Very nice - and I just found it two days after creating a post template.

One Two suggestions
- ask folks to close the left and right panes so more information is presented

Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image-diskmgmnt.png

- ask folks to drag the horizontal pane bar up or down to present as much info as possible - lots of people have many drives.
--> if it won't all fit on one screen shot - two will have to do - one of the top pane and one of the bottom pane

Hi Colin, just saw this tut for the first time (kind of late - I am slow, LOL). It is great and now I don't have to make the whole story with my own postings. I bookmarked it. Thanks a lot, unfortunately it is too late to send reps your way.

Try this as an alternative screen - it shows the disks (top) and the volumes (bottom)
Save to your desktop

Open the compressed folder and Extract all
Accept the defaults on the Extract dialog
a new Explorer window will open showing the unpacked files

You can move the DMdiskman folder to your start menu later if you wish

When you launch DMdiskman, you'll see:
Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image-dmdiskman.png
The only thing you might have to adjust is the spacing betweent the top and bottom panes (many disks, many volumes). You want to show everything that can be shown (all disks, all volumes)

The nice thing about this is that it shows how the disk is initialized (MBR / GPR) - thanks Edwin!
and everything should be set for the user to post the screen shot (L & R panes closed, columns expanded...)

Maybe a method 2 Colin?
