DiskPart – Windows CMD Command

Disk Administration, Partition a disk. This page documents the Windows 8/10 + Server 2008-2016 versions of Diskpart.

When setting up a new drive, create in this order: Create Partition, Format drive, Assign drive letter.

When selecting a volume or partition, you can use either the number or drive letter or the mount point path.

The Windows GUI interface can also be used to assign a mount-point folder path to a drive. In Disk Manager, right-click the partition or volume, and click Change Drive Letter and Paths, then click Add and then type the path to an empty folder on an NTFS volume.

The Windows Recovery Console includes a simplified DISKPART command. It only provides functionality for adding and deleting partitions, but not for setting an active partition.

Always back up the hard disk before running diskpart.

The default SAN policy in Windows Server 2008 / R2 is now VDS_SP_OFFLINE_SHARED for all non-boot SAN disks.
This means that the disks will be offline at server startup (even if the drive contains a paging file)
