Managing Disk Storage

  1. Use the Disk Management snap-in to view the disks and partitions installed in your system.

  2. If you have an empty disk drive available, create a basic disk partition (primary or extended) and format it with a filesystem.

  3. Upgrade an existing basic disk with two or more partitions to a dynamic disk.

  4. If you have two drives available, try creating a spanned volume, deleting it, and creating a striped volume.

  5. Use the Disk Defragmenter snap-in to analyze and defragment an NTFS or FAT volume.

  6. Set up disk quotas for all users. Log on as a non-Administrator user and save files until you reach the quota. As the Administrator, view the quota entries and note the user’s status.

  7. Encrypt a folder and verify that it can still be accessed. Decrypt it by disabling the Encryption option.

  8. Use NTBACKUP to back up and restore files. Because backups can be made to a disk folder, you can use a folder on the same disk if you do not have a separate disk or tape drive.
