Though resizing, formatting, wiping, or converting partitions are not one of those disk management tasks that we perform everyday on our storage devices, it is important to count with a reliable tool to do the job whenever the occasion arises. NIUBI Partition Editor Professional Edition is one of such tools, capable of performing a comprehensive set of reliable and safe partition-related tasks in a guided and easy-to-use environment.
Designed to make these sensitive tasks easy to anyone, this software program comes with all the warnings, fall-back features, and wizards required to take all the stress off the user. Its GUI may not be the most attractive one, and it certainly does not add anything to that of most similar tools, but it provides the user with all the information they need to go about it with confidence.
The most sensitive operations that NIUBI can perform include resizing, moving, merging, splitting , deleting, erasing, and converting volumes or partitions between file systems. Any of these operations, if not executed wisely and with some basic knowledge of the task in hand, may cause irreparable data loss or make your computer unusable. Luckily, this Professional Edition of NIUBI Partition Editor comes with a life-saving roll-back feature that can bring your computer back to life in just one second by reverting (or should we say “by not applying”) the changes proposed. The programs “roll-back data protection” works hand in hand with its preview of any of the tasks performed before actually making any changes in your data. This will not only keep your disks’ contents intact until you decide to change that, but will also allow you to cancel any running process without worrying about the consequences.
Apart from the tasks already mentioned, this comprehensive tool can also copy partitions (useful for data migration tasks), convert MBR disks to GPT, NTFS to FAT32, primary positions into logical and vice versa, extend NTFS volumes, etc. All of these operations will take from 30% to 300% less time than when performed by most of its competitors thanks to an exclusive file-moving algorithm, and no data will be changed in the process until you say so. Not all partition-related tasks are that sensitive – this tool also comes with a set of inoffensive features, which will let you launch a surface test, defragment any of your drives, view your partitions’ properties, change a drive letter or volume label, explore your disks’ files and folders, and even create bootable discs.
Thus, even though in terms of functionality NIUBI Partition Editor Professional Edition doesn’t seem to offer anything that its competitors can’t do, there is a very powerful reason why you may consider choosing NIUBI over the plethora of similar utilities available in the market. It is not about its price tag, which is just as affordable or expensive as that of many of its competitors – it is all about its impressive safeguard features, which guarantee that no change will be made permanent until you decide so. Regrettably, this 1-second roll-back function is not available in the program’s free edition, though I advise you to download and install it just to get a taste for the program’s performance. You can then move to this Professional Edition or to any of the superior Server, Enterprise, and Technician editions – all of them incorporate NIUBI’s Roll-Back Data Protection feature.
