Beginning The Work
Hide/Unhide — hide/unhide a partition
Set Active — set an active partition
Resize Root — resize FAT16 partition root
Change Bytes per i-node — resize i-node table (Linux Ext2/Ext3)
Change Cluster Size — change FAT16/FAT32 partition cluster size
Change Type — change partition type
Recover — recover deleted or damaged partitions (see Chapter 6Chapter 7 «Working
with Acronis Recovery Expert»).
Edit — edit hard disk data (see Chapter 8 «Working with Acronis Disk Editor»).
Advanced partition operations are called from the Advanced sidebar list, the same partition context menu item or toolbar button.
Note that the additional operations list of the partition context menu or toolbar depends on the selection of a partition type. For example, the FAT16 partition menu contains Advanced Resize Root; this is absent in the FAT32 partition menu. The Linux Ext2/Ext3 partition context menu contains Advanced Change Bytes per i-node, which is not found on the FAT menus.
Invoking Acronis Disk Director Server wizards
Wizards are invoked from the Wizards submenu and the corresponding sidebar list. For example, select Wizards Create Partition for the partition creation wizard.
Partition Operation Properties
Displaying operation results
Results of any disk partition operation are immediately displayed in the Acronis Disk Director Server main window.
If you create a partition, it will be immediately shown in the hard disk partition list in the main window, as well as in graphical form on the bottom of the main windows.
Any partition changes, including resizing, relocating and labeling are also immediately displayed in the main window.
All operations are pending until the user issues the command for the changes to be made permanent. Until then, Acronis Disk Director Server will only show the new partition structure that is provided by operations to be performed.
Therefore, you can view the graphical representation of the new partition structure first and then decide whether to perform or cancel specific operations.
