Manual Partition Operations
Chapter 5. Manual Partition Operations
Unlike the «Automatic partition operations» mode (see 3.1), the «Manual partition operations» mode is intended for experienced users only, and offers much wider operation lists. Manual operation parameters are entered in the dialog boxes.
To switch to the «Manual partition operations» mode, select View -> Manual mode.
Main Partition Operations
Main hard disk partition operations include the typical, most frequently used operations of partition creation (selecting a type, file system, formatting, etc.), assigning label and letter partition, resizing, relocating, clearing, deletion, etc.
If there is unallocated space on a disk, you can create a partition using manual disk operations.
Note that the Create partition wizard mentioned above can create a partition using both unallocated disk space and the space of existing partitions (see 4.1 «Creating A New Partition»). It will enable you to create a partition on unallocated space only. If there is no such space, it should be provided by resizing and moving existing partitions.
If you need to create a disk partition:
Select hard disk and unallocated space in the Acronis Disk Director Server main window. The Create partition button will become available on the toolbar, and the Create Partition operation on the sidebar and in the context menu.
Selecting unallocated disk space Select Disk Create partition or a similar item in the Operations sidebar list, or click Create partition on the toolbar.
