Acronis Disk Director 11 Advanced Workstation tools
Acronis® Disk Director® 11 Advanced Workstation provides you with powerful partition and hard disk management utilities to ensure your workstations are running efficiently. Acronis has a long history of supporting Microsoft operating systems and this version includes full support for Windows 7 as well as Windows Vista™ and Windows XP™. Dynamically split, merge, resize, copy and move partitions within Windows to minimize downtime. Perform advanced hard disk drive editing tasks, such as recovering important data areas of a hard drive and searching for and/or extracting information that was lost due to software and hardware failures or virus attack.
- Partition Manager
Resize, move, copy, split, and merge partitions without data loss. Speeds creation of partition settings for new PCs.
- Partition Recovery
Recover lost or accidentally deleted partitions.
- Disk Editor
Allows users to perform advanced operations on your hard disk drive, such as restoration of boot records and hexadecimal editing.
- New! Create both basic and dynamic volumes
The handy Create Volume wizard has been improved to support dynamic volumes creation. Now, in addition to basic volumes, you can easily create dynamic volumes in Acronis Disk Director to:
- Increase the volume size beyond the capacity of a single disk, by using a spanned volume
- Reduce access time to files, by using a striped volume
- New! Add, remove, or break mirrored volumes*
Make your basic or simple volume fault-tolerant in just one action by adding a mirror. If you need extra unallocated space on a disk containing one of the mirrors—remove a mirror. Break a mirrored volume to get two independent simple volumes with initially identical content.
New! Copy or move a volume of one type as a volume of another type
Change the type of a volume when copying or moving it. For example, you can copy the contents of a mirrored volume to a spanned volume.
- New! Convert primary volumes to logical and vice versa
Convert a primary volume to logical to create a fifth volume on a disk that currently has four primary volumes.
- New! Convert basic disks to dynamic and vice versa
Convert the existing basic disks to dynamic to achieve additional disk reliability for data storage.
- New! Convert GPT disks to MBR and vice versa
Change the partitioning scheme of your disk to the way you need it.
- New! Import foreign disks
Make dynamic disks added from another machine accessible for the system.
- New! Changing a disk status: online to offline and vice versa*
Change a disk status to offline in order to protect it from unintentional use.
- New! Disk cloning
The Disk Cloning wizard lets you replace the old basic MBR disk with a new one without reinstalling operating systems and applications. It transfers all of the source disk data to a target disk. The source disk volumes can be cloned to the target disk "as is", or resized automatically according to the target disk size.
