gnome-disks - the GNOME Disks application
gnome-disks is the command to launch the GNOME Disks application. Disks provides a way to inspect, format, partition and configure disks
and block devices.
The Disks application is single-instance. What this means is that if the application is not already running when the gnome-disks command is
invoked, it will get launched and the command invocation will block until the application exits. Otherwise the existing application
instance will be used and the gnome-disks command will exit immediately.
The following options are understood:
Switches to the Disks application and selects the block device given by DEVICE (for example, /dev/sda).
--block-device DEVICE --format-device [--xid WINDOW-ID]
Shows the "Format Volume" dialog for the block device given by DEVICE (for example, /dev/sdb1). If WINDOW-ID is given, makes the dialog
transient to the given XID.
Prints a short help text and exits.
