MiniTool Partition Wizard Server Edition is a disk manager particularly designed for Windows Server. With a safe and fast partitioning engine, this utility allows server administrators and users in general to handle all the typical drive partitioning operations required for more efficient storage. It supports Windows Server 2003/2008/2012 and Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8.
With MiniTool Partition Wizard SE, you will be able to create, resize, extend, move, as well as merge and split partitions in a simple and effective manner, and most importantly, without altering data. Functions like partition formatting and conversion of file systems between FAT and NTFS can be easily performed with the help of this tool. Advanced disk operations include the possibility of converting MBR Disk or GPT Disk partition styles without data loss, as well as converting dynamic disk to basic disk for improved performance.
Though these operations involve a certain degree of complexity, this tool simplifies every task by means of simple controls and a user-friendly layout that lets you visualize disk usage for better management. With a right-click over a partition, the app will bring up a menu with all the options available. You can opt to use the right-side panel menu instead or just select a partition and access the options from the main toolbar. The application does not make any changes to your disk until it gets your confirmation. It lists all the pending operations letting you check and optionally undo tasks before proceeding. The time it takes to apply the changes depends on your disk and partition sizes.
Under the section Wizards, you will find tools to copy or clone a partition, copy an entire disk with all its partitions, and the option to migrate or transfer the operating system from a normal hard drive to SSD/HD. It supports all the disks recognized by Windows, including local drives, USB disks, Firewire, and even RAID devices.
To sum up, the Server Edition of MiniTool Partition Wizard is an all-in-one disk management solution that is remarkably easy to handle and combines a set of advanced tools suitable for server administrators. The application has a cost of $159 and a free demo version available for evaluation.
