Pros & Cons:
EaseUS Partition Master Free allows you to easily create, delete, format, convert or explore partitions on your hard drive. A few clicks and you can also resize, move, hide or unhide existing partitions - all without harming your data. Also included is a Copy Wizard. Upgrading from smaller disks to larger disks is easily accomplished with the help of the copy wizard.

This takes much of the guess work out of deciding what you need to do to complete a task. Since the software is installed onto your hard drive, you work within the familiar Windows environment without the need to boot from a Live CD.
EaseUS Partition Master works with different file systems and supports up to 4.0 TB hard disks. It can handle up to 32 hard disks and works with hardware RAID as well. Supports Windows 7, GPT partitioning and partitioning Linux file systems: delete, create, format, recover EXT2/EXT3 partition, etc. Now as of version 9.0 supports merging, and wiping unallocated regions of disks.
As of Version 9.1 can merge adjacent partitions and EaseUS offers to migrate your system to a larger drive with almost '1-click' ease, us hasn't tried this, the procedure appears little different from cloning to a larger partition.
One significant drawback is that EaseUS free edition has no bootable recovery CD, for this kind of applications that can so easily render your machine unbootable, this should not be overlooked (make sure you have a recovery option available to you if you are altering your system partition, or even the system disk).
