If you try to exit Acronis Disk Director while there are pending operations that are not yet committed, you will be asked whether you want to commit them.

Quitting the program without committing the pending operations effectively cancels them. While the list is populated, this action is available.

For instance, when you create a new volume, the respective entry is added to the log. With the log, you can examine information about disk and volume operations, including reasons any for failures. Physically, a log is a collection of XML files stored on the machine. Rebooting eliminates the log, but you can save the log to a file while the machine is booted with the media.

You can also hide the unneeded columns and show the hidden ones. See the Filtering and sorting log entries p. The panel is collapsed by default. To expand the panel, click the chevron. The content of the panel is also duplicated in the Log entry details window. All the operations described below are performed by clicking the corresponding items on the log toolbar. To Do Select a single log entry Click on it.

All the entries between the first and last selections will be selected too. Select a log entry. The log entry’s details will be displayed in a separate window. Save the selected log 1.

Select a single log entry or multiple log entries. Click Save Selected to File. In the opened window, specify a path and a name for the file. Save all the log entries 1.

Make sure, that the filters p. Click Save All to File. Save all the filtered log 1. Set filters p. As a result, the log entries of that list will be saved.

Delete all the log entries Click Clear Log. All the log entries will be deleted from the log, and a new log entry will be created. It will contain information about who deleted the entries and when.

To Do Display log entries for a 1. In the From field, select the date starting from which to display the log given time period entries. In the To field, select the date up to which to display the log entries. As a result you will see that the list of log entries fully or just partly coincide with the entered value. Filter log entries by type Press or release the following toolbar buttons: to filter error messages to filter warning messages to filter information messages Sort log entries by date Click the column’s header to sort the log entries in ascending order.

Run the Create Volume Wizard by right-clicking any unallocated space, and then click Create volume. Specify the type that the new volume will have. Every volume type is provided with a brief description to let you better understand the advantages and limitations of each possible volume type. To learn more about volume types—see Types of basic volumes p.

The list of volume types contains only the types that are supported by the current operating system. Note: You cannot create a basic volume on a disk that already has four primary volumes; you first need to convert one of those volumes to logical—see Converting a primary volume to logical p.

This restriction does not apply to GPT disks. Note for striped and mirrored volumes: Because these volumes occupy space on their disks in equal parts, the maximum size of such volume will depend on the selected disk with the least amount of unallocated space. When creating a dynamic volume and selecting one or several basic disks as its destination, the selected disks will be converted to dynamic automatically. Specify the size of the new volume. By default, the volume size is set to maximum.

To specify a different size, move the slider or enter the required value into the Volume size field. If the disk still has unallocated space after you have set the size of the volume, you can set the amount of unallocated space before and after the basic volume.

To do this, drag the volume within the unallocated space, or type the required amount of space before and after the volume in the respective fields. In the volume layout diagram at the bottom of the window, you can specify the space that the volume will occupy on each of the selected disks, by typing the amounts or by dragging the sliders.

Some of the supported file systems will be disabled depending on the chosen volume type and size—for example, FAT32 will be disabled if the volume size has been set at more than 2 TB. Select the cluster size—the smallest amount of disk space which will be allocated to store a file. We recommend leaving the default size, which is marked in the list as default.

The default cluster size depends on the volume size and the type of the file system—for example, the default cluster size for up to 2-TB NTFS volumes is 4 KB. A short name that you can assign to a volume to better differentiate it from other volumes. Assign a drive letter to the volume to be able to locate files and folders on it. Set the volume as Primary, if you plan to install an operating system on it. Mark the primary volume as Active, if you need the machine to start from this volume.

Set the volume as Logical, if it is intended for data storage. Click Finish to add the pending volume creation operation. The results of the pending operation are immediately displayed as if the operation had been performed. To perform the pending operation you will have to commit it p.

Exiting the program without committing the pending operations will effectively cancel them. Extending a basic volume. A basic volume occupies a single region on a single basic disk. When you extend a basic volume, you can choose to leave the disk as basic and use only the unallocated space that is adjacent to the volume.

Alternatively, you can choose to convert the disk to dynamic and use unallocated space from all dynamic disks on your machine. In the second case, the volume will become a simple or spanned volume. Resizing a volume from which the machine or an operating system starts. You can resize the system volume, a boot volume, or the active volume only when it is a basic volume. To resize a volume 1. Select the volume that you want to resize, and then click Resize volume.

