    I have 4 partitions on my disk, the first one is my boot drive C and the rest are encrypted partitions. The Disk Directory Suite therefor thinks they are corrupted (I see that red icon indicating an error on them).

    If I now for example delete the second partition and resize the first partition so it uses that space, could that lead to that the other two partions are affected in any way? Could they be moved or could the volume headers and/or the data be modified in any way?

    (Of course I know that I can't resize an encrypted partition without having trouble but I want to know if doing something with one partition possibly could in any way modify another).

    Hello Flekstor,

    Please accept our apologies for the delay with the response.

    Thank you for using Acronis Disk Management Software

    Please note that changes made with one partition will not spread on another one.
    So all data on your partitions (even on resized) will be saved.

    Thank you
