AOMEI Tech Co. has released a new version of AOMEI Partition Assistant, and along with a name change, has added several new features, one of which is support for UEFI boot. The previously called AOMEI Partition Assistant “Home Edition” has been changed to AOMEI Partition Assistant “Standard Edition”. The term “Home” was dropped in favor of “Standard” because the new edition is now completely free to use for both private and commercial purposes, eliminating the need for businesses to buy licenses.
The basic function of the software remains the same, that is, AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard is an all-in-one hard disk partition software that offers various free partition management features such as create, resize, move, copy, delete, wipe, align, format, merge, and split partitions. Aside from these basic features, the new AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard lets you convert file system from FAT to NTFS, migrate OS from hard disk to SSD and vice versa, make bootable recovery disk, recover lost or deleted partitions, convert MBR to GPT disk and vice versa, and rebuild MBR to repair or add boot code.
AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard also supports the new UEFI boot system found in the latest laptops as an alternative to BIOS, support MBR disk and GPT disk up to 4TB, as well as removable drives such as flash drives and external hard disk. AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard is also Windows 8 compatible.
