Abstract

Simultaneous Display of and Interaction with Logical and Physical Views of Essential Hard Disk Storage Resource Disclosed is a method to display information within a GUI interface to a disk management software utility. The overall problem is that displaying information about the hard disk storage resources on a computer system is difficult to show in one, easy to read view. The advantage of this invention is that the user does not have to toggle between different views or settings in order to gain a comprehensive view of the essential data involved in making decisions regarding hard disk storage management, thereby enhancing ease of use and efficiency.
