I'm looking for a good disk partitioning/management software suite. I've been using Acronis Disk Director but I've had a few data corruption issues which I think might be related to it (especially after reading comments on the Internet about it bricking other people's hard drives).
Some basic things I'm looking for are:
- Runs on Windows.
- Can boot from CD / create a bootable rescue CD to run the software.
- Can handle most basic partitioning tasks - deleting, creating, resizing, splitting, merging, etc.
- Handles at least Windows and Linux partitions / file systems.
- Stable and safe!
- Not too expensive.
I'm only managing a few home machines here, so I don't need any features for managing large deployments.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
