Have you just purchased or own Partition Manager and have no idea how to create and format partitions? I have good news, you don’t need to spend money on an IT specialist, you can Do it Yourself with Partition Manager’s Create Partition Wizard.
You may ask why you need to create and format partitions? One of the top reasons is to speedup your computer, install more than one operating system and many more which you can read in my previous blog post.
Partition Manager’s Create Partition Wizard makes this process fast and easy! With this wizard, you can specify whether the created partition will be a Primary, Extended or a Logical partition. Then choose a file system from the following system types: FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, Ext2, Ext3.
Apart from creating and formatting capabilities of Partition Manager, you can also perform advanced operations such as:
Hard Disk Surface Test
– Partition Manager will look for bad sectors and mark them unusable in the file system meta-data.
Set Amount of Sectors Per Boot
– you can set the number of sectors to be reserved for the boot area. Available on for FAT16 and FAT32 file systems.
Set Amount of Root Entries
– you can set the maximum amount of files/directories to be placed in the Root Directory on the FAT16 partition.
