General information

  • A hard disk is a rather complex information storage device. One should have the very exact knowledge of hard disks and of modes of their interaction with the computer to work effectively with them using the Acronis DiskEditor program as well as with any other disk editor. Approximations are inadmissible. If you dared to work with a hard disk with a disk editor, it is necessary to remember that mistakes will cost very dearly: you may easily violate disk's information integrity, not only making any data inaccessible, but also serviceability of your computer may be completely ruined (the operating system will stop loading, applications will stop running).

    It is impossible to offer complete information on organizing data storage on a hard disk and on its interacting with operating system and applications in such a short Help. Thus we'll inform you only about the most vital data below skipping many complex technical details of information storage and the internal construction of a hard disk. The general accent will be set on capabilities of Acronis DiskEditor program. You will need some special literature to work confidently with a hard disk with a disk editor.

    Capabilities of Acronis DiskEditor will be demonstrated on the example of FAT32 file system: despite the numerous lacks it's still the most widespread file system in the personal computer world. NTFS file system is too complex for describing it in detail in this Help. Some of its properties and differences from FAT32 will be described in the Appendix C File Systems.
  • If you have difficulties understanding what the program performs on a hard disk address to the Appendices at the end of this Help. In Appendices you may find details of both hard disks construction, and data storage organization on them.
