    I discovered a safe way of increasing the size of my boot partition (C:) by creating an Acronis Secure Zone on another partition (actually a logical drive) then deleting it & distributing the freed space to C: This worked perfectly. Then I had a major Windows problem & had to restore C:\ from an image taken before C: was increased in size. I was surprised to find that C: was now back to its old size but followed by unallocated disk space. Would anyone know how C: & the unallocated space can be joined up? I've looked at 'Diskpart' but that doesn't allow for extending a boot partition & I even tried BootIt NG but this failed to extend C: So, I'm a bit stuck at the moment
    Many thanks for any help out there.

    From what I've been reading here I thought that the latest build of version 9 allowed you to adjust the partition. What ver/build are you using?

    Ah ... okay, while you're waiting for other replies, see what Acronis says on their web site about the latest build for ver 9. Or search around on the forum here to see if anyone said anything about unallocated space.

    Hello johnpaul456,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Server Disk Backup Software.

    You can do the following in order to get the space back:

    - Create an Acronis Secure Zone again using the unallocated space;
    - Remove Acronis Secure Zone by means of the Manage Acronis Secure Zone wizard, adding the space to a partition you want.

    You can also use any partitioning program (for example, Acronis Disk Director Server 10.0) in order to create a partition using the unallocated space.

    Thank you.
