Partition Wizard Pro is obviously intended for people who like the numerous hard drive formatting, re-lettering, and data-transfer options. The interface’s left column contains two sections: Wizards and Operations. The Wizards sections contains easy-to-use guides that let you migrate your computer’s operating system to another drive, copy a partition, copy an entire disk, or recover a deleted partition. Operations has more than five times as many options, including Change Drive Letter, Hide Partition, and Wipe Disk. Certainly, we could execute some of these features in other programs but we found Partition Wizard Pro’s interface slightly easier to navigate.
Hard Drive and Data Management
Partition Wizard Pro has a lot of options, so we used the utility to perform more common hard drive management tasks. the Partition Wizard Pro lets users queue commands, which I found incredibly handy. It relaxed me from being dedicatedly siting at my desk as it created partitions on its own, merged partitions, deleted partitions, and then wiped an external hard drive. I also used Partition Wizard Pro to transfer 250 GB of data from my primary hard drive to a secondary drive—the process took just over an hour and a half.
I was happy to see that Partition Wizard Pro is compatible with external & removable storage; when I inserted a SD card into my PC, the utility instantly read and recognized the 32 GB drive. So, I deleted photos and videos from the SD card using the Wipe function, which let me select one of five different data deletion methods.
