The key to merging partition in Vista is to select some suitable partition magic. Similar to Windows operating systems, Vista provides users with multiple editions like Home Basic edition, Home Premium edition, Enterprise edition, Ultimate edition, etc. Judging from the edition names, we can know that different editions are used in different environments. What's more, every edition consists of 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems and there are differences between 32-bit Vista and 64-bit Vista. Is it necessary to select suitable partition magic according to different Vista editions in order to merge partition? For some partition magic, it is. However, we can ignore it if we use MiniTool Partition Wizard which supports all Vista editions.
What if partition magic is not
compatible with Vista?
Microsoft has announced that Vista operating
system is of excellent compatibility. But many users have encountered the
situation where some software is not compatible with Vista.
1. When we use
partition magic to merge partition in Vista, some can enter the operation window
normally. But in the operating process, Vista may show error prompt, which stops
2. Some partition magic is said to run perfectly in Vista.
But after users update or change Vista operating system edition, the partition
magic can not operate in Vista, let alone merging partition in Vista.
Some unprofessional partition magic is not compatible with Vista at all. When we
launch it, the system reminds us of compatibility failure and merging partition
in Vista can not be carried out.
Whether the partition magic is compatible
with Vista must be considered when Vista users choose partition magic. No matter
how powerful the partition magic is, it is useless if it can not run normally in
Vista. However, MiniTool Partition Wizard gets rid of our worries about
compatibility. According to Vista users' feedbacks, MiniTool Partition Wizard is
highly compatible with all Vista editions, so we can use it to merge partition

delete partition, recover partition and so on. MiniTool Partition Wizard has all
those functions as well as some other partition
