Hey guys when i find a application Aomei Partition Assistant, but i thought it may like the old windows partition application which is a normal. Then a bit later i see something new in the description which means —creating Windows To Go drives (a portable Windows) from any version of Windows 8. Formerly, this was only possible with the Enterprise version.
Partition Assistant comes in two versions: Standard (free) and Pro which will charge you about $49. The standard version has everything which a normal user needs: partition splitting, copying, resizing, creation, deletion, formatting, property changes (e.g., active to inactive), and even secure wiping. There are also helpful wizards for copying, resizing, converting from NTFS to FAT32 and vice versa, plus migrating to a new hard drive or SSD. The program creates bootable Windows PE (Pre-install Environment) discs as well.
The Pro version adds some new ability like to convert Windows dynamic disks to basic disks, change partitions from logical to primary, alter partition IDs and serial numbers, convert disks from MBR to GPT and back again, as well as allocate free space from one partition to another. If all that sounds a little tricky and geeky, you don’t need the professional version i am sure. But those are handy with IT features, like some geeks then they may require to manipulate and maintain drives and partitions on a regular basis for the safeness of there data.
In application you can choose a USB flash or other external drive as destination, an Windows 8.1 WIM (Windows Install Media)/ISO file as the source, and create a live version of Windows 8 on said external drive that will boot from any PC.
- You need at least 13GB free on the drive, which in practical terms means you’ll need 16GB drive, or more likely 32GB if you intend to install any software and actually work with it.
Partition Assistant will create the disk for you, but you’ll still need to activate Windows. Aomei claims there should be no issues as long as you use a legitimate version of Windows 8.
As partitioning software, Aomei Partition Assistant is as very good as any program I’ve seen. The standard version is more usefull for most users for there normal usage.
So, guys Use the Application And let me know what do you think about it.
