Splitting partitions

  • You can split a partition into two partitions, moving the selected folders to the new partition and leaving the rest of the data on the old one. The new partition will have the same file system.

  • There must be some free space on a partition to enable its splitting. The amount of free space necessary for splitting can be calculated as follows:
    • Space for the new partition file system - depending on the file system type, maximum 20 Mb
    • Plus space for the program's data - about 25 Mb
    • Plus 3% of the size of the data, being moved to the newly created partition

  • With splitting completed, this space will be free again (except for space for the new partition file system) and will be distributed between the two resulting partitions. If there is not enough space on the partition, you will get a message that splitting is impossible.
  • To split a partition:
    • Select a partition to be split.
    • Select Disk - Split or a similar item in the Operations sidebar list or by clicking Split on the toolbar.
    • In the folders tree, select folders to be moved to the newly created partition.
    • Distribute the source partition free space between the two resulting partitions.


    • Please keep in mind, that you are distributing not overall partition size, but just free space at this step. The program will automatically count how much space is necessary for the folders being moved to the new partition, and will add the specified free space share to that size. Thus, if you divide free space in equal parts, it does not mean that the two resulting partitions will be equal in size.

  • • By clicking Proceed you'll add a pending operation (your actions may only undo or modify already existing operation; see Modifying pending operations).


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