Question 1: Incorrect You are in the process of preparing a storage device and must determine which file system to use.
Which of the following BEST describes the advantage of using the exFAT file system rather than
Support for volumes over 32 GB
Support for files over 4 GB
Lower memory and processor resource use
Access control lists and permissions Explanation
exFAT does not have the additional memory and processing overhead and problems that can
occur on removable storage when using NTFS. Both exFAT and NTFS support volumes over 32
GB and files over 4 GB. While exFAT supports some limited file permissions, NTFS provides
better control through granular permissions and access control lists.
Question 2: Incorrect You have just purchased a new USB drive that you want to use to troubleshoot the computers in
your company as well as other network devices, such as printers and projectors. You need to
format this new drive with a file system that will be recognized and used on all devices.
When formatting your USB drive, which of the following file system types would meet MOST, if not
all, of your needs?
FAT32 is your best choice. Many of the older operating systems (and non-PC systems like
printers, projectors, and TV sets) were initially installed or designed to use FAT32. 9/11/2019, 8:39 PM 2 of 7 Formatting your USB drive with any of the other file systems would make it incompatible with
many of the devices you need to maintain.
Question 3: Incorrect You are installing Windows 10 on a drive that was previously used for Windows 8.1. This drive has
one primary partition. While installing Windows, you want to ensure that the old files are deleted
and any bad sectors are located and marked as bad.
To achieve your desired goal, which of the following is the BEST option to run?
Full format Explanation
A full format starting with Windows Vista will overwrite data on the drive and scan the hard disk
for bad sectors.
A quick format does not overwrite data and does not check for bad sectors.
DiskPart is a disk partition utility operated with the command line. Since your drive already has a
partition, this utility is not required. Bootrec, or the bootrec.exe utility, is a tool provided by
Microsoft in Windows Recovery Environment, or the Windows RE. It is typically used for
activities such as fixing the master boot record.
Question 4: Correct What is required to control access to the file system using file and folder permissions on a
File permissions are only available under Windows for files on a partition formatted with NTFS,
not FAT32. The Encrypting File Service (EFS) with Windows encrypts individual files. The Ext4
file system is used on Linux systems.
Question 5: Incorrect You have added two new hard disks to a Windows computer. The disks are configured as basic
Which of the following could be configured on these disks? (Select TWO).
Spanned volumes 9/11/2019, 8:39 PM 3 of 7 Primary partitions
Extended partitions with logical drives
Striped volumes Explanation
Basic disks use primary and extended partitions. Each physical disk can have up to four primary
partitions or three primary partitions and one extended partition. Logical drives are defined
within an extended partition. The extended partition can be divided into multiple logical drives.
Dynamic disks support volumes that use discontiguous disk space. Simple volumes contain disk
space from a single hard disk (both contiguous and discontiguous space). Spanned volumes
contain disk space from multiple hard disks grouped into a single logical volume. Striped
volumes use equal partition sizes on two disks to create a volume. Data is divided and saved to
Question 6: Incorrect You have an extra disk on your system that has
with two logical drives. You want to convert the
losing any data. three primary partitions and an extended partition
partitions to simple volumes, preferably without Which of the following is the BEST step to perform?
Run the convert command.
Delete the partitions and re-create them as simple volumes.
Upgrade the disk to a dynamic disk.
Run the fixboot command to convert the partition type to GPT. Explanation
When you upgrade a basic disk to a dynamic disk, existing partitions are converted to simple
volumes. You can convert the disk without deleting partitions or losing any data. Use the
Convert command to change the file system from FAT32 to NTFS. The partition table type
(either MBR or GPT) does not affect the partition or volume type.
Question 7: Incorrect While configuring a computer, you find that you need to create, format, and manage the partitions
and volumes on your hard drives.
Which of the following is the BEST command line utility to use?
Disk Management 9/11/2019, 8:39 PM 4 of 7 Explanation
DiskPart is the command line utility you can use to create, format, and manage partitions and
Disk Management is the graphical utility you would use to do the same partition and volume
creation, formatting, and management tasks you can do with DiskPart. DiskMan does not exist.
format is a command line utility used to format disks for use with Windows. chkdsk is used to
find and fix errors on disks, volumes, and files. References

Question 8: Incorrect Match each disk type on the left with its corresponding description/features on the right. Each disk
type may be used once, more than once, or not at all.
