Property Details

The "Number" property

Number  readable   u

The number of the partition in the partition table.


The "Type" property

Type  readable   s

The type of the partition.

For dos partition tables, this string is a hexadecimal number e.g. 0x83 or 0xfd. For gpt partition tables this is the UUID e.g. ebd0a0a2-b9e5-4433-87c0-68b6b72699c7.


The "Flags" property

Flags  readable   t

Flags describing the partition.

Known flags for dos partitions include:

Bit 7

The partition is marked as bootable

Known flags for gpt partitions include:

Bit 0

System partition

Bit 2

Legacy BIOS Bootable

Bit 60

Read-only

Bit 62

Hidden

Bit 63

Do not automount


The "Offset" property

Offset  readable   t

Offset of partition, in bytes.


The "Size" property

Size  readable   t

Size of partition, in bytes.


The "Name" property

Name  readable   s

The "UUID" property

UUID  readable   s

The "Table" property

Table  readable   o

The object path of the org.freedesktop.UDisks2.PartitionTable object that the partition entry belongs to.


The "IsContainer" property

IsContainer  readable   b

Set to TRUE if the partition itself is a container for other partitions.

For example, for dos partition tables, this applies to socalled extended partition (partitions of type 0x05, 0x0f or 0x85) containing socalled logical partitions.