Specify the new size of the volume, by typing it or by moving the slider. The volume will remain a basic volume. The volume will be converted to a simple or spanned volume, and the corresponding disk will become dynamic. Note: This option is not available if the volume is the system volume, a boot volume, or the active volume.

This may involve relocating other volumes within the disk. As a result you will be able to extend the volume by using all unallocated space, including the unallocated space that is not currently adjacent to the volume, while keeping the disk as a basic disk. As a result you will get additional unallocated space, which will be adjacent to the volume that you are resizing. To include these volumes, select the Use free space on boot volumes check box. Examine how the resized volume will be located on the disk or disks, by using the preview area at the bottom of the window.

Click OK to add the pending volume resizing operation. Unlike copying all files from the volume, copying the volume itself ensures that the entire content of the new volume is the same. The original and new volumes can have different types and sizes. For example, you can copy a striped volume as a larger simple volume.

Important: When you copy the system volume, the active volume, or a boot volume, you might not be able to boot the machine from the new volume. Bootability will be preserved when you move such volume p. To copy a volume 1. Select the volume that you want to copy, and then click Copy volume. Select the type that the new volume will have. The default type is that of the original volume. This size cannot be less than the size of data on the original volume.

For a basic volume, you can increase its size only by taking unallocated space that is adjacent to it. In the volume layout diagram at the bottom of the window, you can specify the space that the volume will occupy on each of the selected disks, by typing the sizes or by dragging the sliders. Click Finish to add the pending volume copying operation. Unlike moving all files from the volume, moving the volume itself ensures that the entire content of the new volume is the same.

This is important if you are moving a volume from which Windows starts. The original and new volumes can have different types. For example, you can move a striped volume as a larger simple volume. Tip: If you want to relocate a basic volume within the same disk, you can use the resizing a volume p. Namely, you can leave the size of the volume unchanged, but change the amount of unallocated space before and after the volume.

Caution: Avoid moving a volume from which an operating system other than Windows, such as Linux, starts. Otherwise, that operating system may become unbootable. To move a volume 1. Select the volume that you want to move, and then click Move volume. Click Finish to add the pending volume moving operation. If you want to transfer your system to a new hard disk, consider disk cloning instead—see Basic disk cloning p.

The machine or its operating system will not always remain bootable after you move such volume. A reboot is required when you move the boot volume of the currently running Windows operating system, the system volume, or the active volume.

All data will remain intact and reside on the resultant volume. The resultant volume will have the same label, letter and file system as the main volume—that is, the volume to which data from the other volume will be added. Free space requirements. The combined amount of free space on the main volume and on the other volume must be at least 5 percent of the size of data on the other volume. For example, if files and folders on the other volume occupy GB, you need a combined total of 5 GB of free space, for example 2 GB on one volume and 3 GB on another.

Caution: Volumes that contain encrypted files cannot be merged. To merge basic volumes 1. Right-click the volume that you need to be merged, and then click Merge volume. Select another volume you need to merge. In Main volumes, specify which one of the selected volumes will be considered as a main. Data from the other volume will be added to a separate folder on the main volume.

This folder will be named according to the volume label and volume letter if present ; for example: Merged Volume ‘System’ C 3. Click OK to add the pending volumes merging operation. At the bottom of the window, you can estimate how the resultant volume will look like after the merging.

Merging an NTFS volume to a volume with a file system that does not support security options for example, FAT32 volume , will result in the loss of security settings volume ownership data and access permissions. With the opposite action merging a non-secured volume to a secured one , the main volume security settings will be assigned to the resultant volume.

Caution: Formatting destroys all data that is currently stored on the volume. In this case, the formatting window is part of the Create Volume Wizard. To format a volume 1. Right-click the volume that you want to format, and then click Format. In File system, select the file system that you want to create on the volume. For the list of supported file systems, see Supported file systems.

In Cluster size, specify the cluster size—also known as allocation unit size—for the file system. Optionally, in Volume label, type the volume label that you want to assign to the volume to better differentiate it from other volumes.

The maximum number of characters in the volume label depends on the file system that you selected—see Changing a volume label p. Click OK to add the pending volume formatting operation. More about cluster sizes Using the default cluster size is normally the best option.

