I have a new Windows XP computer and have just purchased, registered and installed Disk Director Suite 10 version 2,077 in order to split the single NTFS partition. I posted this query to Acronis and received a number 484369, but no answer yet. I reduced an NTFS partition and selected "logical, no file system" for the remainder. Acronis labelled the remainder "174.4GB 0xBB (Acronis hidden)". When I try to create a partition in this space by using the "create partition wizard", I get the following error message " - not enough free space on the selected hard disk drive".It is all virgin empty space on a brand-new computer (previously part of the NTFS sole partition). Can you please advise me how to convert it into a second NTFS logical partition and a FAT32 logical partition? Although the partition is labelled "Acronis hidden", the "advanced menu" still shows the HIDE option, and not UNHIDE. Selecting HIDE makes no difference to the partition entry although HIDE changes to UNHIDE, but reselecting UNHIDE (and "committing")still makes no difference to the main window, whilst changing the menu option back to HIDE. It seems impossible to alter this (Acronis hidden) logical partition, or to "unhide" it. Any advice would be appreciated.
