220-1002 : CompTIA A+ Certification Exam: Core 2 : Part 01

  1. SIMULATION

    A technician has installed two new drives in one of the computers in the computer lab. Disk1 will be utilized for user and application data. Disk 2 has already been properly configured and has production data on in. The technician has been unable to format the appropriate disk from the command prompt.
    The lab requires that Disk1 be a dynamic disk configured with two partitions. The first partition must be 256,000 MB in size and mapped to drive F. The second partition must be 512,000 MB in size and mapped to drive G.
    The new partitions must be formatted to ensure that user’s files can be secured from other users and that the disk must be configured to account for future redundancy.
    Make sure to maintain a consistent file system.
