Add Disk Bays to Batches

Disk Bays can be assigned to existing disk batches in order to apply same batch attributes for selected tasks (disk examination, erasure, etc).


Single disk bay can only belong to the one batch.

Once a new batch is created, a new message will appear at the top of the Disk Bays view of the Disk Explorer window, prompting you to add disks to the new batch.
