Chapter 29. Managing the Hard Disk > Windows XP’s Disk Management Tools

Windows XP’s Disk Management Tools

Windows XP comes equipped with a handful of disk management tools, ranging from very powerful ones that can create hard disk stripe sets, create mirror disks, and/or beat a disk into submission, to a couple that are simply convenience items.

The most often-used tools are available right off the Tools tab of a drive’s Properties sheet. To reach the Properties sheet, right-click a drive in Explorer. Figure 29.1 shows the Properties tabs for both a FAT drive and an NTFS drive. Notice the difference in the number of tabs. NTFS has more options because of its support for security and quota management.
