2.Information on hard drives and logical disks

This section shows available information on hard drives and logical disks. These properties depend on the drive/disk type and appear only when applicable. Under Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista/2008/7/8/8.1/10, an IDE drive/disk may be represented as a SCSI device, that is why the SCSI Address section appears under these OSes for those drives/disks.

3.Properties controlling access to hard drives and logical disks

This section shows properties that control access (read and write) to hard drives and logical disks. They are set to their optimal values and should be altered only if access problems appear.

4.Partition properties

A partition is a continuous area on a hard drive, characterized by its offset and size. There are partitions on basic disks, dynamic disks, and recognized volumes and partitions. R-Studio treats regions like partitions.

5.Compound volume properties

A compound volume is a union of several partitions or other disk objects. Each union type has its own rules, unique for each compound volume type. Among compound volumes are: Volume Sets (RAIDs Level 0), Mirrors (RAIDs Level 1), RAIDs5 (RAIDs Level 5), both physical and created by the user (Virtual Volume Sets, Virtual Stripe Sets, Virtual Mirrors, Virtual RAID5).

6.LDM disks and volumes (Dynamic Disks)

LDM disks and volumes are volumes controlled by Logical Disk Manager (LDM). They are represented on a hard drive as a LDM database rather than partition tables. Under Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/2008/7/8/8.1/10, LDM disks are also called Dynamic Disks.

7.File System Volume properties

A File System (FS) volume is a disk object where a certain, supported by R-Studio, file system is present. There are two FS volume types: FS volume on a regular disk object and a recognized volume, found by a scan process. FS volume properties depend on volume's file system and type.

7.1.NTFS Volume properties

These properties are present for all NTFS volumes and represent their main properties. For recognized volumes, these values can be altered.

7.3.Ext2FS Volume properties

These properties are present for all Ext2FS volumes and represent their main properties. For recognized volumes, these values can be altered.

7.4.Recognized Volume properties

These properties are present for all recognized volumes, regardless of their file system type. They estimate how reliable those volumes are recognized. This is useful for fast search for, and selection of, optimally recognized volume to recover.
