Many people just buy a laptop or desktop computer that comes preloaded with operating system such as Windows or Linux and do not really have to worry about the hard drive partition structure. But when you want to upgrade the hard drive to a large capacity drive then you may have to think about partitions and how to resize or manage them.
Even though all operating systems come with one or other tool to help you partition the hard drive, these tools are not very user friendly and sometimes do not even have a graphical user interface. You can use a third-party partition manager like IM-Magic Partition Resizer to make it easy to format, merge, resize, or copy them. It is very secure and safe for all the operations. It is free for personal use on Windows 7 and above.
IM-Magic Partition Resizer features a graphical user interface with easy access to all the partition management tools. It shows you all the partitions available on a hard drive or any other storage media. You can right-click on any partition or unpartitioned space to find any available functions for it. Typically, you will be able to resize, move, merge, copy, delete, format, hide or wipe the partition. You can also change the filesystem of a partition.
IM-Magic Partition Resizer is free for personal use. It supports GPT and MBR disks. A paid version of this software, IM-Magic Partition Resizer Pro, offers many more features. For example, it allows you to undo or resume the last performed operations. IM-Magic Partition Resizer Pro also displays hidden partitions and allows you to perform various operations on them now allowed in the free version. The paid version also allows you to create a bootable media to be used on any computer.
