Overview of Gparted for Windows

GParted is a free partition editor that supports graphically manage users' disk partitions under Windows OS. The concept about GParted can be traced back to 10 years ago that this tool supports early Windows XP and even Vista users to shrink or extend partition size, delete or create partitions and even create space for the new OS. 

For new Windows users, it's impossible to resize or move partitions on their own if you are not familiar with partition disk management. This is why we need one GParted Windows tool.

Disadvantages of GParted

Although the Gparted sounds perfect, it has one big drawback. The old GParted cannot satisfy most new Windows users' increasing needs such as to convert system disk from MBR to GPT or migrate OS to HDD/SSD, especially under Windows 10.

And some users even find out that GParted does not work well in resizing and moving partitions. It takes quite a long time to extend an NTFS partition, and moreover, it seems that no one really boots the system successfully after using GParted resize system partition.

So it means that we need to find a new and even better GParted Windows alternative tool to help Windows users manage their disk partition and space. Does there exist any free partition software that can exceed the old GParted? What is the best free GParted Windows tool? Keep reading and you will find the answer.
