Features
Add Partition: Using this feature, you can create new partition on your hard drive.

Format Volume/Partition: This helps you to erase data from the volumes/partitions. If a partition
contains data which is no more required, you can use format option to remove those data and assign the
space for new data.

Delete Volume/Partition: This allows you to remove any unwanted volume/partition from the hard drive.
All data in it will be destroyed beyond recovery. The deleted volume will be marked as free space and can
be used to create new partition.

Hide Volume/Partition: Using Hide option, you can unmount partition/volume temporarily to secure your
volume from unwanted user access. The hidden volume will not be visible under normal circumstances
and will not mount automatically, even by using any other utility. Stellar Partition Manager will rename the
hidden volume with automatically generated disk identifier name. But in some cases, the hidden volume
will retain its original name.

Reveal Volume/Partition: Using Reveal option, you can mount the hidden volume back on the desktop
and it restores the original name. A hidden partition can be revealed again only using Stellar Partition
Manager. The hidden partition will be visible in other applications, but you will not be able to select or
mount the partition.

Resize Volume/Partition: You can expand or trim partition size. If a partition needs more space, or it has
too much space within the partition, you can resize the same. Resizing depends on the available free
space and the space within the existing partition. In order to resize a partition, the partition as well as the
free space needs to be selected. You can decrease the partition size, only if there is free space in it.

Roll Back: Allows you to undo the last selection. In case you have selected a partition or free space to
perform an action, but decided not to proceed, you can use Roll Back option to undo the selection.

Refresh: Allows you to return to the initial User Interface and also shows the latest Hard Drive(s) list.
