Aomei Partition Assistant Professional Review
Adjust text size:
The professional version of Aomei Partition Assistant has been designed as an easy to handle, comprehensive approach to disk partitioning.
There used to be a time when it would have been tough to get your hands on a good partition manager that did a great job and was also easy to handle. Those days are long gone and, now, you can even find free tools that can split up large disks into multiple partitions.
However, Aomei Partition Assistant Professional is capable of more than this, since it comes in handy if you want to move and resize partitions, create new ones, merge volumes or wipe them clean.
For the average home user, there are two versions of the program, a free one, Home Edition, and Professional. The latter has more features unlocked, yet the differences between them are not too steep.
What separates them is the inability of the free version to convert a basic disk to dynamic or a GPT one to MBR. Furthermore, it cannot add a drive to RAID or remove it. The paid product can also be used on a larger number of Windows operating systems. Check this page for the full comparison chart
The price of the Professional edition is $39.00 (€31.78), but you can test it for free if you’re okay with the limitation: it can be used only with 100MB partitions. Our tests were conducted on the full version of the application, though.
Looks are not impressive, but options are arranged in an intuitive way, so using the program should not be a problem, regardless of your computer skills. Operations can be initiated from the disk view screen, as well as from the drop-down menus available on the left hand side of the application window.
Aomei Partition Assistant Professional offers a wide set of options, which include everything from resizing and moving the selected partition to splitting, merging, creating a new volume from unallocated space, formatting, deleting and even sanitizing. Additional choices let you hide a partition in Windows, or change its letter and label.
Managing the size of a partition is a simple job, as the options available let you define a new size either by punching in the values yourself for more accuracy, or by dragging by the graphical representation until the desired result is reached.
However, it looks like the bug we noticed during our previous testing of the program
is still present, when resizing the partition. So the value will slightly change when pressing the “Ok” button.
We also noticed that sometimes, when moving a drive, it cannot be pushed all the way so that there is no unallocated space before it; in this case, you have to punch in the value for the unallocated space before or after.
One of the new functions introduced in version 4 of the application is partition splitting. The option simply lets you divide one drive into two partitions, equally sized, if possible. You still have control over the volumes as you can resize them as you see fit. No unallocated space can result from this operation.
Allocating free space from one partition to another is also a new feature in this version. Simply put, this option lets you increase the space on a drive by taking it from another.
The advantage of this is that the drives involved do not have to be next to each other. The only requirement is that they be on the same disk. Once you set the amount of space to be transferred, Partition Assistant Professional automatically creates all the intermediary operations that need to be done in order to reach the desired result.
Although the disk view is updated as soon as you make a change, tasks are not executed immediately. They are listed under the “Pending Operations” menu and you can undo the actions one by one or discard them all at once.
This way, you can set all the actions at once and the application proceeds to executing the tasks in the same order they were defined.
Although we did not have any trouble resizing and moving drives with information on them, we do not recommend initiating such actions without making a backup first. This can be done straight from the application, through the “Copy Partition” option.
You can copy only the used space on a drive or make a sector-by-sector copy, which includes all sectors, free or occupied.
Aomei Partition Assistant Professional has not changed much since the previous major version, but it brings two new options (merge/split partition and quick allocate free space) and supports 4TB GPT drives. Also, it now integrates flash drive support and can run on Windows 8 operating system. The Good
It comes with an intuitive interface and a versatile set of options. You can review all operations before starting to make the changes.
Allocating free space from one drive to another automatically creates all intermediate actions to reach the desired result. The Bad
Just as noted in the previous review, wiping a drive turns it into unallocated space. On the same note, moving a drive in some cases is not accurate and may result in unwanted strips of unallocated space. The Truth
This version of Aomei Partition Assistant Professional
has not changed much since our previous encounter with the application
, in that we noticed the same malfunctions. However, it comes with new options, which make splitting and resizing a drive much easier.

