Manual Partition Operations
Entering moved partition parameters
The size and location of a partition copy can be provided with a mouse click or by entering data into the Unallocated space before, Partition size (and Unallocated space after) fields.
By clicking OK in the Move partition window, you'll add a pending operation to partition moving (your actions may only undo or modify already existing operation; see
«Modifying pending operations»).
The new partition structure will be graphically represented in the Acronis Disk Director Server main window.
Moving a partition to unallocated disk space in Windows 98/Me can change the order of letters assigned to other partitions. As a result, some shortcuts might stop working. A detailed discussion of partition letter assignment rules for various operating systems appears in 4.1 «Creating A New Partition».
Take special care when moving an operating system partition and its boot code location. The OS might stop booting. For example, Windows NT 4.0 and earlier versions limit boot code location to the first 2016 MB.
Resizing and/or moving a partition
You may find that there is not enough free space on a certain partition. For example, maybe it is almost filled with MP3 files. Acronis Disk Director Server lets you enlarge a partition easily.
Reasons for moving a partition were discussed above (see 5.1.3 «Moving a partition to unallocated disk space»).
