Hi,it is very useful that the drive name+serial is printed on --ask if known. But unfortunately the size is no longer printed then.
An additional size info would be in particular useful when a partition is addressed (e.g. /dev/sda3) instead of the whole drive. At least on Linux and Windows, HDIO_GET_IDENTITY or similar report name and serial of the underlying physical drive in this case.
This could for example be used to verify that sizes are equal if a partition is copied to another disk.
