Clearing a hard disk

  • Acronis Disk Director Suite lets you clear not only unallocated disk space, but an entire disk as well.

  • To clear the entire hard disk:
    • Select a hard disk to be cleared - Clear button becomes available.
    • Select Disk - Clear or a similar item in the Operations sidebar list or by clicking Clear on the toolbar.
    • Select the clearing method in the Clear Hard Drive window; you can:
    − just delete hard disk partitions (without wiping disk sectors) - set the switch to Delete partitions.
    − delete hard disk partitions and fully clear hard disk sectors - set the switch to Delete partitions and destroy data. Having set the switch to Delete partitions and destroy data, enter the number of passes for wiping.

    • By clicking OK , you'll add a pending operation of hard disk clearing.

  • Attention
    • Deleting hard disk partitions does not destroy disk sector contents. They can be restored by special means, if needed. Therefore, if you need to destroy confidential information, set the switch to Delete partitions and destroy data!
    • For information about the Acronis Disk Director Suite data wiping algorithm see the commentary for «Deleting a partition».
    • Deleting a partition in Windows 95/98/Me can change the order of letters assigned to other partitions. As a result, some shortcuts might stop working. A detailed discussion of partition letter assignment rules for various operating systems appears in Create a new partition.
