    It seems that this option is gone - WHM11.32.2
    Why ? Is there a replacement script somewhere ?

    In the latest documentation shows as it is (should be) available:
    Disk Drives

    I have the default WHM theme, btw.

    seems it is I would guess that its because it was terribly broken depending on what type of drive you had with centos 6
    ext4 (but cpanel would have to confirm this)


    fdisk

    how you should do it anyway (manually)

    Howdy,

    This was removed as of 11.31.2.9 (source CPanelVersion1132 < AllDocumentation/ChangeLog < TWiki) Line:

    Fixed case 54191: Remove WHM's "Format/Mount a New Hard Drive" from the interface

    It does not function with some of the Centos6 kernels and is very dangerous for new users. Using fdisk is the way to go. You can read up on it here Gentoo Linux Documentation -- Preparing the Disks (that's where I learned). It's a really nice tool just be very careful to start it on the right drive.

    Thanks!

    Is this feature coming back, then? I just found this: Disk Drives

    It states that it's for cPanel 11.34 and since I'm running 11.32, I do not have access to it yet.

    I will need to add a new drive in the future and wondered if it's easily done via WHM.

    The documentation is incorrect and appears that 11.34 didn't properly get updated to remove that option. I've opened case 61704 in regards to removing that section of the documentation from 11.34 manual.
