Hiding a partition

  • Acronis Disk Director Suite allows you to hide a partition. It can be useful for protecting important information from unauthorized or casual access. Unlike other software, Acronis Disk Director Suite can hide any partition independent of its type, primary or logical.

  • To hide a partition:
    • Select a disk and a partition to hide in the list in the Acronis Disk Director Suite main window.
    • Select Disk - Advanced - Hide or a similar item in the Advanced sidebar list or by clicking Hide on the toolbar.
    • By clicking OK in the Hide Partition window, you'll add a pending operation to partition hiding.
  • A hidden partition is labeled Hid in the Flags field of partition list in the main window.
  • Attention
    • Hiding a system partition will prevent your PC from booting. Hiding a swap file partition in Windows NT/2000/XP will produce a similar result. If you have several primary partitions with different operating systems, hiding an active system partition will automatically make another partition active.
    • Note that the Advanced - Hide sidebar item is changed to Advanced - Unhide after you select a hidden partition from the list. The partition context menu also changes.
    • Hiding 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. In Windows NT/2000/XP, hiding a partition does not affect letters assigned to other partitions. As a result, only hidden partition shortcuts will stop working.
