useful linux commands to manage disk drives & partitions

This post is simply a collection of commands I use over the years when it comes to managing disk drives & partitions on Linux operation systems. This post only lists the commands themselves without discussing their arguments or detailed usages.

  • cfdisk
  • lsblk
  • blkid
  • parted
  • fdisk
  • mkfs

These commands are usually more than enough for us to manage disk drives & partitions on a typical Linux based server OS. We can always run the commands with the --help argument to learn more about their usages.

As I’m not formatting my disk drives every week (god forbid I really should not be doing so), I might forget the commands every now and then. So, posting them here for my future back reference.
