Working with Acronis Recovery Expert
Deleted partitions search progress
The information about hard disk partitions is stored in a special disk area – the 1st sector of 0th cylinder, 0th head – called the partition table. This sector is called a boot sector or the master boot record (MBR). Acronis Recovery Expert not only checks the partition table for deleted partitions, but also scans the entire disk surface. Therefore the recovery process might take some time to complete.
Please note: Acronis Recovery Expert may find deleted partition(s) almost at once (in a few seconds). Partition(s) found are then added to the list in the Searching for Deleted Partitions window. The search will, however, continue until the entire disk is scanned for partitions.
In the automatic recovery mode, the search must be finished before you can proceed to the next recovery steps. The Next button becomes enabled only after the progress bar is full in the Searching for Deleted Partitions window. The manual mode however enables you to work at once (see 7.2 «Manual Recovery»).
Partitions found during the search are shown in the list with their main parameters:
partition free space
Please note: Found partitions are automatically added to the list during the search.
