The safest partition manger for server
What is most important to a server? Data!
Few people know that there is potential system damage and data loss risk while modify disk partitions. For example, to change size of allocated partition, all parameters of associated disk, volume and files must be modified correctly, but some software error and hardware issue such as power failure could cause part of parameters failed to be updated. If it happens, system and data will be damaged.
NIUBI Partition Editor provide 3 innovative technologies to protect system and data.
1. Virtual mode
As you see the block 4 in the main window, all operations are listed as pending for preview. You can click Undo to cancel the unwanted operation or click Redo to recover the cancelled operations. The real disk partitions won't be changed until you click Apply button to confirm.
2. Cancel-at-well technology
If you confirmed and started the changes, other server partition software don't allow cancelling the ongoing operations from the beginning or over 50% progress even if you did something wrong.
Because the cancellation causes part of parameters can't be modified, which leads to system boot failure or partition damage. Thanks to the unique Cancel-at-well technology, you can cancel the ongoing operations at any progress with NIUBI Partition Editor. Everything will back to original status in a flash.
3. 1-Second Rollback
Better than other server partition manager, NIUBI Partition Editor provides another unique 1 Second Rollback technology to ensure system and data intact. If any software internal error or hardware issue such as power outage occur, it rollback the server to original status automatically and rapidly. If it happens, nothing will be changed.
With other partitioning software, if damage occur, you have to waste a long time to restore. If you have no backup, all precious data in the server will be lost.
The fastest Windows server partition manager
What is second important to a server? Keeping online!
Every server is equipped with backup software, but there is still a problem, what will you do if damage occur? Waste several hours even a whole day to restore and verify data, during this period, server is OFFLINE.
Sometimes when you shrinking a partition or moving the position of a partition, all files in this partition must be moved to new locations. A good algorithm is very helpful to reduce time, especially when there are large amount of files in this partition. Thanks to the special file-moving algorithm, NIUBI Partition Editor is 30% to 300% faster than other free and commercial partition manager.
You won't notice the performance difference if you don't compare it with other tools. If you have testing computer or virtual machine, simply compare it with other tools in same environment.
Some operations can't be executed in Windows desktop, then all partitioning software will reboot server to Pre-OS mode. In that case, the speed is particularly crucial, the faster it runs, the less offline time to the server.
