Disks (also known as gnome-disk-utility or GNOME Disks or palimpsest) is a udisks graphical front-end included in the gnome-disk-utility package. Disks can be used for partition management, S.M.A.R.T. monitoring, benchmarking, and software RAID (until v. 3.12). An introduction is included in the GNOME Documentation Project.
Disks used to be known as GNOME Disk Utility or palimpsest. Udisks was named DeviceKit-disks in earlier releases. DeviceKit-disks is part of DeviceKit which was planned to replace certain aspects of HAL. HAL and DeviceKit have been deprecated.
A unique feature of the partition manager is that tasks are executed in the background, even after the application has been closed by the user.
