To safely and better manage the hard disk partition, it is a wise choice to make use of a reliable and versatile disk partition manager. Here we would like to share a free tool for you to conveniently control your disk and partition on PC.
The AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard is one of the most popular free partition managers nowadays. Targeting the Windows 10, 8, 7 and Windows XP, Vista users, this freeware provides safer and easier solutions to resize (shrink or extend), move, merge, clone, delete, format, create, clone partition and manage entire storage device (HDD, SSD, USB flash drive, SD card, etc).
It recently released the new version 8.8 and is only about 23.54MB. With a user-friendly and intuitive interface, any-level PC users can easily make any operations. Besides, as a piece of clean software, it does not come with any bundling programs, so you don’t have to worry your computer will be attacked by any virus. Now let’s take a look at what functions this freeware can provide.
Notable Features of AOMEI Partition Assistant
In this part, we picked out some features that most customers speak highly of and you might also be interested in.
1. Merge Unallocated Space into Another Partition
The “Merge Partitions” feature allows users to merge two adjacent partitions, or merge two or more parts of unallocated space into a partition. It becomes quite useful when you want to extend a partition, especially the system partition, but there is not adjacent unallocated space. With it, you can directly non-adjacent unallocated space into another partition. For merge two partitions, you have to note that data partition can be merged into system boot drive, but the system partition cannot be merged into data partition.
2. Convert NTFS to FAT32 without Formatting
It is well known that we can use “convert drive: /fs:ntfs” command to convert FAT32 to NTFS file system. But there is no command for converting an NTFS drive back to FAT32. So you need to back up any files you need, and then reformat the NTFS partition. Luckily, AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard develops “NTFS to FAT32 Converter”, which enables you to convert NTFS to FAT32 file system without losing data, and it also supports to convert FAT or FAT32 to NTFS file system.

3. Transfer OS to SSD/HDD with Secure Boot
The “Migrate OS to SSD Wizard” makes it possible to transfer only OS-related partitions to another disk, either SSD or HDD. Besides, you can boot from the new disk after migration. This is a good way to transfer operating system from one disk to another instead of performing a fresh clean installation on the new hard disk. Save much time and energy.
4. Convert Data Disk between MBR and GPT without Deleting Partitions
To convert data disk from MBR to GPT, or GPT to MBR via Windows Disk Management or Diskpart, you will be required to delete all partitions on the target disk before conversion since Windows native tools can only convert an empty disk between MBR and GPT partition styles. With this freeware, you can convert GPT to MBR without removing any partitions, so that the inside data can be safe during the conversion.
5. Clone Disk/Partition to Another One
“Disk Clone Wizard” aims to clone a whole hard disk (all partitions included), while “Partition Clone Wizard” allows you to clone a single partition of one hard disk to another partition or disk. Both of them can help realize easy and convenient data transfer from one location to another and ensure everything work well as they did in the source disk or partition. Quite different from copy and paste and much more advanced.
