My Computer View

My Computer View presents the Disk Bay Layout in a standard list form, much like the disks in Windows Explorer. Disk Bays are grouped by row and can be colored according to their batch color. Information such as disk status, serial number, partitioning are shown in list form next to their respective Disk Bays. Properties window at the right side displays attributes of the currently selected object.
