Win32_DiskPartition class

The Win32_DiskPartition WMI class represents the capabilities and management capacity of a partitioned area of a physical disk on a computer system running Windows. Example: Disk #0, Partition #1.

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all of the inherited properties. Properties are listed in alphabetic order, not MOF order.

CreationClassName
Data type: string.
Access type: Read-only

Name of the first concrete class to appear in the inheritance chain used in the creation of an instance. When used with the other key properties of the class, the property allows all instances of this class and its subclasses to be uniquely identified.

Description

Description of the object.

DeviceID
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Key

Unique identifier of the disk drive and partition, from the rest of the system.

Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only

Index number of the disk containing this partition.

Example: 0

ErrorCleared
Data type: boolean

Number of hidden sectors in the partition.

Example: 63

Index
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only

Index number of the partition.

Date the object was installed. This property does not need a value to indicate that the object is installed.

LastErrorCode
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only

Last error code reported by the logical device.

Name
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Label by which the object is known. When subclassed, the property can be overridden to be a key property.

NumberOfBlocks
Data type: uint64
Access type: Read-only

Total number of consecutive blocks, each block the size of the value contained in the BlockSize property, which form this storage extent. Total size of the storage extent can be calculated by multiplying the value of the BlockSize property by the value of this property. If the value of BlockSize is 1, this property is the total size of the storage extent.

For more information about using uint64 values in scripts, see Scripting in WMI.

PNPDeviceID

PowerManagementSupported
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only

If True, the device can be power-managed (can be put into suspend mode, and so on). The property does not indicate that power management features are currently enabled, only that the logical device is capable of power management.

Purpose
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Description of the media and its use.

RewritePartition
Data type: boolean

Qualifiers: Units (Bytes)

Total size of the partition.

Example: 1059045376

For more information about using uint64 values in scripts, see Scripting in WMI.

For more information about using uint64 values in scripts, see Scripting in WMI.

Status
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MaxLen (10)

Current status of the object. Various operational and nonoperational statuses can be defined. Operational statuses include: "OK", "Degraded", and "Pred Fail" (an element, such as a SMART-enabled hard disk drive, may be functioning properly but predicting a failure in the near future). Nonoperational statuses include: "Error", "Starting", "Stopping", and "Service". The latter, "Service", could apply during mirror-resilvering of a disk, reload of a user permissions list, or other administrative work. Not all such work is online, yet the managed element is neither "OK" nor in one of the other states.

The values are:

"OK"
"Error"
"Degraded"
"Unknown"
"Pred Fail"
"Starting"
"Stopping"
"Service"
"Stressed"
"NonRecover"
"No Contact"
"Lost Comm"
