When I press Esc …
After checking drive integrity, I again get the opportunity to say how much space will be used for the logical drives within the extended partition.
As you can see, I have chosen to use 1800 megs. After entering, I immediately get another screen to use the balance.
And after entering on that one:
I’m done with FDisk!! Now, I must reboot and format the new drives. Drive letters may change. In this case, the drive letters will follow the letters of the drives on my primary drive.
So much for FDisk. FDisk is a very powerful tool, but it is also a limited tool. It will destroy all data on a drive. There is no way of modifying partitions with FDisk without destroying the data on that disk.
