Automatic Partition Operations

The page for partition copy size selection

The minimum copy size is determined by the data area size of a copied partition. The maximum size is determined by the available disk space. It includes the space taken from a partition and unallocated disk space.

By copying a partition at the expense of existing partition free space, Acronis Disk Director Server can take the partition space to make sure that partition size is not smaller than 110% of data-occupied space.

On the next Partition Type wizard page, you can select partition copy type: Active, Primary and Logical.

As a rule, Primary is selected if a partition contains an operating system. If a partition is intended for data storage, you should select Logical.

Select Active if you want to boot the partition’s operating system at startup.

By copying a partition at the expense of existing partition free space, Acronis Disk Director Server can take the partition space to make sure that partition size is not smaller than 110% of data-occupied space.

Further actions for copying a partition are the same as described in sections 4-7 of 4.1 «Creating A New Partition».

Copying a partition in Windows 98/Me and assigning it a letter can change the order of letters assigned to other partitions. As a result, some shortcuts might stop working. For a detailed discussion of partition letter assignment rules for various operating systems, see 4.1 «Creating A New Partition».

Clicking Finish on the last wizard page will allow Acronis Disk Director Server to create the pending operation list for copying a partition (your actions may only modify an existing operation. See 3.4.5 «Modifying pending operations»).

The new partition structure will be graphically represented in the Acronis Disk Director Server main window.
