|A component of Microsoft Windows|

This utility prevents creating multipartition layout for removable media such as flash drives. It is also used for partitioning internal hard drives.
How it works
diskpart supports the use of scripts to automate its usage. For example, the following text file could be supplied to diskpart to create a new partition:
create partition logical size=2048 assign letter=F
The installed disks and their associated volumes and/or partitions can be viewed by these commands:
list disk list volume list partition
On the Recovery Console, which is included in all Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, there is a diskpart command which is significantly different from the one included in the actual operating system. It only provides functionality for adding and deleting partitions, but not for setting an active partition.
