Disk Utility uses the partitioning information you supply to create volumes your Mac can access and use. When the partitioning process is complete, your new volumes should be mounted on the desktop, ready to use.

Before you close Disk Utility, you may want to take a moment to add it to the Dock, to make it easier to access the next time you want to use it.

Keep Disk Utility in the Dock

  1. Right-click the Disk Utility icon in the Dock. It looks like a hard drive with a stethoscope on top.

  2. Select ‘Keep in Dock’ from the pop-up menu.

When you quit Disk Utility, its icon will remain in the Dock, for easy access in the future.
