Acronis Disk Director Server automatically considers the limitations of file systems and parameters provided. In particular, it won’t let you enlarge a FAT16 partition over the maximum 2 GB (4 GB for Windows 98/Me) value.


By clicking OK in the Resize Partition window, you'll create a pending operation for partition resizing and moving (your actions may only undo or 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.
