Acronis True Image WD Edition supports large hard disk drives with a capacity of more than 2TB. This support is provided even if the operating system does not have support for such hardware. For more information see Acronis Extended Capacity Manager.
The recommended offset for Solid State Drives (SSD) is a multiple of 64 KB (most commonly, 1024KB or 2048 sectors).
Acronis True Image WD Edition provides full support of SSDs. It keeps the proper offset of SSD during such operations as image recovery and cloning. Specifically, full support means that:
- If you recover a disk backup to an SSD or clone a disk to an SSD, the offset will be automatically set to the default 1024 KB (2048 sectors).
- If you recover a partition backup to a target empty non-partitioned (unallocated) SSD, the offset will be automatically set to the default 1024 KB (2048 sectors).
- If you recover a partition backup to a target empty partitioned SSD, the target SSD will keep its original offset.
- NVMe interface was supported in the drive detection mechanism.
