Opening headingEdit

Some more information justifying "In addition, converting to dynamic disks can cause major problems." would be helpful, otherwise this should be deleted, I feel.

The Logical Disk Manager is available also on Windows 2000, not only on XP/2003/Vista (as written in the first paragraph). Ady (talk) —Preceding comment was added at 13:03, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

What about Windows NT? What options did it have for manipulating partitions? Ham Pastrami (talk) 14:45, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

In Windows Server 2008?Edit

Is it also in Windows Server 2008? I ask because the intro doesn't list it. --Pmsyyz (talk) 01:30, 9 October 2008 (UTC)


Basically this article explains how the file system works on Windows, but not what the "Logical Disk Manager" does. —Preceding unsigned comment added by IceHunter (talkcontribs) 18:35, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

I'm not an expert, but I added some text to the overview. Hopefully this answers your concern. JKeck (talk) 17:35, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Logical Disk ManagerDisk Manager — What is Logical Disk Manager? The end-user will only see "Disk Manager"! -- (talk) 14:00, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

  • Strong oppose the end user sees "Disk Management", and Disk Manager is an article, so I don't think you should overwrite it. (talk) 04:59, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

This article mixes "dynamic disk" with "dynamic volume", "basic disk" with "basic volume" (although those two look like they are the same thing), fails to define "dynamic disk" in the "overview" section when first mentioned, etc. I think i could fix the overview section by guessing what it is trying to convey, but that's hardly acceptable.
Also, "Dynamic disks provide the capability for software implementations of RAID." I thought that it is the Logical Disk Manager which provides a software implementation of RAID levels 0, 1, and 5, or some similarity/equivalence to those. --Jerome Potts (talk) 20:44, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

There is also a serious discombobulation between partition and volume. It is interchanged like it is the same thing, yet then it goes into explaining that under LDM there is a single partition with dynamic volumes on it . . . Make up your mind. Partitions are not volumes, and volumes are not partitions (talk) 12:43, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Threatening usageEdit

What the heck is "Threatening usage"? Should that section perhaps be titled "Dangerous operations"? - dcljr (talk) 05:08, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

I deleted the section because of its many problems, including lack of reliable sources, non-neutrality and out-of-context discussion. As far it concerns your question, however, not supporting a certain partition format is either lack of support by design or a bug, not dangerous/threatening usage/operations.

Add redirection to this article when searching for "diskmgmt.msc"Edit

Similar to how looking up `mstsc` or `mstsc.exe` redirects to wiki/Remote_Desktop_Services#Remote_Desktop_Connection. I would add this but I don't know how to create redirections like this. Could somebody more skilled at MediaWiki editing add support for this, please? -- (talk) 12:34, 8 July 2021 (UTC)
