Manual Partition Operations
Select the unallocated disk space to copy a selected partition to it.
In the next wizard page, enter partition copy type (Logical — Primary), size and
location. While copying a partition, you might have to change its type. For example, you have to copy a primary partition, but there are already four primary partitions on the disk. You will be able to copy it only as a logical partition. If you need to restore the primary partition from a copy, you will be able to change its type again.
Entering partition copy parameters
The size and location of a partition copy can be provided with a mouse or by entering data into the Unallocated space before, Partition size (and Unallocated space after) fields.
By clicking OK in the Copy Partition wizard, you'll add the pending operation of partition copying and location (your actions may only undo or modify already 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.
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.
