Definition Edit

A logical volume is

a partition or a collection of partitions acting as a single entity that has been formatted with a filesystem. Some media types, such as floppy disks, can contain at most one partition (and consequently, one logical volume). The format of the logical volumes is determined by the selected filesystem.[1]
