This will be the volume name and lets call this

we need to provide a label for the file system. This will be the volume name. And let's call this volume data and to speed things up I'm going to use a quick format. Press Enter. And then we wait while the partition is formatted. Alright, noticed that the partition has now been formatted with the NTFS file system. The last thing we need to do is assign a drive letter to that volume so we can access it to store data on it. This is done using the assign command. Assign letter and then the letter we want to assign to this drive. If we come over here to file manager, we should see that C is taken of course with our system volume and E is taken for the existing volume. Those are already on Disk 3 up here. So, let's go ahead and assign it the next available drive letter. Let's use F. Tells us that we've successfully assigned drive letter F and notice when we did that, file manager recognized that something had happened and opened the drive for us

to view. And if we go back over here to our command prompt and we type list volumeand when we do we see that we now have a new volume defined, the data volume, it's drive letter Fand it uses the NTFS file system. Its status is currently healthy and it's 31 gigs in size. Creating a Volume on a GPT Disk 5:27-7:28 So, let's do the same thing again but this time let's create file system on a GPT disk. So, currently the only disk that has unallocated space on it is Disk 2. So, let's type select Disk 2 Now, let's specify that it use the GPT partitioning format, so we type 'convert GPT'. So, now Disk 2 uses the GPT partitioned format. Let's do 'create'. Now, let's create a partition on that disk. Create partition primary, but this time instead of using the entire disk let's specify a size. We enter size equals followed by the number of megabytes we want to use for this drive. So let's create just a 10 gigabyte partition on this drive by entering 10, 24, zero. 10,240 megabytes or 10 gigabytes. We were successful in creating the partition. List of partitions. Now, notice here because we're using a GPT disk that a small reserved partition was initially created. So, the 10 gigabyte partition we defined is actually partition two this time. So, to tell this part which partition we want to work on now. We need to type select part two and we need to format it with the NTFS file system.We'll give it a label of Finance and we do want to do a quick format so it won't take too long. Press Enter, then we'll wait while the format takes place we'll pause the recording, come back when it's done. Disk format is complete. Now, we just need to assign a drive letter. We use drive F for the data volume that we created on the MBR disk, so let's assign drive letter G this time to the volume we just defined on the GPT disk. And there we go. If we do a list volume now, we see the finance volume we just created as well.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
