Dynamic Disks: LDM, LVM and WSS

Dynamic Disks - virtual disks being used by:
  • Logical Disk Manager (LDM on Windows)
  • Logical Volume Manager (LVM on Linux)
  • Windows Storage Spaces (WSS on Windows)
Dynamic Disks are virtual operating system devices handling other physical disks and emulating different types of RAID not on a hardware level, but on an operating system level. These virtual devices are fully supported with KillDisk. These disks will appear in the disk View as any other disks would along with their component disks. When you launch an erase operation on the virtual disk you see it reflected on the components disks as well.
