    Rawdisk is the access of a hard disk at raw, binary level i.e., beneath the file system level.

    In detail for platform virtualization, the virtualization software : the ability to access a hard disk at the raw level. Virtualization software functions by the usage of a virtual drive format like Open Vvirtualisation Format (to run in virtual machines such as secure, portable, efficient) , to run virtualisation on an operating system that has been installed. The virtualization software allows raw disk access to that disk or disk partition, and then allow that entire operating system to boot within the virtualization window.
    vmware does this