Support up to 128 volumes.
Use primary and extended partitions.
Are supported by all operating systems.
Support volumes that use discontiguous disk space.
Store partitioning information in a hidden database on all such disks in the system.
Only support volumes made up of contiguous disk space.
Basic disks Explanation
• Use primary and extended partitions.
• Are supported by all operating systems.
• Only support volumes made up of contiguous disk space.
• Support up to 128 volumes.
• Support volumes that use discontiguous disk space.
• Store partitioning information in a hidden database on all such disks in the system.
Question 9: Incorrect If you want to boot from a hard drive, what must it have? 9/11/2019, 8:39 PM 5 of 7 Active partition
Extended partition Explanation
The active partition contains the boot sector, which is required to load an operating system. An
extended partition is a partition type on a basic disk. An extended partition can exist, but is not
required to boot.
Question 10: Incorrect Which partition type identifies the partition as one that holds the boot loader program used to start
the operating system?
The active partition identifies which partition holds the boot loader code. When the system
starts, it looks in the volume boot record (VBR) of the active partition to identify the location of
the boot loader code. The system partition is the partition that holds the operating system files.
This might be the same as the active partition, but can be different. A primary partition is a
partition type on a basic disk. An active partition must be a primary partition, but there can be
additional non-active primary partitions on a disk. An extended partition is a partition type that is
subdivided into logical drives. The extended partition cannot be the active partition.
Question 11: Incorrect Which of the following is true about primary partitions?
The active partition must be a primary partition.
Primary partitions exist on dynamic disks.
You can have a maximum of three primary partitions on a single disk.
Primary partitions are subdivided into logical drives. Explanation
A primary partition is a partition type used on basic disks. The active partition must be a primary
partition. Each physical disk can have up to four primary partitions or three primary partitions
and one extended partition. Logical drives are defined within an extended partition.
Question 12: Incorrect 9/11/2019, 8:39 PM 6 of 7 You want to set up a Windows system to also be able to boot to Linux. To be able to dual boot,
the system needs a partition on which to install Linux. However, you don't have an extra hard disk
that can be used for the Linux partition. The existing disk has no unpartitioned space available, but
it has about 300 GB of free space.
Which of the following disk management operations will BEST prepare your hard disk for dual
Shrink the primary partition.
Reformat the disk with the partitions needed for a dual boot system.
Convert the disk from physical partitions to logical partitions.
Convert the disk from basic to dynamic. Explanation
You can decrease the space used by primary partitions and logical drives by shrinking them into
adjacent, contiguous space on the same disk. For example, if you discover that you need an
additional partition but do not have additional disks, you can shrink the existing partition from
the end of the volume to create new unallocated space that can then be used for a new
Question 13: Incorrect Which disk types does Windows support? (Select TWO.)
Windows supports basic and dynamic disks. When you install Windows, your hard disks are
automatically initialized as basic. You can convert them to dynamic disks after Windows is
installed. You can use both basic and dynamic disks on the same computer system, but a
volume consisting of multiple disks, such as a mirrored volume, must use only one type of disk.
"Primary" and "extended" are terms that describe partition types on basic disks.
Question 14: Incorrect Which of the following conditions would prevent you from using a GUID Partition Table (GPT)
when setting up a disk drive?
You're setting up the drive to boot 64-bit Windows 7 on a UEFI-based computer.
You need to be able to create up to 128 partitions on the drive.
You're setting up the drive to boot Windows 10 on a computer that uses traditional BIOS. 9/11/2019, 8:39 PM 7 of 7 You need to set up the drive as a dynamic disk. Explanation
If you need the drive to boot Windows and the computer uses traditional BIOS (not UEFI), you
need to set up the drive with MBR.
A GPT drive can:
• Be basic or dynamic.
• Set up to boot 64-bit Windows 7 on a UEFI-based computer.
• Be used to create up to 128 partitions.
