Resizing and/or moving a partition

  • You may find that there is not enough free space on a certain partition. For example, maybe it is almost filled with MP3 files. Acronis Disk Director Suite lets you enlarge a partition easily.

  • To resize and/or move a partition
    • Select the hard disk and a partition to be resized.
    • Execute operation of partition resizing by selecting Disk - Resize or a similar item in the Operations sidebar list or by clicking Resize/move the selected partition on the toolbar.
    • Resize the partition in the Resize Partition window:
    − Hold the mouse button and drag a corresponding partition rectangle side until you get the proper size in the Partition size field.
    − Specify the partition size in the Partition size field.

    • Relocate a partition on a disk by one of the following methods:
    − Holding the mouse button and dragging the corresponding partition rectangle left side to resize free space before the partition.
    − Having pointed to the rectangle, hold the left mouse button and move a partition as a whole until you get the necessary MB or GB amount in the Unallocated space before field.
    − Specifying the necessary value in the Unallocated space before field.

  • Note
    • Acronis Disk Director Suite automatically considers the limitations of file systems and parameters provided. In particular, it won't let you enlarge a FAT16 partition over the maximum 4 GB (2 GB for Windows 95OSR2/98/Me) value.


• By clicking OK in the Resize Partition window, you'll create a pending operation for partition resizing and moving (your actions may only undo or modify an existing operation; see Modifying pending operations).


The new partition structure will be graphically represented in the Acronis Disk Director Suite main window.

  • Attention
    • Acronis Disk Director Suite features a wizard for performing more complex partition resizing (see 3.2 «Increasing Partition»). Simple partition resizing lets you increase partition size only if there is free (unallocated) space before or after a partition. The wizard lets you perform more complex operations such as increasing partition free space at the expense of other partitions.
    • Moving a partition to 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.
    • Take special care when moving an operating system partition and its boot code location. The OS might stop booting. For example, Windows NT 4.0 and earlier versions limit boot code location to the first 2016 MB