Smaller cluster sizes allow for more efficient storage if the volume is to contain a vast number of very small files.

Bigger cluster sizes make it possible for the volume to have a size beyond normal limits. For example, these programs may incorrectly calculate the total and available space on such volumes. The space that was occupied by the volume becomes unallocated space on the corresponding disk or disks. Caution: After you delete the volume, all data that is stored on it will be lost. Tip: Deleting a mirrored volume means deleting both of its mirrors. For information on how to delete only one mirror, see Removing a mirror p.

To delete a volume 1. Right-click the volume that you want to delete, and then click Delete volume. Click OK to add the pending volume deletion operation.

When splitting a basic volume, you can move some files and folders from it to the new volume. The original basic volume will retain its type primary or logical , volume letter, and volume label. The original volume needs to have at least 16 MB of free space. The required space will be available again as soon as splitting is finished. Caution: Volumes that contain encrypted files cannot be split.

Also, dynamic volumes cannot be split. To split a basic volume 1. Right-click the basic volume that you need to split, and then click Split volume. To move some files and folders from the original volume to the new volume, select the Move selected files to created volume check box, then click Select, and then select the files and folders that you want to move.

Caution: When splitting a boot volume, avoid moving system folders, such as Windows or Program Files. Otherwise, the corresponding Windows operating system will likely fail to start. Specify the size of the new volume, by typing it or by dragging the slider. Click OK to add the pending volume splitting operation.

To change a volume label 1. Right-click the volume whose label you want to change, and then click Change label. In New label, type the new volume label. The OK button will remain disabled as long as the label you typed contains such characters.

Click OK to add the pending volume label changing operation. Volumes whose labels cannot be changed You cannot assign a volume label to a volume whose file system is shown as Unsupported, Not formatted, or Linux swap. The volume label of this volume cannot be changed. For information on how to select the disk layout, see Disk layout p.

Caution: Avoid changing the drive letter of a boot volume. Otherwise, the corresponding Windows operating system or some of the installed programs might fail to work normally. To change a drive letter 1. Right-click the volume whose drive letter you want to change, and then click Change letter. Select a new drive letter from the list of available ones. To leave the volume without a drive letter, click Do not assign a letter.

Click OK to add the pending drive letter changing operation. It converts a primary volume on such disk to a logical volume.

Each basic MBR disk can have either up to four primary volumes, or up to three primary volumes plus an unlimited number of logical volumes. You need to convert a primary volume to logical if you want to later create a fifth volume on a disk that currently has four primary volumes. The size of the converted volume might differ slightly from that of the original primary volume, because some space might be required to store supplementary information.

Caution: Avoid converting the active volume or the system volume to logical. Otherwise, the machine will likely become unbootable. You can later convert the volume back to primary—see Convert to primary p. To convert a primary volume to logical 1. Right-click the primary volume that you want to convert to logical, and then click Convert to logical. Click OK to add the pending primary volume to logical conversion operation. It converts a logical volume on such disk to a primary volume.

You need to convert a logical volume to primary if you want to restore the bootability of a machine whose system volume was accidentally converted to logical.

If the disk contains more than one logical volume, you can convert a logical volume to primary only when there are two or less primary volumes on the disk. You can later convert the volume back to logical—see Convert to logical p. To convert a logical volume to primary 1.

Right-click the logical volume that you want to convert to primary, and then click Convert to primary. Click OK to add the pending logical volume to primary conversion operation. For example, NTFS volumes have a partition type of 07h. To change a partition type 1. Right-click the volume whose partition type you need to change, and then click Change partition type. Click OK to add the pending partition type changing operation.

To specify the volume from which the machine will start, you need to set a volume to become active. A disk can have only one active volume, so if you set a volume as active, the volume, which was previously active, will be automatically unset. To set a volume active 1.

Right-click the primary volume you want to set as active, and then click Mark as active. If there is no other active volume in the system, the pending volume setting active operation volume will be added. If another active volume is present in the system, you will receive a warning that the previous active volume will no longer be active. Click OK in the Warning window to add the pending volume setting active operation.

Even if you have the operating system on the new active volume, in some cases the machine will not be able to boot from it. You will have to confirm your decision to set the new volume active. Adding a mirror to a basic or simple volume means converting that volume to a mirrored volume, which involves copying the volume’s data to another disk.

