Microsoft explains why the modern disk management function in Windows 10 settings is good

2 min read

Microsoft earlier brought modern disk management functions to Windows 10 in the developer channel, including the management of storage modules such as disks and volumes. In the future, the new disk management will surely replace the old version of the disk management.

Of course, this feature is still under development, so Microsoft still needs to continue to perform feature changes, because the features now provided are not enough to replace the old version of the disk management.

The development team explained in the latest blog why the new disk management function should be developed and why the new disk management function is more worthy of users to use.

Microsoft mentioned that there is a lot of features in progress, and the new disk management function is in it, and now beta users can use the new disk management.

The new disk management function can be used to manage disks and volumes, including viewing disk information, creating and formatting, and assigning drive letters and other related tasks.

The new version is also better integrated with functions such as disk space and storage failure pages. After the integration, users use related functions more smoothly.

The new version of the disk management function is Microsoft’s first settings page that uses a combination of C++/WinRT, which simplifies the interaction between modern UI and component object models.

This page has a real-time response to file system changes, which is different from the old applet components, for example, it can be displayed and operated immediately when an external drive is connected.

In addition, the new version also has full access to the keyboard and supports the use of the Narrator app to read aloud, which helps people with disabilities to better use disk management.

Of course, Microsoft also pointed out that the main goal of the current project is to manage the accessibility interface of device storage, and there is still a lot of work to be done next.
