Back in the beginning of November, 2013, we shared with you the news according to which Acronis True Image has received full Windows 8.1 support and now, quite a while after that, “sister-software” Acronis Disk Director gets the same treatment.

Acronis International has released Acronis Disk Director 12 software, a tool which is most known as an all-in-one partition and drive management product. The present release doesn’t come with big new features in terms of usability, but it finally brings full Windows 8 compatibility and also support for Windows 8.1. Also, improved WinPE 4.0 and 5.0 support suggests that the latest version of Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit when creating bootable rescue media will be possible, as well.

Acronis Disk Director will now work flawlessly on Windows 8.1

Also, both WinPE and Linux-based boot discs are now fully compatible with UEFI-based systems, which is another feature that has been requested for far too long by its users. Just as before, you can use Acronis Disk Director to create and work with basic, dynamic, spanned, striped and mirrored volumes; it’s possible o resize, move, copy, split or merge volumes without losing any data. Besides this, you can use tools to clone drives, recover lost and damaged partitions, view and edit volumes at the sector level and many, many other features.

Acronis Global Consumer Business Senior Vice President and General Manager Nat Maple said the following:

With most computers now shipping with one large single partition hard drive, the most basic form of data protection available is to create different logical partitions for the operating system and your personal data, protecting your data in the case of an issue or infection of the operating system

You can get Acronis Disk Director 12 for $49.99 ($29.99 is for the upgrade) for a single PC and $79.99 ($47.99 for the upgrade) for three PCs.
