Physical and Logical device views > Physical device view options

You can choose the way information is displayed in the Physical devices view. To choose a view option, click the associated button in the Logical devices view.

Displays physical device information in text format. This is the default view for internal RAID storage devices.


Displays physical device information in full size capacity format. A full-length bar is displayed for each drive, regardless of capacity. A small segment on each drive is reserved for the RAID signature; this area is indicated by a gray "cap" at the end of each bar.

Note: A drive shaded in light blue is not part of any array.

Displays physical device information in relative size capacity format. A full length bar is displayed for the largest drive. Proportionally shorter bars are displayed for other drives.

Displays physical device information in enclosure view format. Drives in the enclosure are shown in the physical slots they occupy with the proper vertical or horizontal orientation. Empty slots are shown as drive outlines. This is the default view for systems with an attached storage enclosure.

Attention: The enclosure view button is visible in the Logical devices view only if an enclosure is attached to the system. HostRAID controllers do not support enclosure view. Nor do some older enclosures.
