Description: Performs administrative service for disk management requests. This service is started only when configuring a drive or partition or when a new drive is detected. This service is configured as manual by default, and is activated whenever dynamic disk configuration changes occur or when the Disk Management MMC snap-in is open. Such changes include converting a basic disk to dynamic, recovery of fault tolerant volumes, volume formatting, or changing a page file. The service starts, completes the configuration operation, and then exits.
This service only runs for disk configuration processes once invoked via the MMC Disk Management snap-in and then stops. If this service is disabled, attempts to use the MMC Disk Management snap-in to configure disks will display the unable to connect to Logical Disk Manager service error message.
