MiniTool Partition Wizard 12.0 Released (April 1, 2020)
Version 12 is a bit annoying. Apart from a slow startup, it won't open maximized even if you select Maximized in the shortcut.
It also has the annoying Quit The Program | Yes/No? when you want to close it.
v12 installer blocked by WIndows Defender
If you buy the version with data recovery, it has also become considerably more expensive $ 99> $ 129
For anyone who is still using version 9.1, I would suggest that you stick with it.
At least for now.
Becuase I still use 9.1 on another computer, and it works just fine, and without the above annoyances.
I also prefer the interface over the flat faded look.
I don't see any benefits in upgrading to that.
I see. Thanks.
I've been a PW user for eons. So far, there's not a single feature beyond v9.1 (and there hasn't been that many) that I've ever had use for over the years... v9.1 has done everything I ever needed done. The fast loading, simplistic, FREE, Linux-based Recovery Media disappeared in v10 and beyond... and the current v12 LIVE (as well as WinPE-based) application interface is cumbersome, much more than it needs to be.
As a previous, long time user, I just haven't found any compelling reason to move forward with PW.
I see a feature beyond 9.1: harder to crack that's it, they say. lol
Well, the v9.1 Recovery Media was FREE... I guess that was too easy to crack
...and, a quick look on the Infobahn show that cracked versions of PW v11.6 (last before v12 release) abound.
I can't remember the exact version that I used before but I stopped using it as I had a license and they blocked it after a few re-activations and I simply do not do business with companies who do that (ehemm ehmm Kaspersky) . If I own a license, I want to be able to reinstall and reactivate as much as I want. I only have 1 computer but I format a lot.
Do you have a link to the v9 that still works? I'm having a hard time finding a partitioning program that actually works. I tried AOMEI Partition Manager on 2 systems and it destroyed both of them when trying to resize the partitions.
This should work
Thanks a lot
last good versions i found was 9x
I installed v9.1, man it's so much better. v12 is very clunky and has a PUP. I also disabled it from having inbound/outbound internet access via the Windows Firewall rules and now it doesn't prompt me to upgrade when I launch it.
I'm looking for Bootable Media 9.1 (Linux based) iso. Can't find it after 30 min. searching around.
