Implementing Microsoft Windows Server Disks and Volumes (edX)

Created by: Delivered by:

Learn how to implement Microsoft Windows Server disks and volumes and how to secure storage with BitLocker and Encrypted File System (EFS).

One of the key components when you plan and deploy Microsoft Windows Server is storage. Most organizations require lots of storage because users and applications are constantly working with and creating data.

As a Microsoft Windows Server System Administrator you must be able to:

- Identify and decide on the type of storage your organization needs

- Manage disks, volumes, and file systems

- Use BitLocker to secure volumes

- Encrypt data with Encrypted File System (EFS)

This interactive computer science course teaches through video, discussion, practical exercises and assessments. Each topic is job- focused and designed to ensure you can confidently perform the task.

This course can help you:

- Decide if a career in IT is for you

- Prepare for an introductory job in Windows Server administration

- Study for Microsoft certification tests and badges

- Improve your skills in handling disks and volumes, and securing Windows Server storage


- Learners should have some general understanding of server and storage concepts. This course will only review fundamental information where necessary to illustrate how Microsoft implements a Windows Server feature.

- It would be helpful to have completed INF201.12, Introduction to Windows Server. This ensures you have a strong foundation in Server Manager, server roles, and server features.

- Windows PowerShell will be the tool of choice when implementing the features in this course. Therefore, it would be helpful to have completed INF201x, Windows PowerShell Fundamentals. This ensures you have a strong foundation in accessing and using simple Windows PowerShell commands.
