In the past, I’ve recommended splitting your drive into partitions so the if you need to reinstall your operating system, you will not lose personal data. Other reasons to create partitions include the following: ensuring minimal fragmentation on your system drive and not filling your system partition up to the point where your operating system cannot function properly anymore. There are many disk management solutions out there and Windows even comes with one built in. If you are looking for a good, free program to manage your hard disk drives, EASEUS Partition Master Home Edition is a great option.

I’ve been asked a few times to review this program but I want, first, to make sure that it really is a good product for readers of Windows Guides. After extensive testing, I can confirm this program works really well.

How to Use EASEUS Partition Master Home

I have reviewed the Pro edition of this program in the past and feel at home edition performs all the essential functions to help you stay on top of disk management.

A simple example of this program action is shown below with screenshots and annotations.

How to Extend a Partition

In this example, I’ll show you how to extend a partition with EASEUS Partition Manager Home. To extend a partition, do the following:

  1. Open EASEUS. Notice in this example that I already have some free space (16GB) at the end of my drive

    EASEUS 1
  2. Right click the partition that you want to extend and click Resize/Move

    EASEUS 2
  3. Notice the free space after the drive

    EASEUS 3
  4. Now extend the partition by increasing its size (if you put in 1000000MB, EASEUS will realize you don’t have that much space and make the partition as big as possible)

    EASEUS 4
  5. Now the partition shows no free space after it

    EASEUS 5
  6. Click Apply

    EASEUS 6
  7. You are asked to confirm your change

    EASEUS 7
  8. Because data on the partition is being accessed, you’ll need to restart your machine (this is normal with partition management)

    EASEUS 8
