Any Procmon users around please? I use it very rarely, but was puzzled today while doing some trouble-shoooting. As shown here, it appears to refer to my OS drive C: as HarddiskVolume1, whereas Windows XP calls it Disk0.

Which of these, if either, is the 'correct standard' please?

Edit: (2nd attempt - is the site broken?)
That link oddly doesn't open from here. It's OK everywhre else. Saw something about a screen capture option previously, but that doesn't seem accessible when editing? Here's the link as plain text FWIW:

So, that works. Conclusion: don't use the link icon, just paste the link!

✔ Best Answer
Disk0, etc, are physical disks; HardiskVolume1, etc. are partitions - so there may be more than one of these per disk. There is no obvious correspondence between the two but you can do it using API calls. Or

Your C: drive is not Disk0, it is a partition on Disk0.
