Partition alignment refers to the physical sector offset of partitions. This is done to make more efficient use of the physical space on hard drives, and it can optimize the performance of inputting and outputting data. Microsoft engineers have explained again-&-again that disk alignment can improves performance by not merely the nominal 10 – 15% in RAID systems, but commonly 20%, 30%, or more. Thus, it is able to provide a significant increase in system performance.Read More
As we all know, GPT and MBR are two types of disk in computer. They both have advantages and disadvantages.
GPT has several advantages. It can break the limitation of 2TB partition size, and allow the hard disk to create the primary partition up to 128. However, it cannot reboot the operating system. What a pity it is! Meanwhile, it cannot support Windows XP, Server 2000 and Server 2003(32bit).
As for MBR disk, it is the standard partitioning scheme that’s been used on hard disks since the PC first came out. It supports 4 primary partitions per hard drive, and a maximum partition size of 2TB.Read More
SSD is short for “solid-state drive” or “solid-state disk”. It is a data storage device for integrated circuit assemblies as memory to keep data persistently. Compared with normal hard drive, it use flash memory chips to store data, instead of the rotating magnetic platters, and it isn’t affected by magnets and won’t suffer mechanical failure. Meanwhile, based on its technology, it makes uses of electronic interface, which is compatible with traditional block input/output hard disk drives. As for the data security, SSD is constructed from random-access memory (RAM), which will ensure the data’s safety after power loss.Read More
