    Hello,

    I'll buy Acronis' Disk Director if it works for my situation. I tested the Demo and didn't get it to work - perhaps someone can help.

    System: Dell T3400, XPx64, single unpartitioned 300GB SAS, controller 6/iR.

    I just want to make a logical partition, and tried to use DD demo to make the minimal 1-cylinder to test. The program appreared to run, rebooted and appears to run the partitioning at restart. But when I look under Disk Management, there is no new partition.

    I just want a logical partition to cleanly separate data files from program files. Thanks.

    If the trial version will let you make a bootable CD (Tools > Bootable Media Builder) then try the operation again while booted from the CD, when Windows is not running.

    I think the trial version of DD will not allow any changes to be processed from the DD CD. Only the Windows version will work and only in a limited capacity.

    If this isn't a "system" drive, why was the reboot required? I don't see why a completely unpartitioned drive would require a reboot in order to create a logical partition (or any partition, for that matter).

    I think it was a system drive; a single, "unpartitioned" (meaning only one partition) 300 GB disk if I'm reading this correctly.
