SYNOPSIS

Resets the status of a physical disk.

SYNTAX

ByName (Default)

Reset-PhysicalDisk [-FriendlyName] <String> [-CimSession <CimSession>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob]
 [<CommonParameters>]

ByUniqueId

Reset-PhysicalDisk -UniqueId <String> [-CimSession <CimSession>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob]
 [<CommonParameters>]

ByInputObject

Reset-PhysicalDisk -InputObject <CimInstance[]> [-CimSession <CimSession>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob]
 [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Reset-PhysicalDisk cmdlet resets the status of a physical disk. For Storage spaces, this is a destructive operation that removes the Storage pool configuration and pool data from the specified physical disk.

If you run Reset-PhysicalDisk on a physical disk that appears as lost communication or split, this cmdlet attempts to re-integrate the disk into the Storage pool if the disk is discoverable. After you reset a physical disk, use Repair-VirtualDisk to restore its resiliency.

If you run Reset-PhysicalDisk on a disk that is not a part of a Storage pool, the operation clears any lingering Storage spaces data and metadata.

EXAMPLES

EXAMPLE 1

PS C:\> Reset-PhysicalDisk -FriendlyName "PhysicalDisk5"

This example resets the state of a specific physical disk.

EXAMPLE 2

PS C:\> $phydisk = (Get-Physicaldisk | Where-Object -FilterScript {$_.HealthStatus -Eq "Unhealthy"}
PS C:\> Reset-PhysicalDisk -FriendlyName $phydisk.FriendlyName

This example resets all of the unhealthy physical disks.
