GNOME Disks

GNOME Disks

GNOME Disks or simply, Disks, is the disk utility in GNOME. It provides a way to inspect, format, partition and configure disks and block devices. Disks can be used for partition management, S.M.A.R.T. monitoring, benchmarking, and software RAID.

Disks was previously known as GNOME Disk Utility or palimpsest, as well as DeviceKit-disks. DeviceKit-disks is part of DeviceKit which was planned to replace certain aspects of HAL. HAL and DeviceKit have both been deprecated.

Disks has been included in several Linux distributions including Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, Red Hat Enterprise and CentOS.
