       gnome-disks - the GNOME Disks application


       gnome-disks [OPTIONS]


       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:

       --block-device DEVICE
           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.

       --restore-disk-image FILE
           Shows the “Restore Disk Image” dialog for the file given by FILE (for example,
           /home/user/Downloads/SuperOS.iso) and prompts the user to choose a disk to restore the
           image unto.

           Prints a short help text and exits.
