Exclusive regions are areas on any object visible on the R‑Studio for Linux 's Drives panel that are excluded from disk operations. R‑Studio for Linux never tries to read/write data from/to such area. Exclusive regions are necessary when, for example, there are areas with bad sectors on a hard drive, and it is necessary to avoid any disk operations with such areas to not inflict further damage to such drive and to speed work with it.
Note: R‑Studio for Linux does not create anything real on the disk. Exclusive regions are virtual objects that do not affect actual data on the disk.
