MBR is the standard partitioning scheme that’s been used on hard disks since the PC first came out. It supports 4 primary partitions per hard drive, and a maximum partition size of 2TB. The GPT disk itself can support a volume up to 264 blocks in length. . It can also support theoretically unlimited partitions Windows restricts these limits further to 256 TB for a single partition (NTFS limit), and 128 partitions.
What is New (Saturday, February 29, 2020)
1. [Added] – Option to show disk size
2. [Added] – Option to open diskpart under the menu
3. [Added] – x64 version
4. [Added] – Colorful lines instead of Grid Lines on List
Identifying Partition style in Windows:
1. Go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management
2. Select Disk Management On the left of the right lower pane,
3. Right-click on Disk which Windows installed on and select Properties.
4. Select the Volumes tab
5. The Partition style: entry will show as either Master Boot Record (MBR) or GUID Partition Table (GPT)..
For the novice users it is hard to determine Which partitioning scheme a particular disk is using and common question is “is there a easiest way to find out partition style ?”
Yes there is “Show Disk Partition Style” is a Portable Freeware to show our partition style with one click
How to use it:
Extract the ZIP file to the folder of your choice, then run DPStyle.exe , it will show your devices and Partitions styles
Supported operating systems: Windows 11 , Windows 10 , Windows 8.1 , Windows 8 , Windows 7 , Windows Vista , Windows Xp – (x86 & x64)
File: DPStyle_x64.exe – Virustotal
File: DPStyle.exe – Virustotal
add ssd\hdd type
GIANT THANK YOU! This is what was really missing! The problem of switching from hard drives to NVME is greatly underestimated, because when you reinstall the system, you stumble upon the terrible fact that just reinstalling will not work due to the difference in file system types! and you will know it after when the system disk is formatted, it’s terrible ….. and you won’t be able to find out the type of the file system at that moment.
(ГИГАНТСКОЕ СПАСИБО! Это то чего действительно не хватало! Проблема перехода с жестких дисков на NVME сильно недооценена , потому что при переустановке системы натыкаешься на тот ужасный факт что просто так переустановить не получится из за разности типов файловой системы! и узнаешь это уже после того когда системный диск отформатирован это ужасно….. а узнать тип файловой системы в этот момент уже не выйдет.)
There is a disk that cannot be selected for the format because the partition style is different (I can’t think of it right now). The computer does not boot because the style is different, I prepared Windows 7 Live for backup. I think formatting is needed but backing up files is needed.
My question is, will this program work with Windows 7 Live? And Style can change? Most importantly, is there no formatted solution to the style error? I would like to add that this is entirely Microsoft’s fault, how does Windows 10 not recognize the video card driver? As it was not enough, he stopped the driver! Windows that can’t load the video card is useless!
(Bir başka program için Türkçe yorum yaptım ve kabul edilmedi..)
1–) File Sistem (NTFS/FAT32/ExFAT vs..)
2–) Kluster Size (512B,4KB, 32KB, vs..)
Missing, please add them, it’s very important..
(Eksik kalmış lütfen bunları da ekleyin çok önemli..)
Super software, many thanks for this!!
Hİ Ray , we have noted it down , thank you
I would like to suggest adding these other hard to find values as well…
– File System (NTFS/FAT32 etc.)
– Cluster Size (4KB, 32KB, etc.)
– Product Revision (FW Version)
– Serial Number
I figured it out … You provided the Checksums for the individual UNzipped files. Not for the zipped files
I downloaded DPStyle.exe
and ran both checksums
My checksum program showed:
I then ran the other two checksums for DPStyle_x64.exe against my results. Nothing matched! I ran the download ed file on Virus total and it showed clean with a SHA-256 checksum of 40de4da4d8ce528e8dffced5391d0a526a8debbefd36dd335cbd5d752cb1e1f6 which matched. Is your checksum out of date
May be it is a good idea to make one tool from dchanger and this tool for drives?
We have noted it down and try to add this option , Thank you
How do I change the font size if I have too small?
Thanks for the Show Disk Partition Style.
Please add the list partition option (Diskpart_select disk_list partition).
I suggest adding formatting type (NTFS ect…) and partition size. Useful for fast info about connected usb sticks or usb hdd’s.
