Actions -> Create Acronis Secure Zone

Acronis Secure Zone is a secure partition that enables keeping backup archives on a managed machine disk space and therefore recovery of a disk to the same disk where the backup resides.


  • Enables recovery of a disk to the same disk where the disk's backup resides.
  • Offers a cost-effective and handy method for protecting data from software malfunction, virus attack, operator error.
  • Since it is internal archive storage, it eliminates the need for a separate media or network connection to back up or recover the data.
  • Can serve as a primary destination when using replication of backups.


  • Acronis Secure Zone cannot be organized on a dynamic disk.
  • Creating Acronis Secure Zone is not available in Trial mode.

Moving or resizing of locked volumes, such as the volume containing the currently active operating system, requires a reboot. Optional you can protect the Acronis Secure Zone from unauthorized access with a password:
