Best Free Windows 7 Partition Magic Manager
Windows 10 has been released for several years, but many people still use Windows 7. To both Microsoft and common users, Windows 7 is a milestone, which brings innovation in many aspects. To better use Windows 7, you need a partition magic software to manage disk partitions, such as create, format, resize, copy, convert disk partitions. In this article, I’ll introduce a free and magic partition manager for Windows 7 (32 and 74 bit).
Forget Norton Partition Magic
The most famous partition manager software is Norton Partition Magic, originally developed by Power Quest corporation, which was acquired by Symantec in 2003. May 5, 2004 – Partition Magic 8.0.5 was released under Symantec and this is last release. On December 8, 2009, the Symantec website states: “Sorry, we no longer offer Norton Partition Magic.”
Partition Magic is compatible with Windows NT, 98, ME, 2000, and XP desktop editions, so if you want to use it on Windows 7 and later editions, it is possible. Some people says “it doesn’t matter, I can create bootable disc”. If you also want to do like this, stop! Windows 7 boot manager is much different with previous editions, new technology such as GUID Partition Table (GPT) cannot be handled by Partition Magic. If you resize partition from bootable disc, it may cause system and partition damage. Fortunately, there is free Partition Magic alternative for Windows 7 – NIUBI Partition Editor Free.
