Hi;

Unfortunately, the version 12.5 with Windows 10 / 64b. (latest version) not compatible: Disk Director 12.5 will not find any NTFS drives.

Very disappointed to find that Disk Director 12.5 still does not support EXT4 partitions despite this being offered by nearly all competitive disk management products, especially given that DD 12.5 suggests that such EXT4 partitions are not formatted!

Hi.

I would like to purchase Acronis Disc Director Home 12.5. But Acronis products for conusumers for some reason are not supplied by distributors in Russia. Is it a temporary situation?

If I try to purchase the program on a foreign Acroins website, is it possible to replace the program’s license with the Russian version after that?

if I change a partition on a usb stick or an external disk, DD 12.1 / 2 wants to reboot.

Why is there necessary or what should that be?

That can even better the disk management of Windows.

have a nice Day.

Acronis Disk Director might require you to reboot your computer if the partition involved in the operation cannot be locked (for instance, contains open files). In this case, Acronis Disk Director prompts you to reboot the computer after you commit the operation. Please note that the system partition (the partition the operating system files are stored on) always contains open files. 

If the target disk has/had a previous install of another operating system then this may cause the clone to ask for a reboot.

Is this product dead and no longer has new version or bug fix to release?

There have been no updates for ADD 12.5 for several years and it still has no support for EXT4 partitions!

I suspect that the number of alternative free partition manager type software applications have undermined this product and Acronis are now focussed on entering the Cyber Protection arena with the changes to Acronis True Image and their business Cyber Protect range.

I have been using the free MiniTool Partition Wizard software in preference to using ADD for several years now.

EaseUS partition master is another one.

So I bought (upgrade) this for my laptop to upgrade my SSD size and it would not work on my laptop.

I created a bootable disk and it would only boot with an error and never produce the menu to allow me to clone my original SSD.  And on top of that it messed up my boot manager and for a while there I didn't have a bootable laptop.  I was able to restore the boot manager, but I want a refund.  This software is worthless.  I have owned Acronis products for quite a while but stopped upgrading when the quality went downhill.  I for some stupid reason thought this would work and bought the upgrade.

btw, my SSD was installed in the second slot in my laptop.

I ended up downloading clonezilla and it works!!

after booting up on the cloned drive, I went ahead and gave Disk Director another chance to handle a simple partition resize, and of course it errored out.

I used Windows disk management to resize without issue...  

I deserve a refund  !!!
