Creating partition

  • If there is unallocated space on a disk, you can create a partition using manual disk operations.

  • Note
    • Note that the Create MiniTool Partition Wizard mentioned above can create a partition using both unallocated disk space and the space of existing partitions (see «Creating A New Partition»). It will enable you to create a partition on unallocated space only. If there is no such space, it should be provided by resizing and moving existing partitions.

  • To create a disk partition
    • Select hard disk and unallocated space in the Acronis Disk Director Suite main window; The Create partition button will become available on the toolbar, and the Create Partition operation on the sidebar and in the context menu.

  • • Execute operation of partition creation by selecting Disk - Create partition or a similar item in the Operations sidebar list, or by clicking Create partition on the toolbar.
    • In the Create Partition window, enter a partition label and select a file system and partition type ( Primary - Logical ) from the list; you can also enter partition size and location using a mouse or by direct input to Partition size, Unallocated space before (and Unallocated space after) fields.
  • As a rule, Primary is selected if a partition is to contain an operating system. If a partition is meant for data storage, Logical should be selected.
  • • By clicking OK , you'll add the pending operation of new partition creation.
    The new partition structure will be graphically represented in the Acronis Disk Director Suite main window.
  • Attention
    • Creating a partition in unallocated disk space 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.
