GetDevInfo 1.0.8 Released with better APFS support!

Just a quick post this time. GetDevInfo 1.0.8 has been released with a few new features and fixes. Most notably:

  • NVME disk detection unit tests now work on Ubuntu 16.04.
  • There are now nice descriptions for APFS volumes on macOS, including:
    • Physical Stores – the devices or partitions that provide the storage for the containers.
    • Containers – provide a chunk of storage in which to create volumes.
    • Volumes – Filesystems that store user and system data.
  • Note that the APFS descriptions are only available on recent versions of macOS that can provide information on APFS disks.
  • A convenience shortcut to running GetDevInfo from the command line.

Important: Python 2 is no longer supported. Please use GetDevInfo 1.0.6 if you need to use Python 2.

The new version can be downloaded from and

That’s it for this post, but stay tuned – there are a lot of interesting and different posts coming soon.
