the volume. Next, Finish. Now we wait just a minute while the new volume is created. All right, the art volume has been defined. There is currently no files in the volume. Notice that when we do create a volume, additional information about it is displayed right here. We know that it's the art volume, been assigned a drive letter of E, six gigabytes in size, using the NTFS file system, its status is healthy and it is a primary partition. Now, because this is a data partition with no operating system installed, there really isn't anything else as far as attributes of the volume, but notice up here on this zero for our system reserved and our C volume, because these are system volumes, that is, they are volumes where Windows has beeninstalled, more information is displayed. For example, the system reserved volume is a systemvolume. It's active, it's a primary partition, and the C volume is a boot partition where the operation system would boot from. It contains a page file, can be used to create a crash dump, and it's also a primary partition. The E volume, on the other hand, is just a primary partition. It's not a system volume, it's not bootable, does not contain a page file, and it's not an active partition, and it cannot accept dump file the way these partitions up here can. At this point, we have one partition, one volume, defined on Disk 1. Let's go ahead and create some more volumes out of the unallocated space here on Disk 1. Let's create another six-gigabyte volume on Disk 1. We'll assign it drive letter F. Once again, we use NTFS, and let's give it a volume label of data. Next, finish, and we'll wait while that volume is created. So at this point, we have two volumesusing two primary partitions on Disk

1. We have art volume and a data volume. We still have 20 gigs of unallocated space over here. Let's create another simple volume. Another six gigs, and we'll assign it drive letter G. NTFS file system, and this time we'll give it a volume label of finance. And now we have our finance volume defined on Disk 1. Still have 14 gigs of unallocated space. Let's create yet another new simple volume. Six gigabytes in size, just like the others. We'll assign it drive letter H. NTFS file system, and this time the volume label will be stats. All right, so now we have our stats volume. Now, notice that something significant happened. Over here, we have three primary partitions. When we created that fourth partition, Disk Management automatically first created an extended partition for our fourth partition instead of a standard primary partition, and then within that extended partition, created a logical partition for the stats volume H. Remember, because we're dealing with a basic disk, we're still constrained by all the partitioning rulesthat apply when you use MBR partitioning. You're only allowed to have a total of four partitions on a basic disk. What we have here are three primary partitions, one extended partition, and then within that extended partition, we have logical partitions where we can create additional volumes. This is designed to get us

    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.
