Why Windows Disk Management Is Not Recommended

In fact, the Windows built-in Disk Management meets the basic needs of management 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 functions.
