#2 More info about disk and partitions


Add more detail about disks and partition for non linux users.

Read on http://rolfje.wordpress.com/2007/11/06/clonezilla-m4d-sklz/:

Okay one more small example: In stead of using the screen real-estate and the nice fonts to indicate what disks are in the system and what partitions are on there, it just lists “sda1, sda2, sda5, sde1″ and their formats. When you are a windows user, and are backing up or restoring your precious data, you are likely to stop here. How do you know for sure that you’re reading from and writing to the right disk?

If Clonezilla was made for people, I would have expected a list according to these lines:

Harddisk 1 (320GB Seagate, SATA)
Partition 1 (120GB, FAT32, Volume label "My Windows")
Partition 2 (100GB, NTFS, Volume label "My Data")
Partition 3 (100GB, NTFS, Volume label "My Music")
Harddisk 2 (500GB Iomega, USB)
Partition 1 (500GB, FAT32, Volume label "Backupdisk")

    Well, if you can provide such a patch for us, we will definitely accept that.

    I'm not able to do a patch (maybe a mess!) because my lack in knowledge about that.

    But it maybe a good idea for someone else that could do that.

    If a manage a way to achieve it, i let you know.