As far as partitioning software goes, there are alot of them out there. Some are very easy to use than others and some are just plain difficult for especially the novice user. Aomei has a professional interface that should be familiar to persons who have used other such tools before. I tried other partitioners and they all lacked something or the other i needed, would like the opportunity to try this program to see if it is different.
|Comment #7 by: zeusz4u on 07 Jan 2012, 23:29 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I have used both trial and cracked (it's not legal, but that's it now) version of Acronis Disk Director so far. I was not impressed at all. When I tried to increase the size of C: - where I have my Windows 7 installed, it simply screwed up my Windows. I was not able to start after using Acronis. It's a shame considering the price of the software.
I like the fact that this version has got a somewhat limited, but FREE version. I'll give it a try. Being a giveaway, I hope I can get my hand on one of those licenses to upgrade to professional to unlock the other features as well.
To be honest, I find the price really high. Considering the fact that once you partition your hard drive, you may not need it again (I don't say never again, but most probably you won't use it for a looooooong time). Therefore it doesn’t make sense to spend money on such software at all. As I stated above, I had some bad experience with another commercial software - which it is now obvious why I didn't purchase. I'd recommend using the free alternatives out there. There are plenty of them, Paragon PM, Partition Wizard, Easeus PM Home, Cute PM, or even the older versions of Partition Magic could serve you well.
Also once you touch your partitions it's a good politics to always back up your data so you won't get into my shoes, losing your Windows, and having to reinstall everything. :)
Thank you Softpedia for this giveaway.

I bought a 160g hard disk on my desktop PC and sent it to a service center to install a new operating system. When i got home i was confused why it only appears 80G available disk on "My Computer". I've asked to the computer store what is happening on my disk..They said it is just hiding! So i looked for a software and there you have it! I've tried the trial version and it works! I already got another drive on my disk. BRAVO!

I have four 5 drives or partitions in my PC. Each drive/partition is used for different purpose. But according to the need of different types of data/document storage, I need to enhance the size or volume of some of them and need to reduce some of them. That's why I need an effective and efficient partitioning software with easy to understand, user friendly interface like Aomei Partition Assistant Professional 4.0. So if you kindly give me one of it, it will do lots for me. Can I have one?
|Comment #22 by: comphelp on 09 Jan 2012, 08:34 UTC|| reply to this comment|
An excellent program. Clean and smooth running and has all the necessary functions. But the program lacks the ability to boot from CD/DVD or USB.
thanks Softpedia for this contest, for excellent taste, and for the chance!

i've tested lots of partition management softwares and my first experience was partition magic, i always had problems with these type of softwares. i've tested the free version of Aomei partition assistant and i think this one looks promising, haven't seen any problem yet and hope to win the pro version.

Using the free version for about a year! Happy with it.
Will the giveaway license include free support? I am happy with the free version but cousin who is not so tech-savvy might need support. I am asking for a license for him if there is free support available in the pro version.

Well...I used partitioning software sometimes. I was pleased when I discovered that no restart is needed when you make a partition out of unallocated space :) .

I used the free version of Partition Assistant 3.0 and I found it simple, effective and very good for normal task, i.e. enlarging or shrinking partitions, get information about a partition, without leaving windows. Very well done.
|Comment #28 by: Andrei Serban on 10 Jan 2012, 20:43 UTC|| reply to this comment|
It looks like a very nice piece of software. Merging partitions is a very usefull function in my opinion, a function that's not available in many programs of this type.

My friend recommended me aomei partition assistant home about a month ago, worked fine. straightforward options let me easily finish the extension for my system partition.
And several hours ago, my friend recommended me this giveaway again, truthfully, I really want to upgrade to pro edition because everybody think free is nice and i believe i got this opportunity.
The most important, I will recommend softpedia to all of my friends. And of course, I will recommend Aomei Partition Assistant to all.

Happy to try this partitioner. Sometimes disc builds will not work with one, but another does the job fine. The more SysAdsmin tools, the better ! Please provide a license so I can run it on a lab. test drive. Softpedia gets better & better ! Good idea to have a Rescue Discs hub, but it could easily be expanded almost 10-fold. Thanx bunches - Leshy -- email@example.com

I have used the Classic Partition Magic with great success for most basic Windows routines and Easus Partition Manager for mixed boot installs, with Win and Linux partitions...and usually no problems. When I tried Aomel Partition Assistant, I got errors in reading partitions, as well as in fulfilling the exact required resizes and partition moves. It rendered an Ubuntu install basically slag...of course I had just done the basic Ubuntu install, tested that it worked fine, and could easily reinstall later if slag happened. However, many users would cry a lot if their long perfected and lovely install with all updates special drivers, etc., were so mangled, even if they had a restore DVD burned and sitting around, as that is just another layer of fuss. Why Partition management software has to be as Byzantine and hair raising is beyond me. Partition Magic is ancient and still has one of the best, least stressful interfaces and reliable performance, and fast, too. Some of the other partition managers are both scary and slow. That seems like a bad, bad trade off. I would like to try the "improved pro" version of Aomel, just to see what it is capable of. My clients might even like it, as they seem to think Easus is too complex for them. (OK, I know, I know, but that is their opinion, and we cannot alter that with a hammer, it is not usually seen as constructive). Cheers, and thanks for the good review! - Zenbob

