The biggest rivals in Windows-based disk utilities are Paragon and Acronis, and they each come out with new and more powerful partitioning and disk-management software once every year or so. You can't go wrong with either product, but they work in different ways and provide a different set of features. I gave both products a hard workout, and both did well. But Acronis Disk Director 11 Home ($49.99, direct) loses points for making it too easy to access potentially dangerous abilities without warning you up front that you might render your disk unbootable. Acronis Disk Director 11 Home sports a simple, elegant interface that makes it almost blissfully easy to perform most tasks. Dell Rt7d40 Keyboard Manual.
A column on the left lists operations that you can perform on a partition, such as Resize, Move, Copy, Merge, Split, and a dozen others, including a defragmenter. I enjoyed working with most of these functions, thanks to the straightforward dialogs that let me resize or split a partition by dragging the edge of a rectangle or by entering the exact amount of disk space I wanted to use. Dangerous Dialogs What surprised me about a product with 'Home' in its name is that the same list of operations includes potentially dangerous expert-level functions that (for example) let you change the numerical code that identifies the type of partition—options that make it all too easy to render a system unbootable. The help file warns about the dangers of such features, but the dialog boxes that let you perform these operations don't provide any warnings at all. In contrast, Paragon Hard Disk Manager offers a less elegant and far less simple interface, but makes prominent use of easy-to-follow wizards for performing basic operations.
Its potentially-dangerous and advanced features are sensibly hidden behind a link that opens a full version of the program for experts who know how to use it. Building a Bootable Emergency Disk Unlike its rival Paragon, Acronis doesn't provide prebuilt downloadable image files that you can burn to a CD to create a bootable emergency disk.
Instead, you have to use a wizard interface that creates an image file for you. You can choose to create a CD that uses Linux as the underlying operating system or one that uses WinPE, a Microsoft-provided 'preboot environment' version of Windows, like the one you see when you run an installer that installs Windows on your hard disk. I prefer WinPE-based boot disks because their hardware support matches the hardware support in Windows itself, and I've had bad experiences with Linux-based boot disks that can't see all the hardware on my system. Acronis let me burn a Linux-based CD with only a few keystrokes, but made it annoyingly difficult to build a WinPE-based CD. To get a WinPE-based CD, I first had to download a 1.7 GB WinPE installation disk from Microsoft, then reboot my system, and after all that, the wizard didn't offer to a burn a disk directly, but instead made me create an ISO image file, which I finally burned to a CD to get the WinPE-based disk. Both the emergency disk and the main program include a Recovery Expert that lets you restore deleted and, in some cases, damaged partitions. I experimented with this feature by deleting a partition on a spare drive, and the Recovery Expert restored the partition, but I wasn't able to test it on a damaged disk, so your mileage may vary.
Boot Management Another feature available from the Linux-based emergency disk, but not from the WinPE-based disk, is a proprietary boot manager called Acronis OS Selector. When installed, it displays a graphic menu on startup, from which you can select an operating system to boot from, or perform basic partition-management functions. You'll need a very good reason to use a non-standard proprietary boot loader when Windows and Linux both provide excellent boot loaders that can be managed by any modern disk utilities, and I can't think of any reason strong enough for me. I installed the OS Selector long enough to confirm that it works, and then removed it. Before you consider using it, keep in mind that it works only with traditional disks with an MBR (Master Boot Record) partition scheme, not large modern disks that use the GPT (GUID Partition Table) method. Acronis Disk Director 11 Home is a powerful and effective tool, but, despite its name, I'd hesitate to recommend it to most home users. Too many of its features ought to be better-hidden from beginners, and too many of its features need to be better-explained in their dialog boxes instead of in a help file.
Why does the bootable CD created from the Acronis Disk Director 11 Home bootable ISO that was downloaded directly from the Acronis account on the website only show build 2114 of Acronis Disk Director 11 Home in the About Acronis Disk Director 11 Home dialog box instead of build 2121 as if the.
If you know what you're doing, you can't go wrong by using it. But, for the average user, Paragon Hard Disk Manager Suite 2011, the PCMag Editors' Choice for PC disk utilities, is better. More Software Utility Reviews: • • • • • • • •.
