MiniTool Partition Wizard Bootable CD – An useful FREEware

Few days back I reviewed MiniTool Power Data Recovery Boot Disk and then came to know that Minitool offers FREEware boot disk to perform loads of operations with disk partitions. Normally during OS installation one gets a few options to create, merge, delete partitions but once the OS is installed, you need to use in-built tools like Windows Disk Management to do some operations on the partitions. There are numerous freeware and paid tools available too with increased functionality. Minitool offers both installer and boot disk version of partition wizard.
