    Is there any partition manager (other than Paragon) that's reliable?

    I tried Acronis Disk Director 10, but the first two tasks I tried failed; so I abandoned it -- I don't want to manage my partitions with software that's unreliable.

    Paragon Partition Manager seems reportedly to be reliable, but its support cost of $100 per incident (after the first 30 days) seems unreasonably high.

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks.

    I'm sure it's been said before, but common sense dictates that you back up or have an image of anything that matters. Then you are free to try different products without excessive worry. The way I see it, nothing is 100% safe, regardless of how much it might cost. So best cover yourself first, then it's not such a life and death matter if it all goes out the window somehow...

    EASUS Partition Manager Personal is free. I used it and didn't encounter any problems.

    You can get the 8.5 version for free if you want to try that.

    You don't have to worry about support costs because you don't get any. :D

    Common cause for failure with Acronis Diskdirector is to do partitioning from within Windows.A better way is to use their bootdisk and then do partitioning in the Safe Mode,this way it never failed me.

    Another vote for BootIt NG. This is my first and only image and partition tool.
