Automatic Partition Operations

Chapter 4. Automatic Partition Operations

The «Automatic partition operations» mode enables you to perform the following typical operations:

  • Create a new partition

  • Increase partition free space

  • Copy a partition

  • Recover partitions

These operations are performed with wizards, enabling you to enter operation parameters step-by-step and return to any step as needed. Each parameter is provided with detailed instructions.

For a detailed description of the Recover Partitions Wizard see section «Working with Acronis Recovery Expert»

4.1

Creating A New Partition

You might need a new hard disk partition to:

  • Store several same-type files — for example, an MP3 collection or video files on a

partition

  • Store backups (images) of other partitions/disks on a partition

  • Install a new operating system (or swap file) on a partition

Create partition wizard lets you create a partition of any type (Active, Primary or Logical), select a file system, label, assign a letter, and other disk management functions.

1. If you need to create a partition:

1.

Run the create partition wizard by selecting Wizards Create partition or a similar

Wizards list item on the sidebar, or by clicking

Create partition on the toolbar.

2.

The wizard will analyze computer disks and partitions. If the wizard finds unallocated

space, you will see the Action Selection wizard page.

It will ask you to select how to create a new partition:

  • (1)

    using disk unallocated space.

  • (2)

    using existing partitions free space

Unallocated space is the space not used by any existing partitions. In contrast, partition free space is the space free from any data.
