My Thoughts on Macrorit Disk Partition Expert

Macrorit Disk Partition Expert is perfect if you need to create additional partitions or copy lots of data from one drive to another. I say this because nothing is confusing about how it works; everything is out in the open and easily accessible.

However, there are some additional features that other free disk partitioning tools include that you won't find with Macrorit Disk Partition Expert, such as being able to migrate Windows to a different hard drive.
