Creation

To add a new drive, click “New…” on the sidebar under “Drives”.

Importing

When importing an image, if the drive is not removable, then the image will be copied to the .utm package. Only raw images are supported. If the drive is removable, then no data is copied.

Deletion

To delete a drive, right/secondary click the drive on the left toolbar and select “Delete”.

When you delete a non-removable drive, the data will be deleted as well. If the drive is removable, no data is deleted.

Boot Order

The boot order of devices are in the order they appear on the list.

To change the drive order, either right/secondary click the drive on the left toolbar and select “Move Up”/”Move Down” or drag and drop the drive in the desired order.

Removable Drive

Non-removable drives are stored in the .utm package. Removable drives only store a bookmark to the drive image and should be used for ISOs and other disk images.

Size

When creating a new image, this is the size of the new image. You can toggle between “MB” (mebibyte) or “GB” (gibibyte).

A raw empty image will be created inside the .utm package. If the host file system containing the .utm is APFS, then a sparse file will be created (zeros will not take space).
