Hard disk, being an integral part of computer, is the main storage device of computer data. It features one or more rotating rigid platters on a motor-driven spindle within a protective enclosure. Data is encoded magnetically by read/write heads that float on a cushion of air above the platters. is the 512-byte boot sector that is the first sector of a partitioned data storage device such as a hard disk. Regrettably, the operating systems build-in disk management fails to perform as many disk management as what users have expected. Hence, we should turn to a third-party partition magic so as to properly manage hard disk partitions and improve computer and partition operating performance. Speaking of partition magic, I would like to recommend MiniTool Partition Wizard - an outstanding partition magic developed by MiniTool Solution Ltd. to cover various disk management functions.
