The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all inherited properties.

Class SMS_TaskSequence_PartitionSettings
{
	Boolean AssignVolumeLetter;
	Boolean Bootable;
	String FileSystem;
	Boolean QuickFormat;
	UInt32 Size;
	String SizeUnits;
	String Type;
	String VolumeLetterVariable;
	String VolumeName;
};
