NAME

gnome-disks − the GNOME Disks application

SYNOPSIS

gnome−disks [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION

gnome−disks is the command to launch the GNOME Disks application. Disks provides a way to inspect, format, partition and configure disks and block devices.

The Disks application is single−instance. What this means is that if the application is not already running when the gnome−disks command is invoked, it will get launched and the command invocation will block until the application exits. Otherwise the existing application instance will be used and the gnome−disks command will exit immediately.

OPTIONS

The following options are understood:

−−block−device DEVICE

Switches to the Disks application and selects the block device given by DEVICE (for example, /dev/sda).

−−block−device DEVICE −−format−device [−−xid WINDOW−ID]

Shows the “Format Volume” dialog for the block device given by DEVICE (for example, /dev/sdb1). If WINDOW−ID is given, makes the dialog transient to the given XID.

−−restore−disk−image FILE

Shows the “Restore Disk Image” dialog for the file given by FILE (for example, /home/user/Downloads/SuperOS.iso) and prompts the user to choose a disk to restore the image unto.

−h, −−help

Prints a short help text and exits.
