Displays a list of disks, of partitions in a disk, or of volumes in a disk.

For examples of how this command can be used, see Examples.


list {disk|partition|volume}


Parameter Description


Displays a list of disks and information about them, such as their size, amount of available free space, whether the disk is a basic or dynamic disk, and whether the disk uses the master boot record (MBR) or GUID partition table (GPT) partition style.


Displays the partitions listed in the partition table of the current disk.


Displays a list of basic and dynamic volumes on all disks.


  • When listing partitions on a dynamic disk, the partitions may not correspond to the dynamic volumes on the disk. This discrepancy occurs because dynamic disks contain entries in the partition table for the system volume or boot volume (if present on the disk). They also contain a partition that occupies the remainder of the disk in order to reserve the space for use by dynamic volumes.

  • The disk, partition or volume marked with an asterisk (*) is the one with focus.
