The built-in Disk Management tool in Windows 7 hasn’t changed much from the Vista days and is still missing some of the most important and basic features such as the ability to re-partition an existing primary system partition without having to reinstall Windows. Maybe Microsoft thought that it was good enough and didn’t require any update or maybe they wanted to leave such features for the third party software’s to fill in. Whatever the case maybe, I was really baffled when I couldn’t do this basic task from the included Disk Management tool in Windows 7. Then I found out about Partition Wizard that worked like a charm on my Windows 7 x64 installation. It is free, fast and does the job extremely well. What else do you want from a free tool?
