Creating a volume

You might need a new volume to:

  • Recover a previously saved backup copy in the “exactly as was” configuration;
  • Store collections of similar files separately — for example, an MP3 collection or video files on a separate volume;
  • Store backups (images) of other volumes/disks on a special volume;
  • Install a new operating system (or swap file) on a new volume;
  • Add new hardware to a machine.

In Acronis Disk Director Lite the tool for creating volumes is the Create volume Wizard.
