Checking Your Drive’s Partition(s) On An Android Powered Kodi TV Box

Play Store AParted Installed

This article is for owners of a DroiX T8-S, T8-S Plus (v1 and v2) who have installed a hard drive.
Although you can remove the hard drive from your DroiX internal bay and attach it to a PC to check the partition(s), you can also leave it in place and use an Android application instead.

Warning: Do not click on options related to formatting, mounting, clearing or erasing unless you have a good reason to do so. You can lose access to your data if you click the wrong options.

If you want to know more about the drive inside your T8-S, T8-S Plus v1 or DroiX® T8-S Plus v2 device, then AParted https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sylkat.AParted is worth installing. With it you can check how many partitions are on your hard drive, and what type they are.


  1. Open the Play Store app on your DroiX device. If you’ve not signed in and used it before, you might want to click over to https://droix.co.uk/first-run-of-googles-play-store first.
    Play Store Opened
  2. In the search bar at the top, enter these words:
    Play Store Enter Search
  3. We want the app by sylkat. Don’t worry about the reference to SD cards, it also works on hard drives.
    Select And Click Install
  4. Once clicked on, select the Install button
    Play Store AParted Page
  5. Make sure you are happy accepting the permissions it requests (Android 5 users, Android 6 users will be asked when the app is opened)

Alternative application

Another possibility is to use Parted4Android (SD Partition), see https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.giis.parted4Android for details. The interface is a little more modern looking and easier to use, however there was less information (specifically identifying as EXT rather than EXT4) when compared to the AParted.
