Identifiers partition in IFW.

Postby 9285 » Sat Feb 11, 2017 1:59 am

What do the numbers in the second half of the partition identifiers?
Why one third digit 0, while in the other eight?

The last two digits are the ID value used for the volume. They are somewhat random (or can appear that way). If you prefer, you can enable the "Sequential Volume IDs" option in Settings so they're numbered in order starting with 01.

Thanks for the answer to the previous question!
There is one more question.
If the first two digits (and the list of topics) correspond to the order of entries in the partition table, why this is not in the list of volumes extended partition? It is confusing in identifying volumes.

The partition and volume ID numbers are used by the TeraByte programs to reference the partitions in their current state when using command line operations. ID numbers may change with partition changes.

For the order issue, what does Partition Information show? partinfg.exe is located in the IFW installation folder. After running it, you would need to expand the extended partition entry to see the volumes. You can also export the report to a text file.

I think that it would be logical assignment of partition ID In accordance with the partition layout on the disk precedence.
