Partitioning of a hard drive is when you take a single physical hard drive and divide it into logical partitions or sections. For example if you have a 500GB hard drive you can have one partition that takes up the whole 500GB such as your C drive. Or you can divide it into 2 or more partitions such as a 300GB C drive, a 100GB D drive and a 100GB E drive totaling 500GB.

Windows has built in tools such as Disk Management that will let you create and adjust partitions but it can't do certain things such as resize your C (Windows) drive without deleting the data. This is where 3rd party tools like EASEUS Partition Master comes into play.

EASEUS Partition Master is a comprehensive partitioning software package which provides you with a convenient user interface simplifying your tasks and enables you to configure and manage the partitions of your hard drives.

EASEUS Partition Master allows you to create and delete partitions on your hard disk quickly and easily. The best part of the software is that it can resize/move your partitions by using the free space available on your drive.

Here are the main features of EASEUS Partition Master:

  • Resize/ Move partitions
  • Create partitions
  • Delete partitions
  • Delete all partitions
  • Label partitions
  • Format partitions
  • Check partitions
  • Partition scheme
  • Create bootable disks
  • Copy partitions
  • Copy disks
  • Copy dynamic volumes
  • Convert partitions
  • Explore partitions

 

This is the main program interface which shows all the drives and partitions in your system.

Here is a screenshot of the Resize/Move Partition feature which shows how easy it is to choose how much to resize your drive simply by sliding the bar or entering a value into the Partition Size field.

You can also use the software to find out information about your hard drive such as usage, partition and NTFS information.

EASEUS Partition Master supports the following file systems: FAT12, FAT16, FAT32 and NTFS and the following hard drive types: IDE, SATA, SCSI, USB removable hard disk, and Firewire up to 2 TB in size.
