Got it FAR a few months ago from Tiger Direct... Very handy program to partition, clone, resize, etc... without losing data (unless you want to).

Pros:
Well-organized, effective partition management. Clear menus. Easy-to-make emergency disk.

Cons:
Potentially-dangerous features too easily accessible, and explanations buried in the help file. Windows-based emergency disk requires multiple steps to build.

Bottom Line
Good enough partition management for most purposes, but study the help file before using any unfamiliar features.

Sure it does. The Metro interface hides quite nicely so that I can get work done on the Win7 version of Win8.

Will this clone a drive or is Acronis True Image needed for that?

Unless you need the OS selector I'd go for the Free Aomei Partition Assistant Home Edition.

Can you please explain? I want to replace my laptops hard drive with an SSD drive -- and want to clone the existing drive. Will this do that?

No, you would need to get Acronis True Image.

I don't know what you guys are talking about here... I've personally cloned more than one drive using this software. Heck, I even did it on RAID drives.

1. Cloned a regular drive into a RAID 1 Array.
2. Cloned a system drive into a RAID 0 Array.
3. Cloned a RAID 0 system drive back into a regular drive.
4. Repartitioned, resized, and moved data between cloned drives.

All that using Disk Director 11 Home.

Confirmed. I just cloned a 160GB HDD to a 120GB SSD, which Windows' built in imaging can't do and the Acronis products that came with my WD and Seagate drives made difficult because they couldn't see the WD or Seagate drive behind the controller in the USB enclosure. For the time spent filling out a rebate form and the cost of a stamp, problem solved.

BTW, if you couldn't find the clone feature, you have to right click the volume, not the partition.
