Eassos PartitionGuru Free

#1 Post by gbrao » Wed May 10, 2017 2:54 am

Desc : http://www.eassos.com/partitionguru-free.php

Download : http://www.eassos.com/download.php
(4.9.3.405 updated on May 09, 2017)
Best free partition manager offers an all-in-one solution for data recovery, partition management and Windows backup & restore.

1 Recover deleted, formatted, missing files and partitions from hard drive, removable drives, RAID, virtual disk, etc.

2 Reliable and versatile partition manager makes best use of disk capacity.

3 Clone and backup partition or disk by different modes to better protect data security.
Portable 32-bit version available at the download page.
After installation (32- or 64- bit), if you copy the files from the install folder, it is portable.

Not stealth, creates a key in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Eassos\PartitionGuru. (EDIT : see 8th post below how to avoid this.)
Options stored in a local file.

My favourite partition manager for a long time. No dependencies (VC, dotnet, QT), does not install any services (unlike the software from Minitool). Feature rich.

Does access the intenet on startup, can be blocked with firewall.

Works like a charm. Saves some time one would otherwise have to spend for unpacking or installing/copying. Very useful. Thanks a lot for this one and for your Portable PotPlayer Generator. More of those please :) !

Just a tiny remark. The program created the folders PG32 and PG64 with the subfolders "PartitionGuru32Portable" and "PartitionGuru32Portable" respectively. Wouldn't it be simpler without PG32 and PG64? With or without them, I like this tool.

innounp.exe is used to extract the files from the installer. It places the program files in a sub-directory {app}. I just rename that directory.

Yes, thank you gbrao for such handy utility. :)

Upon further testing, I noticed PartitionGuru's executable is packed with a non-standard compressor making it fail to pass PE file validation...

Yes, I can confirm that. But Resource Hacker is unable to access any resources apart from program icons...

If you use the portable version of PartitionGuru from the Eassos download page, if you include a Options.ini file with this :

Code: Select all

[LicenseInfo]
Show = "N"
Then nothing will be written to the registry.