I have a 120 gigabyte drive that has already been partitioned into 3 partitions. i would like to know if aomei partition assistant can have an add on built into it to allow my computer push the hard drive to the safe maximum cylinders, tracks and sectors available. some manufacturers will down grade and ship for examply a 200 gb disk drive to only format 120 gb.
I used to use an apple computer and increased the total amount available on the floppy disk with a utility that extended the read/write armature and then retracted it to a safe margin of error and addted extra tracks to the floppy disk. Could aomei partition manager also add a disk alignment tool to the partition assistant it (it helps the disk drive)? and would they also be able to increase the number of bytes or words per sector? I am looking for such a utility and would like to use aomei partition assistem professional in case i have to reformat the hard disk. I am looking for a free backup online company to dump my operating system and files to. yes, i might also need a disk partition recovery tool. is there something to allow me to add sectors per track?

I volunteer at a non-profit organization that provides training for mature adults. As the turn-over rate for other volunteers seems high, I am constantly setting up computers with different configurations. It would be nice to be able to easily create hidden partitions where I can keep the commonly used images. I would certainly welcome the opportunity to test drive Aomei. Thanks Softpedia.

I normally use Parted Magic for most of my partitioning needs. It's a great piece of free sofware that works with both Linux and Windows file systems. Can "Aomei Partition Assistant Professional Edition" be booted fom a CD/USB? Does it support Linux file systems such as ext3/4? or is it limited to Windows file systems only? I see no mention of Linux or Linux file systems in the above discription.
|Comment #51 by: antonytony on 15 Jan 2012, 07:09 UTC|| reply to this comment|
Partition assistant professional edition is a small but powerful program for handling partitions. I use it complimentary to easeus and paragon partition programs.
Though it is relatively small program but i found it having most of the features of these programs. Any action is first queued which can be edited and can be launched. I got PA pro 3 and 4 in their giveaway and found it to be really amazing. Though i experienced few problems in editing the partitions , it was only rare so it doesn't matter.
Thanks for the giveaway softpedia. Please announce such giveaways in a separate page softpedia....

Partition management software must be very secure in order to trust it. In my experience, specially for the least experienced users, this software must be very clear and easy to use to avoid information lost. There will always be some risk, but with the right tools and some knowledge, we can manage our drives and some other drives (I work as a technician) with ease.

I have had mixed success with partition software. The easiest to use was Paragon Partition Magic 8 but it is no longer supported and I have had limited success with other partition software. I like gparted but I can only use it outside windows from a CD. I have tried trial versions of Partition Commander and the free Partition Manager (?), but I need to study the manuals thoroughly to really understand what I am doing. Partition Magic made it easy to read and assess what I needed as I went along.

Having a good partition management software allows for the custom creation of a recovery partion to rebuild everything back from a failed drive as it once was. By simply cloning one partion to another this makes the recovery process painless!

This would be good to install Windows 7 besides Windows XP, so that we can use older software besides the new software at our company.

Have used Parted, Partition Magic, etc. -- each having their own short-comings (especially with removable/bootable media and with compressing partitions, defragmenting free space is generally a nightmare) so I'm always looking for improvements to the tools of the trade. If there's still a few licenses available, count me in!

very useful for manage partitions. i used very often partitions tools and the software must be stable! thats very important. if the software is not stable it might be bad for the stored data on the disk. i think this software ist stable enought....

Would like to try it, tried many partition managers none seemed to do the job very well, or with bugs involved.

This software is amazing, work fine and excellent in my computer. A serious alternative program to partitioning, like ghost or easeus. Very easy to use.

I enjoyed using this software. What a great utility. Softpedia, Thank you for letting me know a useful program, even though I only used with the limitations of the program because I do not have copyright

I have used many partition management software programs.
These day it seems all are very good. I have yet to find one that is inadequate. I am looking forward to see how this one may be different/better.

Nice software. I previously used EASEUS Partition Master home edition, but find this app more powerful. But the UI was better in EASEUS i think. Nice giveaway. Hoping to get a license.

A Partition Manager with support for Server Versions for free? count me in
|Comment #107 by: PRF on 25 Feb 2012, 02:58 UTC|| reply to this comment|
By your review "Aomei Partition Assistant Professional" doesn't sound like it's worth downloading. Think I'll stay with "Parted Magic". The interface ain't so pretty, it's based on Linux and probably a bit tricky for a novice to use but it gets the job done. and the nice thing about it, it's free all the time. Thanks but no thanks.