To add a mirror to a volume 1. Right-click the basic or simple volume to which you want to add a mirror, and then click Add mirror. Select the disk on which you want to place the mirror. The disks that do not have enough unallocated space to create the mirror are not available for selection. If you are adding a mirror to a basic volume or are placing the mirror on a basic disk, you will receive a warning that the corresponding disk or disks will be converted to dynamic.

Click OK to add the pending addition of a mirror to the volume operation. Removing a mirror from a mirrored volume means converting that volume to a simple volume, thus losing fault tolerance.

The space that was occupied by the removed mirror becomes unallocated space on the corresponding disk provided that that disk is not missing. You cannot remove a mirror when both disks containing the mirrored volume are missing.

To remove a mirror from a mirrored volume 1. Right-click the mirrored volume from which you want to remove a mirror, and then click Remove mirror. Select the mirror that you want to remove. Note: If one of the mirrors is located on a missing disk, you can remove only that mirror. Click OK to add the pending mirror removal operation. Breaking a mirrored volume means converting its two mirrors into two independent simple volumes with initially identical content.

One of the two volumes will retain the drive letter and volume label of the mirrored volume. This operation differs from removing a mirror—see Remove mirror p. You can break a mirrored volume only when the disks containing both of its mirrors are online.

To break a mirrored volume 1. Right-click the mirrored volume that you want to break, and then click Break mirror. To not assign a drive letter to the volume, click Do not assign the letter. The other mirror will be assigned the drive letter and volume label of the original mirrored volume.

Click OK to add the pending mirrored volume breaking operation. It can be especially useful in cases when a volume cannot be seen by Windows Explorer—for example, a volume with Linux file systems, or when running Acronis Disk Director from bootable media where there are no tools to view what is exactly stored on a volume.

To browse a volume’s content 1. Right-click the volume whose contents you need to browse, and then click Browse files. In the Browse window, expand the folder tree to explore files and folders on the selected volume. When you are finished with browsing, click OK. Note: The Browse window shows the real volume contents, read from the disk.

If there are some operations pending, such as splitting a volume, you will not be able to explore the locked volumes until the operations are committed or canceled. However, operations on folders in the Browse window are executed immediately. Hard disk volumes should be checked before configuring any operation on them—see Precautions p. Acronis Disk Director does not perform the checking itself, rather it launches the Check Disk tool Chkdsk.

To check a volume 1. Right-click the volume whose file system you need to check, and then click Check. To find and fix errors if any , select the Fix found errors check box. To locate bad sectors and recover readable information, select the Try to fix found bad sectors check box.

Click OK to run the volume check. If the volume contains a very large number of files—for example, millions—the check can take a long time to complete. The results of the operation will be displayed in a separate window. Note: If the volume is in use, the tool can only check it for errors, but cannot repair them. The checking and fixing of errors on this volume will be performed the next time you restart the system. Defragmentation increases the system performance by consolidating fragmented files on a volume.

Fragmentation occurs when the operating system cannot allocate enough contiguous space to store a complete file as a unit and thus, writes different pieces of a file in gaps between other files. The defragmentation rearranges pieces of each file as close together and contiguously as possible, minimizing the time required to access it.

To defragment a volume 1. Right click the volume you need to defragment, and then click Defragment. In the Defragmentation window, click OK to start defragmenting the volume. Depending on the amount of fragmented files, the defragmentation may take a long time to complete.

The results will be displayed in a separate window. Smaller cluster sizes allow for more efficient storage of smaller files by reducing the amount of wasted disk space. Furthermore, larger files may become more fragmented across the volume, increasing the amount of time that is needed to access them.

Bigger cluster sizes improve performance by decreasing the time to access to larger files. However, having a bigger cluster size wastes disk space if the typical size of the files stored on the volume is smaller than the cluster size. To change cluster size 1. Right-click the volume whose cluster size you need to change, and then click Change cluster size. Select the required cluster size from the list. The default cluster size is marked in the list as default. The default cluster size depends on the volume size and the type of the file system.

Important: The program does not allow you to select a particular cluster size if, the free volume space will decrease to the point where the data will not fit on the volume.

Acronis Disk Director displays warning messages, when you select such cluster sizes. Click OK to add the pending cluster size changing operation. Right-click the volume whose file system you need to convert, and then click Change file system.

