Looking up disk information is easy with PowerShell.
You might wonder why you need to look up disk information. Well, for starters, it wouldn’t hurt to know the specific details of your hard disk.
Do actually know the kind of hard drive you have? Are you even familiar with the speed of your hard drive? Well, if you’re not, then it’s high time you know about those details. PowerShell is a tool that you can use to get specific details on your hard disk.
Once PowerShell is open, you have two options. The first option is for you to run the command get-wmiobject -class win32_logicaldisk to retrieve general information.
You can also resort to using the second option. This requires you to run the core command wmic diskdrive get to retrieve hard drive properties.
The two options from PowerShell can, definitely, help you look up disk information. Now, for the less tech savvy folks out there, it might be a bit too intimidating to do it. Who would have thought that looking up disk information could be intimidating?
Well, it really isn’t. If you choose option one, all you have to do is to open PowerShell. You’ll get a screen where you can run the command get-wmiobject -class win32_logicaldisk. Just type in that particular command beside the path PS C:\User\Name> then press enter. Just like magic you’re going to see the disk information that you need to know.
If you opt for the second option, make sure to open PowerShell as an administrator. You can do that by clicking on Windows PowerShell once you see it in the search. Then just type in the core command wmic diskdrive get and then press enter.
Using the PowerShell tool to look up disk information shouldn’t scare you at all. What should scare you is when you have to retrieve data from your hard drive. That takes more than just running simple commands. You really need to be a hard drive recovery expert. Chances are, you’re not.
It takes a lot of years of training and experience to become an expert in hard drive recovery. Truth be told, no software can do what the experts can do. As a matter of fact, software might even do more harm than good. If you’re serious about getting back your data, avoid using any kind of recovery software.
Even worse, don’t even try to do it yourself by watching random videos. There’s no way you can learn a skill by simply watching a random video once. Remember, the experts didn’t learn it that way. Instead, they underwent some serious training.
That being said, you need trained and experienced engineers to help you out in a data emergency. While these https://www.harddriverecovery.org/emergency_tips.html can help you out, you should really just get on the phone to an expert right away.
