I don't use a spreadsheet. I use the logs automatically created by the non-FOSS
partitioner I use, DFSee. Various examples of its logs are here:

	http://fm.no-ip.com/Tmp/Dfsee/

http://fm.no-ip.com/Tmp/Dfsee/gb250L04.txt is from GPT partitioning for UEFI.

The gb250 is the hostname. The L04 is serialization of the report's creation. It's
content is reduced to that which I find useful data for tracking what's where among
my 100+ disks.

Sometimes I append output from lsblk or parted -l.

hdparm and smartctl might also provide some of what you're looking for.