Select the required file system. Click OK to add the pending file system changing operation. Hiding a volume means changing the volume type so that the operating system cannot “see” this volume. You may want to hide a volume in order to protect information from unauthorized or casual access. Hiding a volume does not affect letters assigned to other volumes, but the hidden volume loses its letter and this letter becomes free for assignment.

Important: Hiding a volume that contains a swap file will prevent your machine from booting. Hiding a system volume or a boot volume with a currently running operating system is disabled in order to retain your machine bootability. To hide a volume 1. Right-click the volume you need to hide, and then click Hide volume. If the volume has mount points, they will be removed automatically. Click OK to add the pending volume hiding operation. To unhide a volume 1. Right-click the hidden volume you need to unhide, and then click Unhide volume.

The program automatically assigns the first vacant drive letter to this volume. Click OK to add the pending volume unhiding operation. All of a files information, with the exception of its actual name and data, is stored in the i-node. Each file has its own i-node. Each i-node contains a file description, including number, file type, size, data block pointers, etc. Space for i-nodes is allocated when you install the operating system or when a new file system is created.

The maximum number of i-nodes, and hence the maximum number of files, is set at file system creation. Running out of i-nodes prohibits the creation of additional files and directories on the volume even if there is sufficient disk space. I-nodes themselves consume disk space, so specifying the i-node density lets you organize disk space in the optimal way. I-node density is determined by specifying the number of bytes per i-node. Usually, the default value is bytes per i-node.

Important: If you change the i-node density of a boot volume the operating system will become unbootable. To restore the system bootability use a boot loader. To specify i-node density 1. In Bytes per i-node, specify the required value. This will allocate more space for files and less for i-nodes.

This will allocate more space for i-nodes and less for data. The more i-nodes there are in the file system, the less likely you will not run of i-nodes. Click OK to add the pending i-node density changing operation.

In this section Disk initialization The newly detected disks appear in the disks and volumes list as Not initialized. To initialize a disk or disks 1. Right-click the newly added disk or any of newly added disks , and then click Initialize.

In the Disk Initialization window, select the other not initialized disks if there are several , and set the disk partitioning scheme MBR or GPT and the disk type basic or dynamic for every selected disk. Click OK to add the pending disk initialization operation. After the initialization, all the disk space remains unallocated and so still impossible to be used for program installation or file storage.

To be able to use it, you need to either create a new volume—see Creating a volume p. If you decide to change the disk settings it can be done later using Acronis Disk Director The cloning operation transfers all the source disk data to a target disk. Otherwise, the machine might not be able to boot from the target disk. To clone a basic disk 1. The program displays a list of partitioned disks and asks you to select the source disk, from which data will be transferred to another disk.

In the Select a disk as target for the cloning operation window, select a basic disk as target for the cloning operation. The program enables you to select a target disk if its size is sufficient to hold all the data from the source disk without any loss.

If there is some data on the target disk, you will receive a warning stating that this data will be lost after the cloning. So, if the target disk is the same size and even larger, it is possible to transfer all the information there exactly as it is stored at the source. When cloning to a larger target disk, the remaining space becomes unallocated. The program will automatically increase or decrease if possible the size of the volumes with respect to the target disk size.

Thus, no unallocated space appears on the target disk. Note for smaller target disks: the program analyzes the target disk to establish whether its size will be sufficient to hold all the data from the source disk without any loss. If such transfer with proportional resizing of the source disk volumes is possible, then you will be allowed to proceed.

If due to the size limitations safe transfer of all the source disk data to the target disk is impossible even with the proportional resizing of the volumes, then the Clone basic disk operation will be impossible and you will not be able to continue. If you are about to clone a disk containing the system volume, pay attention to the Advanced options, described later in this section. Click Finish to add the pending disk cloning operation The results of the pending operation are immediately displayed as if the operation had been performed.

Using advanced options When cloning a disk containing the system volume, you need to retain operating system bootability on the target disk volume, by copying the original disk’s NT signature. For the operating system to remain bootable, the target disk must have the same NT signature as the source disk.

Important: Two disks with the same NT signature cannot work properly under one operating system. After cloning the disk and copying the NT signature, you should remove one of the disks from the machine. If you need to copy the NT signature: 1.

