Windows2012&2016 Disk Partition and Formatting

Note: Disk partitioning and formatting are high-risk behaviors, please operate with caution. The following operations are for newly purchased data disks. If it involves the processing of the original data disk, make sure to create a snapshot for the data disk of the Virtual Machines to avoid possible data loss.

The data disk just purchased, by default, is not partitioned and formatted. You can refer to the following methods to initially configure it:

  1. Right click in the lower left corner and select Disk Management. Select MBR (Master Boot Record) and confirm.

  1. Right-click New Simple Volume on the blank partition.

  1. It comes to next step by default.

  1. Select the drive of the data disk attach and it comes to next step by default.

  1. Select NTFS as the file system and tick the box to perform quick format.

  1. Click Finish, and the system will automatically form a new partition. The drive to which the data disk is attached is formatted.

If your problem still can not solved, please submit open ticket to us.
