Manual Partition Operations
The Explore operation shows the real partition contents, read from the disk. If there are some operations pending, like splitting a partition, you will not be able to explore partitions until the operations are committed or canceled. However, operations on folders/files in Explore window are executed immediately.
When you’re finished exploring, click OK.
Changing partition labels
The partition label is an optional attribute. It’s a name assigned to a partition for easier recognition. For example, one could be called System — a partition with an operating system, Program — an application partition, Data — a data partition, etc.
In Windows, partition labels are shown in the Explorer disk and folder tree: WIN98(C:), WINXP(D:), DATA(E:), etc. WIN98, WINXP and DATA are partition labels. A partition label is shown in all application dialog boxes for opening and saving files. (See Appendix B «Glossary» — «Label».)
If you need to change a partition label:
Select Disk Change Label or a similar item in the Operations sidebar list, or click Change the selected partition label on the toolbar. Enter a new label in the Partition label window.
Partition label window
By clicking OK in the Partition Label window, you'll add the pending operation of partition label changing (your actions may only undo or modify an existing operation; see 3.4.5 «Modifying pending operations»).
The new label will be graphically represented in the Acronis Disk Director Server main window.