Select the Copy NT signature check box. You receive the warning stating that you will have to remove one of the two hard disk drives from the machine. The Turn off the machine after the cloning operation check box is selected and disabled automatically. Click Finish to add the pending operation.

Click Commit on the toolbar and then click Proceed in the Pending Operations window. Wait until the task is finished. Wait until the machine is turned off. Disconnect either the source or the target hard disk drive from the machine. Start up the machine. If you need to leave an NT signature: 1. Click to clear the Copy NT signature check box, if necessary. Important: If you have a primary volume, belonging to an MBR disk, and convert the disk first to GPT and then back to MBR, the volume will be logical and will not be able to be used as a boot volume.

You can convert this volume to primary, as described in Converting a logical volume to primary p. Note: A GPT-partitioned disk reserves the space at the end of the partitioned area necessary for the backup area, which stores copies of the GPT header and the partition table. If the disk is full and the volume size cannot be automatically decreased, the conversion of the MBR disk to GPT will fail. If you plan to install an operating system that does not support GPT disks, the reverse conversion of the disk to MBR is also possible through the same menu items.

The name of the operation will be listed as Convert to MBR. However, you can perform the following conversions to reach the goal using the program: 1. MBR disk conversion: dynamic to basic using the Convert to basic operation. GPT disk conversion: basic to dynamic using the Convert to dynamic operation. For example, if such conversion will stop the disk from being accessed by the system, the operating system will stop loading after such conversion or some volumes on the selected GPT disk will not be accessible with MBR e.

To convert a basic disk to dynamic 1. Right-click the basic disk you want to convert, and then click Convert to dynamic. You will receive a final warning about the basic disk being converted to dynamic.

Click OK to add the pending basic to dynamic disk conversion operation. Note: A dynamic disk uses the last megabyte of the physical disk to store the database, including the four-level description Volume-Component-Partition-Disk for each dynamic volume. If during the conversion to dynamic it turns out that the basic disk is full and the size of its volumes cannot be decreased automatically, the basic disk to dynamic conversion operation will fail.

Should you decide to revert your dynamic disks back to basic ones—for example, if you want to start using an operating system on your machine that does not support dynamic disks—you can convert your disks using the same menu items, though the operation now will be named Convert to basic. System disk conversion The program does not require an operating system reboot after conversion of a basic disk that contains one or more boot volumes to dynamic if: 1.

The machine runs this operating system. Caution: The conversion of a disk containing boot volumes takes a certain amount of time. Any power loss, unintentional turning off of the machine or accidental pressing of the Reset button during the procedure could result in bootability loss. For machines where more than one operating system is installed, the program ensures bootability of each of the operating systems.

This operation is available only for a dynamic disk that is empty or contains only one or more simple volumes, with each simple volume occupying a single region on the disk. These volumes will become basic volumes. To convert a dynamic disk to basic 1. Right-click the dynamic disk you need to convert, and then click Convert to basic.

You will receive a final warning about the dynamic disk being converted to basic. You will be advised about the changes that will happen to the system if the chosen disk is converted from dynamic to basic.

Click OK to add the pending dynamic to basic disk conversion operation. After the conversion the last 8 MB of disk space is reserved for the future conversion of the disk from basic to dynamic. In some cases the possible unallocated space and the proposed maximum volume size might differ for example, when the size of one mirror establishes the size of the other mirror, or the last 8 MB of disk space is reserved for the future conversion of the disk from basic to dynamic.

Boot disk conversion The program does not require an operating system reboot after dynamic to basic conversion of the disk, if: 1. The online status means that a basic or dynamic disk is accessible in the read-write mode. You may need to change an online disk to offline in order to protect it from unintentional use, for example a disk is corrupted or has bad sectors. To make a disk offline 1. Right click the online disk, and then click Change status to offline.

In the appearing window, click OK to confirm the operation. The disk you took offline also becomes Missing. To recover Mirrored volumes, you need to take the offline disk online, and then reactivate it. The offline status means that a dynamic disk is accessible in the read-only mode. You may need to change an offline disk to online to make the disk that you switched to offline previously fully accessed.

To make a disk online 1. Right click the offline disk, and then click Change status to online. If the dynamic disk has the offline status and the disk’s name is Missing, this means that the disk cannot be located or identified by the operating system.

It may be corrupted, disconnected, or powered off. Normally, all dynamic disks created within the same machine and operating system are members of the same disk group.
