64bit Partition Manager

  • Every computer would unavoidably employ partition manager while performing partition operations on 32/64bit operating system, such as Resize partition, format partition or merge partitions. However, these operations can not be realized by the onboard partition manager of operating system. Therefore, user requires a partition manager - MiniTool Partition Wizard to finish these operations.

    What is disk partition?
    Disk partition comprises main partition and extended partition with the latter divided into several logical partitions.
    Partition refers to independent sections created on disk that are used to store data and files. Disk partition is divided into main partition and extended partition among which main partition comprises the necessary file and data to start operating system and extended partition is utilized to store data and application files. Usually a disk consists of five main partitions at most when the whole disk is divided into main partition; however, if there is extended, a disk could have three main partitions maximally. Main partition can be utilized immediately but could not be divided into smaller partition and extended partition is available only after being merged.

    About 64 bit:
    In computer architecture, 64-bit integers, memory addresses, or other data units are those that are at most 64 bits (8 octets) wide. Also, 64-bit CPU and ALU architectures are those that are based on registers, address buses, or data buses of that size. 64-bit is also a term given to a generation of computers in which 64-bit processors were the norm.
    64-bit CPUs have existed in supercomputers since the 1970s (Cray-1, 1975; CDC 6000 series, 1964, were 60-bit) and in RISC-based workstations and servers since the early 1990s. In 2003 they were introduced to the (previously 32-bit) mainstream personal computer arena, in the form of the x86-64 and 64-bit PowerPC processor architectures.
    Without further qualification, a 64-bit computer architecture generally has integer and addressing registers that are 64 bits wide, allowing direct support for 64-bit data types and addresses. However, a CPU might have external data buses or address buses with different sizes from the registers, even larger (the 32-bit Pentium had a 64-bit data bus, for instance). The term may also refer to the size of low-level data types, such as 64-bit floating-point numbers.
    To perform disk management on 64 bit computer, user is recommended to use MiniTool Partition Wizard - a partition manager newly developed by MiniTool Solution Ltd.. MiniTool Partition Wizard allow user to create partition, delete partition, format partition, wipe partition, merge partition, resize partition, copy partition, partition manager and convert file system, etc.

    After running this partition manager, user could see all partitions listed in the above interface including 32 and 64 bit operating systems. User can perform any kinds of operations upon disk in accordance with instructions on the left side of the main interface of MiniTool Partition Wizard.
