A user has installed two new drives in one of the computers in the computer lab and has been unable to format Disk1 from the command prompt.
The lab requires that Disk1 be a dynamic disk configured with two partitions. The first partition must be 256,000 MB in size and mapped to drive F. The second
partition must be 512,000 MB in size and mapped to drive G.
The new partitions must be formatted to ensure that users’ files can be secured from other users and that disk must be configured to account for future redundancy.
Instructions: Conduct the necessary steps within the Disk Manager to accomplish these tasks. When you have completed the simulation, please, select the Done
button to submit.
Answer: Here is the solution below
1. Right click on disk 1, click on initialize
2. Choose disk and option as MBR. Hit ok.
3. Again, right click on disk 1 and choose convert to dynamic disk.
4. Now right click on disk 1 and choose new simple volume.
5. Specify storage as 256000 and assign a drive letter F and choose file system as NTFS and click finish.
6. Do the same thing for rest of space of disk 1, assigning 512000MB and using Disc G
