Special ability of this free partition software
There are many free and commercial partition software including Windows based or Linux kernel based. The disk partition management functionalities are very similar, too. Then how this free partition software could be the best?
1. 100% free for home users
Different with other free partition software that locked many features and plans traps, NIUBI Partition Editor Free Edition is 100% free for all home users without any bundled ADs or plugins. If you want to create bootable media and enjoy the 1 Second Rollback technology, you may upgrade to Professional Edition. Except the two points, everything else of free edition are absolutely the same with Pro edition. In addition, the vendor provides the same free 24*7 live support with the paid versions.
2. 30% to 300% faster
If you don’t compare these tools in same environment by yourself, you won’t notice the performance difference. For example, when you shrink D to extend C drive, all files in volume D should be moved to new locations, so the more file in it, the longer time to complete resizing volumes. Because of the special file-moving algorithm of NIUBI, Partition Editor Free is 30% to 300% faster than any other program including the commercial partition software. Most of other paid partition program can only move 30MB to 50MB files per sescond, so it costs about 3.5 hours to resize D drive with 500GB files in it. Why not use a program that is much faster?
3. 1Second Rollback
What’s it? It is innovative technology in disk partition management industry. NIUBI Partition Editor is the only Windows partition software that realize this unique and useful technology. With this technology, if any software error or hardware issue occur while re-partitioning disk drive, NIUBI Partition Editor can automatically roll back the computer to original status in ONE second. If it happens, nothing will be changed or lost.
You’ll waste a long time to restore everything with backup software if damage occur. Better than the traditional method, NIUBI Partition Editor can back the computer online without damage rapidly.
However, this 1 Second Rollback technology is integrated in paid version as I said above, but it is equal to pay little money for the innovative and wonderful feature, right?
