It consists of five items:|
| № || Name of the menu item || Description of the action of the activated function

from the Windows operating system partitions.
| 2 || Disable the logical drives on the system. || Table partitioning the hard disk specified by modified standard GUID Partition Table (GPT) |
so that the hard disk for the Windows operating system becomes busy
a foreign file system, and she ignores it.
| 3 || Connect disconnected partition. || The program restores the original value of the first four hard disk sectors, which posted

Physical and logical drives.
When you activate this menu item, the program displays the parameters of the physical hard disk drives (HDDs) and their layout
(Division) on ligicheskogo disc:
For all the physical disks, the program shows information about being on it the logical partitions and file systems, FAT or NTFS.
If the disc contains other types of sections, the information is not displayed on them:
- The first line, the three parameters:
- The channel (port) connect the drive to your computer;
- Hard Drives are disconnected from the system partition are marked with the symbols "OFF";
- markup type identifier MBR or GPT.
- The second line, four parameters:
- Number of the hard drive, starting from scratch;
- hard disk capacity;
- The unique serial number of hard disk. The licensed version for licensed disks, this field is displayed in green.
When displaying information about the flash cards and flash drives, this field is blank;
- License ID for the hard disk drive If licensed, the ID is displayed in green.
- The third line contains the name of the hard drive models, both internal and external, is connected via USB.
In Figures 3a and 3B diagrams are examples of the screens that display data on the disk to free and licensed version of:
- Literal logical disk ID, if this file system partition is used, or a serial number from 0 to 5;
- The file system type (FAT-16, FAT-32 or NTFS) partitions;
- partition size in gigabytes to two decimal places;
- LBA start partition on a physical disk (hard drive).
Рис. 3a. Free version, information about the physical and logical drives connected to the computer.
Рис. 3b. Licensed version, information about the physical and logical drives connected to the computer.
Disable logical drives on the system.
This operation is to change the first four hard disk sectors, which contains information about MBR and GPT partition.
They are modified by the standard GUID Partition Table (GPT) so
that the Windows disk becomes engaged in a foreign file system and the Windows operating system will not offer its format
and to scan to eliminate possible problems with the integrity of file structures.
A copy of these four sectors recorded at LBA 58, and is used to bring the disk layout to its original state.
For these changes to take effect, you need to reboot the system.
After rebooting, this disk for Windows will be untagged, but busy. If it were a hard disk failures sector space,
leading to crashes and hangs, then they will stop further hinder loading and operating system functioning.
WARNING! for information on this hard drive will have to restore the third-party programs, such as this one.
Fig. Figure 4 shows the dialog hard drive selection panel to disable the operating system:
Рис. 4. Note drive to disable it from the Windows operating system.
Connect the disconnected partition.
This function restores the original content of the first four sectors on the hard disk from a previously saved copy.
After this operation requires a reboot of the system,
Only after this operation will be the drive for Windows markup as before. If the present disk failures sector space, they
again lead to various problems and even hang Windows at system boot.
WARNING! When you restart the operating system can run a file system integrity check on the disk.
At the same time it issues a warning, and while awaiting the user's command to cancel the operation.
For some time the system waits for pressing the Esc key, if the user it does not, then the system
launch the file system integrity checking, and will "heal" the file system, removing the conflict for her files.
Some of these files are critical to get the user's files.
Disk Scan often leads to irreversible data loss, so in case of problems with the surface, this scan
Fig. 5 Hard Disk dialog is displayed select the panel to disable it from the Windows operating system:
Рис. 5. Select the hard drive to disconnect it from the operating system.
Reload / turn off the computer.
These features in particular the comments do not need, it may be noted that the speed of their performance is higher than similar operations,
performed by the system menu [Start] Windows operating system.
