    Partition Wizard -- any way to create BOOTABLE USB drive

    Hi there
    Partition wizard - seems no way to create a USB bootable media -- if your PC doesn't have a physical DVD drive even the PAID PRO version doesn't show the create bootable media option. PLEASE NO ANSWERS FOR BOOTABLE CD --- THIS MACHINE DOESN'T HAVE ONE.

    Gone back to the FREE GPARTED program -- although it can take a lot longer to run when re-sizing / moving partitions.

    (Another method -- a bit extreme though is to install Partition wizard on a Windows to Go system !!!)

    The Partition wizard website is totally confusing too it shows a USB version but how to obtain it is unclear and the documentation is not good either.

    Hi jimbo45,

    Please excuse me if I am misunderstanding your question but this option should allow one to create a USB Recovery Drive:

    Again, I apologize if I misunderstood your intent.

    Update: If you are looking for one with some extra tools then this might work also:

    Looks like USB drive only available for "MiniTool Partition Wizard Professional Edition and other advanced versions"
