Why Don't We Recommend The Built-in Windows Disk Management?

In fact, the built-in Windows Disk Management meets the basic needs of controlling a hard drive, but with too many restrictions. It allows WD users to extend, shrink, delete and format volumes only, and even sometimes it's unavailable in those functionalities.

Since it's a built-in application, it's reliable. If your WD hard drive needs more management beyond the capability of Windows Disk Management, please feel no hesitate to download EaseUS Partition Master Free, the magic Western Digital hard drive formatting, and partitioning software.
