Installation And Use
A power loss, turning off the PC or pressing the Reset button on your PC during the repartitioning procedure could result in partition damage and data loss.
Please take all necessary precautions and following these simple rules:
1. Create a disk image of the disk on which partitions are to be reconfigured. This will ensure that your data will not be lost under any circumstances.
Almost all current PCs feature CD-RW drives. Having your most important data backed up to a hard disk or CD will enable you to work on the disk partitions with full confidence that your data is safe.
Acronis offers extremely effective hard disk and partition disk imaging software — Acronis True Image (visit http://www.acronis.com/products/trueimage/). It creates a backup stored in a compressed archive file whose contents can be restored at any time.
2. Test your disk to make sure it’s fully functional and does not contain bad sectors or file system errors.
You can invoke system hard disk checking tools directly from Acronis Disk Director Server
by selecting button.
3. Do not perform any partition operations while running other software that has low- level disk access, such as antivirus or backup tools. Close such programs before running Acronis Disk Director Server.
If you follow these simple rules, you will protect yourself against data loss.
