Manual Partition Operations

Change letter window

4.

By clicking OK in the Change letter window, you'll add a pending operation to partition letter assignment (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.

Only Windows NT/2000/XP lets you change letters assigned to partitions. Windows 98/Me assigns letters to partitions automatically.

Directly changing a partition letter might affect shortcuts to existing partitions. Changing a partition letter in Windows NT/2000/XP might result in problems running applications and opening files on the partition. If it is a system or swap file partition, it might cause OS boot problems. A detailed discussion of partition letter assignment rules for various operating systems appears in 4.1 «Creating A New Partition».

5.2.2

Converting a file system

FAT16

The main disadvantages of FAT16 are:

  • Inability to support partitions larger than 2 GB

  • Inability to work with files larger than 2 GB

  • Inability to work with hard disks larger than 8 GB

  • Limited root size — up to 512 elements

  • File names containing up to eight name symbols, a dot and three extension

symbols (Windows NT do not have this limitation)

FAT32

The FAT32 file system appeared in Windows 95 OSR2 and is supported by Windows 98/Me and Windows 2000/XP.

Its main purpose was to remove FAT16 limitations. FAT32 is the evolution of FAT16.
