New modern Windows 10 disk management tool

The modern Windows 10 disk management tool is Microsoft's latest attempt to migrate old-fashioned tools to modern versions in the Settings application.

Earlier this year, Microsoft announced a new disk management tool that it describes as a "modern" Windows 10 snap-in tool.

Windows 10

At least since Windows 95, users have had access to the tool diskmgmt.msc (Disk Management) for the management of disks, volumes and their partitions.

With the old management tool discs, you could extend it space of a specific partition, delete a partition, shrink a partition or change its settings.

Windows 10

With the latest preview versions of Insider, Microsoft has introduced a modern alternative solution called the "Manage Disks and Volumes" utility, which is better integrated with the Storage Spaces settings.

To access the modern tool, you need to go to Settings> System> Storage and click on Manage Disks and Volumes.

With the new tool, you can also manage the hard drives and volumes / partitions they contain, but the modern version it is very limited and lacks many options.

Microsoft says you can use modern disk management to view disk information, create and formatting of volumes.

You can also name the drivers with letters of your choice, but unlike the classic disk management tool, the modern version can not expand the partition space or display the distribution of the storage space in the form of a graphical representation.
