Other useful features include partition copying, a boot disk creator, a Properties option that will tell you everything from the physical geometry of the drive to the serial number, drive letter swapping, and password protection.

This did not, however, affect the use or execution of EPM, and we recommend it unequivocally for partitioning tasks.
