Manual Partition Operations
Merging an NTFS partition to a partition with file system not supporting security options (for example, FAT32 partition), will result in loss of security settings (partition ownership data and access permissions). With the opposite action (merging a non-secured partition to the secured one), the target partition security settings will be assigned to the resulting partition.
You can explore and manage partition contents before configuring operations on that partition directly from the Acronis Disk Director Server.
If you need to explore a partition:
Select a partition to be explored.
Select Disk Explore or a similar item in the Operations sidebar list, or click
Explore on the toolbar.
The program displays a folder tree. Now you can explore or manage the partition contents. You can copy, paste, rename and delete files and folders and create folders on the selected partition. To do so, right-click on the file/folder or use icons above the folder tree.
Exploring partition contents
You are also enabled to view or edit text files up to 64 kb in size. To do so, right- click on the file and select Edit. To illustrate why it may be necessary, imagine that your operating system failed to boot. You can run Acronis Disk Director Server from Acronis OS Selector main window (if the program is not installed, start it from bootable disk), and change some critical files contents.
