Disk Director
Just Released

The most feature-rich toolkit to manage your data and hard drives

What is Acronis Disk Director Business

Acronis Disk Director 12.5 Business provides all the necessary tools to better optimize, protect and manage your hard drives and data. Easily create hard disk partitions, resize, move or merge partitions, without risk of data loss.

Disk Cloning

Replace your old disk drive without having to reinstall and reconfigure the operating system, applications, and peripheral preferences. Easily create an exact replica of a source-disk data onto a target disk. This operation is available for basic MBR disks.

Disk Editing

Edit your disk drive content on a low level to recover missing information – whether it was accidentally deleted, lost via software or hardware failure, or destroyed by malware. Back up and restore critical hard drive sectors, edit, and organize the contents of hard disk sectors - all with one solution.

Partition Management

Mapping hard drives and creating partitions are made easy, allowing you to do more in less time. Format, label and make your partitions active in one easy step reducing time spent and risk of errors and data loss.

What's New

Extended hardware support

Control systems even when they are built on the newest hardware. Acronis Disk Director 12.5 features native compatibility with more modern hardware thanks to an updated Linux kernel version in its bootable media.

Supports Windows Server 2016 and 4K native hard drives

Manage any disk-related issue with even greater ease. The new version of Acronis Disk Director supports all of the latest operating systems, advanced drives, and modern environments you rely on every day.

Most Complete Disk Management Toolbox

  • Create, convert, copy, move and delete volumes
  • Resize, split, and merge volumes without losing your data
  • Format and label volumes, specify i-node density, change file systems or clusters size
  • Assign volume letters, set active volumes and hide/unhide volumes

Bootable Media

Create either WinPE or Linux bootable media so you can start your machine from a CD/DVD or USB stick. By launching with boot media, you can use Acronis Disk Director either on bare metal or outside of the operating system (OS). You’ll be able to partition your machine before the OS is installed, ensure that the OS and applications are not interfering with disk management operations, and conduct advanced troubleshooting and recoveries if the OS fails to start.

Disk Partition Recovery

Defend your data by protecting it against hardware or software failures, virus attacks, or destruction by intrusive hackers. Every copy of Acronis Disk Director 12.5 comes with Acronis Recovery Expert built-in, so you can easily recover lost or deleted disk partitions.
