       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

       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.

       Written by David Zeuthen <> with a lot of help from
       many others.
