Help Me Choose

We want to help you choose the right partition manager based on your disk storage type and needs. Identify your disk storage type to get a product recommendation.

What type is your disk storage: basic or dynamic?

The easiest way to identify your disk storage type is from Windows Disk Management snap-in. To open it, click Start, click Run, type compmgmt.msc, and then click OK. In the console tree, click Disk Management.

Method 1: Identify in "Volume List" region.

As the screenshot shown, we can identify a basic disk partition or a dynamic disk volume from the "Type". For example, the System (C:) is displayed as "Basic" in "Type", so it’s a basic disk partition. However, the Striped Volume (H:) is displayed as "Striped" "Dynamic" in "Type", so it’s a dynamic disk volume.

If you want to manage (resize/move, extend, shrink, etc.) System (C:) partition, you need to choose AOMEI Partition Assistant; if you wish to manage (resize/move, extend, shrink, etc.) dynamic Striped Volume (H:), you need to choose AOMEI Dynamic Disk Manager.

Method 2: Identify in "Graphical View" region.

It is very easy to identify a basic disk or a dynamic disk from the disk name. For example, Disk 0 is shown as "Basic", so is Disk 1, namely, they are basic disks. In like manner, Disk 2 and Disk 3 are dynamic disks.

If you want to manage (resize/move, extend, shrink, etc.) partitions on Disk 0 and Disk 1, you need to choose AOMEI Partition Assistant; if you wish to manage (resize/move, extend, shrink, etc.) partitions on Disk 2 and Disk 3, you need to choose the advanced edition of AOMEI Partition Assistant, such as Professional Edition, Server Edition, Unlimited Edition, and Tech Edition.
