Sure Windows comes with a decent partition/disk management tool, but if you need something much better, then AOMEI Partition Assistant is the tool for that. I definitely like the easy to use user interface, small download file size, and believe it or not this tool is packed with features. With the recent SSD prices going down, I have already updated most of our machines with SSD’s and it is the single most important upgrade that warrants great performance. If you have your OS setup the way you prefer, you may as well just migrate the existing installation to SSD. I have found AOMEI Partition Assistant Professional great for this and other tasks.
