Hi Alex!

This issue may be caused by insufficient privileges, the program was launched with, so please, run Acronis Disk Director with administrative privileges (Run as administrator). Also, please, try to create a bootable media and try the same action from the bootable media. 



Возможно причина в недостаточных правах пользователя, запустившего процесс. Пожалуйста, запустите программу от администратора и попробуйте заново. Создайте, пожалуйста, загрузочный носитель и попробуйте аналогичное дейстаие с него.

Hello archie hankey,

thank you for your posting! What product version\build is used here? I'd recommend trying with the latest build and if the issue persists, contacting Acronis support team for the more in-depth investigation. 

Generally, make sure that the file system is supported by Acronis Disk Director and the drives are free from errors.
