With hard drives now larger than ever before, it makes sense to split them up into a number of partitions. This provides the opportunity to install multiple operating systems - such as different versions of Windows, or perhaps Linux - on a single hard drive, and also means that it is easy to keep files and documents separate from your operating system.
Paragon Partition Manager makes it easy to re-structure your hard drive into whatever number of partitions you need using a simple interface that can be accessed from within Windows or by running the program from bootable media. With two interface modes - easy and advanced - the program caters to different levels of ability. Those who want to simply create a simple partitions need not be distracted by more advanced options, but anyone wanting to perform more involved partitioning tasks can easily access these settings by switching modes.
When creating a multi-boot system, the program includes a number of boot management features that can be used to manage operating systems and fix a range of boot problems. In terms of partitioning, Paragon Partition Manager provides all of the tools and options you could need - the ability to create and resize partitions, change partitions formats and drive letters free space redistribution and much more.
The program also includes backup options that make it possible to backup a partition to another drive, CDs or DVDs, or a network location. Partitions can be copied and resized on the fly, which is a handy feature for backing up your system or when installing a new hard drive. With no previous knowledge of partitioning needed, Paragon Partition Manager makes drive partitioning accessible and simple.
