Macrorit Partition Expert seem like just another disk partition manager, but it has some interesting unique features that is worth looking into. Although I have never used Macrorit Partition Expert before, it was not hard finding my way around this tool.

At first glance, the features seemed limited compared to similar free disk partitioning tools. However, everything you may need to manage disks and partitions seemed to be there with a few pleasant surprises, like the surface scan and cancel-at-will features.

As mentioned, everything you need to manage your disks and partitions is packed into this free partitioning tool. Furthermore, the free version features Macrorit’s unique power-off protection and and disaster recovery while performing partition operations.

According to the Macrorit website, the Pro version also features their unique one second roll-back data protection technology, it is twice as fast and support hard disks up to 32TB big. Furthermore, you can create 32-bit or 64-bit WinPE bootable discs with the Pro version.


While testing Macrorit Partition Expert, I found it difficult to locate the wow factor or at least something to make me want to switch to Macrorit Partition Expert from my preferred partitioning tool. That said, Macrorit has a loyal following and many positive reviews, meaning that it performs its core functions well. Moreover, it is easy to use, and nothing is confusing about how it works.

Macrorit do not neglect to mention that you can perform most of the partition operations without data loss. However, this is a feature I expect in any partitioning tool. But, their unique cancel-at-will and data rollback technology, provide important data protection that other tools do not have.

Macrorit Partition Expert Cancel at Will

The data rollback feature will protect your data if anything happens while a Macrorit Partition Expert operation is in progress. For example, a sudden power outage or unknown system error. In turn, the cancel-at-will feature allows you to cancel an operation anytime before its complete.

There was one minor annoyance – on my 3 monitor configuration, Macrorit Partition Expert did not remember the window position and I had to drag it into view every time it was launched.


  • Easy to use.
  • Portable version – can be used without installation.
  • Important data protection features.


  • Does not support dynamic disks.
