Acronis Disk Director 12

Acronis Disk Director 12 Brings Data Manipulation and Disk Management to the Next Level


New Disk Management Tool Is the Latest in Acronis’ Technology Evolution, Powering the New Generation of Data Protection

Acronis, the global leader in new generation data protection, today announced the release of Acronis Disk Director 12, the latest version of its leading disk management and data manipulation product. Acronis Disk Director is a key product in the Acronis family of advanced industry-leading data management and backup solutions, and leverages technical advances powered by the Acronis AnyData Engine.

Acronis Disk Director 12 is the latest in the long evolution of the company’s Disk Director family and reflects Acronis’ continued commitment to powering the new generation of data protection technology. It provides a host of features to help computer users organise their hard drives for superior performance and protects and secures users’ data via multiple volumes on a single drive. The Acronis AnyData Engine ensures that users have the greatest confidence, flexibility and access to their data, regardless of which Windows version is in use.

“Since it first hit the market 13 years ago, Acronis Disk Director has been a leading disk management tool and has remained a must-have for technical users who want the most complete disk partitioning and data manipulation solution available,” said Nat Maple, Senior Vice President & General Manager, Global Consumer Business, Acronis.

“But data protection needs have evolved dramatically over the last decade. With most computers now shipping with one large single partition hard drive, the most basic form of data protection available is to create different logical partitions for the operating system and your personal data, protecting your data in the case of an issue or infection of the operating system. With a deep technological investment, Acronis Disk Director 12 has evolved to meet today’s market needs and operating system demands. With it, users can confidently manage their hard drives without the risk of data loss and can be assured that they have the most complete disk management and data manipulation solution on the market today.”

Acronis Disk Director 12’s core library support was developed by Acronis Labs, the company’s $10 million high-tech R&D centre launched by Acronis CEO Serguei Beloussov in 2013 and dedicated to producing New Generation Data Protection technologies. Users are armed with a complete and sophisticated set of tools to manage their information easily and safely, with the ability to partition, format, manipulate, clone, install, share, convert, boot, span, merge, split, resize, copy and move data or disk partitions without losing anything. This enables users to securely divide their hard disk drive into multiple partitions to maximise device usage efficiency.

Key features of the Acronis Disk Director 12 solution include:

Partition Management. To maximise disk use, users can merge, split, resize, copy, and move partitions without losing data. Users can also quickly reorganise a hard drive's structure.

Extended Windows support – New! Support for the latest versions of Windows (8 and 8.1), as well as earlier versions, including XP. Customers can also download and use the latest versions of Microsoft tools through the support of Windows Preinstallation Environment 5.0, and can access the latest Microsoft tools, like Windows Assessment or Deployment kits for Windows 8 or 8.1.

Across-the-board PC support – New! Support for Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI)-based computers, extending support beyond BIOS-based PCs and ensuring full functionality regardless of PC type, which enables all Windows users to access Acronis Disk Director 12. Users can create Acronis bootable media (Linux-based or Windows PE-based) and boot into a recovery environment on a UEFI-based machine.

Improved Recovery Capabilities with Acronis Recovery Expert tool included. In the event of a hardware or software failure, users can recover from a partition on the hard drive or create a disk that can bring the system back. Acronis Recovery Expert is an easy-to-use tool that lets users recover volumes on a basic MBR disk that have been accidentally deleted or damaged.
