4 Key Functions of Acronis Disk Director in the Enterprise

Acronis resized 600Part of keeping your enterprise running smoothly is proper maintenance of your physical disks. Being able to partition, recover, edit, clone and fully manage your drives is essential to an effective and stable network. Yet, in many cases, enterprises simply don’t have the tools they need to accomplish these tasks. Acronis Disk Director gives you the drive management and protection you need.

Here are just some of the important tasks that Acronis Disk Director can do for your enterprise:

  1. Disk partitioning. This function allows you to take existing disk drives and reorganize them based on data protection as well as disk space usage needs. You can resize, split, copy, move and even merge partitions without any data loss.
  2. Disk partition recovery. Acronis Disk Director includes Acronis Recovery Expert, which helps to protect your data by giving you the ability to recover and access deleted or lost disk partitions.
  3. Disk editing. Sometimes you need to be able to access disk contents on a low level. This lets you recover information that was accidentally deleted, or that may have been deleted or damaged due to hardware failures or virus problems. You can edit the contents of disk sectors, restore critical sectors and more.
  4. Disk Cloning. Cloning is a necessary technology in the Enterprise. This feature lets you replace your old drive with a new one without having to reinstall your operating system or applications. Disk Director will transfer the source disk to a target disk, with the options of cloning it as it is or resizing automatically based on the size of the new disk.

In short, Acronis disk director gives you full control over your disks and the ability to manipulate them according to your needs.

In addition to those high-level functions, you can do things like assigning volume letters, hiding or unhiding volumes, setting active volumes, span volumes across multiple physical disks, resize and split volumes at will, create or repair RAID-5 volumes, move disks online or offline and more.

If you need a versatile disk management tool in your enterprise, take a look at Acronis Disk Director. Find out more.
