    Just noticed that the above program is available for free today on Bits du Jour - does this program have great advantages compared to the the inbuilt functions of Win 7 / Disk Manager? Should I grab a copy?

    Doesn't GParted or Parted Magic do what you need? These are all I use for years. Also I use EaseUS Todo Backup Advanced Server for all my imaging & restore operations even to dissimilar hardware.

    Zajib - I have not used a partition program before so don't know anything about gparted or Parted magic. Just stumbled across the freebie today and wondered if this would be a good addition to my arsenal. As for imaging programs, I using Shadow Protect, IfW and Macrium.

    beethoven,

    I thought you had a license for BIBM. No?

    I find GParted the best partition manager. LiveCD that overcomes Windows limitations.

    I've been using EaseUS Partition Manager for several years now, and ahve found it to be an excellent tool for partitioning. I have the free version installed currently (but have the Pro version on some of laptops), and am downloading the Pro version now. Even the free version works very well.

    As to whether it is going to be better than using Disk Management, that depends what you want to use it for. Disk Management is fine for basic tasks.

    For those who miss today's giveaway of the Pro version, it appears from time to on Giveaway of The Day's website.

    Haha, ;)you know my software better than I do. After your comment, I checked and indeed I bought an additional license for IfW recently and at that time paid a bit more for a bundle to have BIBM included. The IfW license has been used but the BIBM license is still untouched. I probably should become familiar with it.

    BIBM is my favourite app. It's a combined Partition Manager, Boot Manager, Disk Imaging and Scripting app.

    Does it do partition alignment?

    Thanks Brian, haven't had time yet to try anything but based on your experience, I will go with BIBM then.
