Basic disk concept

A basic disk contains primary partitions and extended partitions containing logical drivers that are used by Windows 2000 and Windows NT operating systems. Basic disks may also include volumes created by using Windows NT 4.0 or early versions, striped volumes, mirrored volumes, or RAID-5 volumes (also called striped volume with a parity check). As long as the file formats are compatible, basic disks can be accessed by Microsoft MS-DOS, Microsoft Windows 95, Microsoft Windows 98, or Windows NT operating system.
