope you found this guide insightful.
