We earlier reported about Microsoft working on a modern Disk management tool for Windows 10. Now, this tool has appeared in an unfinished state in the Dev channel Build 20175.
The tweet posted by Microsoft enthusiast Gustave has screenshots of the UWP disk management tool. The tool can be found by following the path Settings–>Storage–>Manage Disks and volumes.

The tool’s UI is bare-bones and utility wise it can’t do much in its current state. It is obviously work-in-progress but good news is that Microsoft is working to bring modern UWP version of a much needed tool.
Currently Windows 10 features a basic Disk management or diskpart tool that is considered to be not good enough by many. However it is the most handy tool when one needs to delete/create partitions or expand space on a disk.
Therefore the overall experience of disk partitioning or expanding space using the currently inbuilt Windows 10 Diskpart tool leaves much to be desired.
