Configuring Disks and Device Drivers tutorials

  • These topics, review the following key messages

  • The operating system of Windows 7 applies common tasks, leverages tools and skills similar to Windows Vista.

  • Microsoft is working on the devices worked with Windows Vista will also work with Windows 7. Microsoft has expanded the list of devices and updated peripherals device drivers are required.

  • We need to know how to create, manage simple, spanned, and striped volumes, become familiar with file system fragmentation, the tools that used to help defragment a volume, and understanding of disk quotas.


  • These are the terms its definitions and descriptions of the following should me known as these terms are used throughout the module.

  • Basic disk

  • Dynamic disk

  • Volume

  • System volume

  • Boot volume

  • Partition

  • Disk partitioning

  • Logical Block Address (LBA)


  • In this version of Windows, Disk Management provides the same features that we may already familiar with earlier versions, but even it adds some new features.

  • Simpler partition creation: When we right-click a volume, choose whether to create a basic, spanned, or striped partition directly from the menu.

  • Disk conversion options: When we add more than four partitions to a basic disk, we are prompted to convert the disk to dynamic or to the GUID partition table (GPT) partition style.

  • Extend and shrink partitions: we can extend and shrink partitions directly from the Windows interface.


Important points to be noted


  • In IT professionals they have to manage and deploy desktops, laptops, or virtual environments but windows 7 operating system simplifies common tasks, leverages existing tools and skills.

  • In most of computers that are running Windows 7 have a single physical disk configured this is not always the case. For example, there may be times when we want multiple operating systems on a single computer or we want the virtual memory on a different volume. So for that it is important that we understand how to create and manage simple, spanned, and striped volumes. Which help to optimize file system performance, as we must be familiar with file system fragmentation, the tools used to help defragment a volume. In addition, a good understanding of disk quotas helps us to manage the availability of disk space on installed volumes.
