Block Count

The total amount of blocks on the selected partition or volume.

OS Device Name

This field will be populated for configured devices, and is the path and name of the device in the OS before it was configured as a CXBF device. For Windows, all detected devices are set as configured so this field is not displayed.

Physical Disk Number

Specifies the Physical Disk Number,  which is useful for identifying the disk that is used for dynamic drive sharing. This value (e.g., \\?\PhysicalDrive0) is assigned by the Windows operating system. This field applies only to the Windows platform.
