SATA is familiar to many computer users. What are the advantages of SATA as a type of admired hard disk interface? Firstly, it has a higher starting point and a more promising future. The defined data transmission rate of Serial ATA 1.0 is 150MB/S, higher than the latest parallel ATA (ATA/133) which only has a 133MB/S transmission speed. And that of Serial ATA 2.0 will reach 300MB/S; and it will realize 600MB/S finally. Secondly, Serial ATA transfers data in the way of consecutive serials, transferring 1bit data once. This will reduce pins and cable jumpers and improve transmission rate. Actually, Serial ATA can finish all tasks with only four pins which are respectively used to connect cables, link ground wire, send data and receive data. This kind of framework is also able to reduce system energy consumption and system complicacy. Besides, SATA has stronger error correcting ability and supports hot swapping.
Since we have understood SATA interface, SATA hard disk is easy to understand. The hard disk which adopts SATA interfaces is called SATA hard disk. Due to the advantages of SATA interfaces, SATA hard disks are widely used. And SATA hard disk partition management is necessary if users want to feel its convenience. Fine partition management is able to improve disk use ratio, computer operating speed and beneficial to data storage. And we have to apply partition magic to realize fine partition management because Windows built-in disk management tool can only realize some basic partition management operations, for example, creating partition, deleting partition and formatting partition.
Speaking of partition magic, many users may feel lost because they don't know which should be used. Here, we recommend MiniTool Partition Wizard. It has been admitted by many users. Then we'll introduce its operations.
Please visit the official website https://www.partitionwizard.com/ to download MiniTool Partition Wizard. Then launch it and select the SATA hard disk partition to be managed. We'll see the following interface.
Many partition management functions are shown under "Operations" column. Take extending partition for example. Click "Extend Partition" and the following interface will be shown.
Select any partition where the free space will be taken and then drag the button below to resize partition. Then click "OK" to go back to the main interface.
Lastly, click "Apply" button to perform the operation. Then extending partition will be finished.
Users can also perform other SATA hard disk partition management operations by following software prompts. The operations are also very simple.
