  • If I attach a new disk and I do not allocate any file system like raw,fat21,ntfs etc. So it remains in unallocated space still in that case your answer is valid?

    you can see in screen shot disk1 and disk2 are unallocated.

  • Yes the raw file system is present on any disk for the unformatted areas.
