Automatic recovery

  • In the Searching for Deleted Partitions window, Acronis Recovery Expert searches for all deleted partitions. The search progress is shown in the lower part of the window.

    • 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.
    • 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.

    Partitions found during the search are shown in the list with their main parameters:
    • number
    • status
    • label
    • capacity
    • frtee space
    • file system

    Found partitions are automatically added to the list during the search. Note that you do not have to select partitions for recovery in the automatic mode. Acronis Recovery Expert will recover all partitions found.

    The Recovered Partitions window shows a partition to recover as a part of hard disk partition structure, marking it with an icon in the upper right corner of its rectangle.

  • A partition has been found by Acronis Recovery Expert and is shown in the disk structure, but has not yet been recovered.
  • This finishes partition recovery preparations. To complete this operation, select Commit in the Operations section of the Main menu. This will complete the given partition recovery.
  • If you exit Acronis Disk Director Suite without confirming the partition recovery operation, it will be canceled.
