Using  Windows DispPart to show partiton information.

Use DiskPart to view GPF information on your disk. GPF info not visible on Windows Disk Management. Use DiskPart or a current partitioning utiliy to see partitins not displayed by Windows Disk Management or by Acronis TrueImage.

 

Displaying partition information contained within a backup. Sort 1

Display is default view. Needs adjustment to match original view.

 

Displaying partition information contained within a backup. Sort 2

Interim view of column headers during adjustment.

 

 

Displaying partition information contained within a backup. Sort 3

Start sectors needs sorted to numerical sequence. This is the partition arrangement of the disk at time of backup creation.

To determine whether your Windows Disk is partitioned as MBR or GPT types requires a little investigation on your part. You can use a special view (show-gpt-2.jpg below) of Windows DisK Management to see get a "yes or no" answer whether your disk is GPT, but for more information about GPT, you need to use the Windows Command line "DiskPart" program. If GPT, the Windows Disk Management does NOT show all GPT partitions and "DISKPART" (show-gpt-diskpart1.jpg below) is needed to see these missing partitions.

show-gpt-2.jpg User Custom View of Windows Disk Management
To see GPT disk indicaters from inside Windows Disk Management
Click the Menu item "View"
Click option "TOP"
Click option "DISK LIST"
Check the column listing "Partition Style" for a specific listing of GPT or MBR style partitioning.
If GPT, some partitions not displayed in Windows Disk Management but can be seen if Windows DISKPART is used from the command line.

If GPT not indicated, then your disk is MBR (Master Boot Record) and what you see in Windows Disk Management graphical view is normally a complete view.

Note in this example, Partition 1 (Microsoft Reserved) shown in DiskPart view is missing or not displayed in the Windows Disk Management View. You need the DiskPart view in order to see true partition alignment of your entire GPT disk.