I have used several hight cost disk partitioning programs including Partition Magic originally written and distributed by Power Quest and distributed later by Symantec and Acronis' partitioning program. I have been able to re-size partitions containg data with these programs without any bfaults occuring but the re-sizing process was never quick or especially easy. Increasing the size of one partition using space taken from another, non-adjacent, partition usually involved going through conversions of unallocated space, free space and used space to reach the final partition sizes that I wanted. Aommei Partition Assistant Pro 4.0 can accomplish the resizing of non-adjacent partitions without the previously required intermediate steps. This gives the Aommei program a great advantage in re-sizing partitions over the other programs I have used.

A few non starters in the review on this site;
"For the average home user, there are two versions of the program, a free one, Home Edition, and Professional. The latter has more features unlocked, yet the differences between them are not too steep.
@moving a drive in some cases is not accurate and may result in unwanted strips of unallocated space.
@This version of Aomei Partition Assistant Professional has not changed much since our previous encounter with the application, in that we noticed the same malfunctions.
Leaves one asking oneself, is it worth devoting the time or machine to test it when one could find another options with less limitations?

This is great to try this software (Aomei Partition Assistant Professional). I have been searching for this type of software and hope it will do what I want it to do and that is to turn my new hard drive into an unallotted drive, thus wiping away my failed attempts to install Windows in this unformatted new hard drive. Then I will format the drive, hopefully making it ready for my laptop.

good partition assist. For me, i try the free version and its exellent.

The last time I used partitioning software computers were still running DOS. Can't remeber what I used then, but it worked. Now I have a 1TB hard drive that Windows 7 doesn't label with a drive letter, but Control Panel does recognize. I need some software that will repartition this drive and let me have it back in a usable condition. Also need the siftware to physically scan it before anything else is done to it. This sounds like just the program that is needed. Will report back and let everyone know just how the progress and success went.

Will it work with external hard drives?

I would like to get a full licence of this tool as i always increase the size of my hdd drive due to low space and for that i have to format my pc. If this can do that for me without formatting then it would be great for me.

Have used proprietary and OSS partmanagers, and have yet to find a partmanager fit for purpose better than PMagic. Will see if this one is an "also ran".

I bought a 1.5 terabyte drive & I made the Windows partition too small. Then my computer didn't see the rest of the hard drive at all. With the Home Edition of Partition Assistant, I was able to enlarge the Windows partition and split the hard drive into two more partitions in about five minutes. Very user friendly.

If this software allows you to add space to the c: drive without all the issues of using Acronis and others and with a GUI. Then we have a winner.
I don't see Wiping a drive and it becomming unallocated a bad thing. But the unwanted strips are of concern unless you can change them afterwords.

I don't think about me as a power user, but I stumble upon new OS installation into different machines. My biggest problem is the exact calculation of multipliers from b to B - all I want is to deliver a 'pretty' partition of 50 GB instead of 48.8 GB... Can Aomei help me with this? I'll tell you later! ;-)
|Comment #127 by: The Ancient One on 01 Apr 2012, 13:39 UTC|| reply to this comment|
With any partitioning program you will have some problems with moving and resizing partitions and you should always backup your data before doing any operation on a partition. This program seems to be as good as any other partitioning program that I have used such as gparted, paragon and easus master partitioner.

I recently tried to clone a failing 1.5 TB Western Digital drive to a 3 TB Seagate with Acronis, Partition Magic and was unable to accomplish this the cloned drive would not boot due to a MBR error. I tied this again with a 3TB Western digital drive with their free version of Acronis and experienced the same results. Then I applied their windows align tool and like magic the drive booted. The align process took about three hours but I walked away and it happen. I didn't have to reinstall any software.

There r so many apps for managing partitions. Most of them are very big programs. But aomei partition assitant has a low size but yet powerful on features..
It is capable of resizing/deleting/moving/formatting/exploring most of the types.
It is ideal for users having a lot of data and requiring a lot of drives. It also allows us to perform these operations without damaging any data..
Surely a useful prg for me.. Thanks aomei and softpedia...

Not lip service anymore, Partition Assistant has its own advantages, I still have version 3.0 that was I got through the giveaway, I even compare it with other software the results are really good and valid.
I'm glad to hear that Softpedia giveaway in Partition Assistant license. Would be happy if I can update the full version of Partition Assistant and free. Thanks Softpedia.
