      eSATA (External Serial Advanced Technology Attachment)

      eSATA stands for External Serial Advanced Technology Attachment. It is meant to be an external interface for SATA technologies. SATA or Serial ATA (Advanced Technology Attachment) is the next generation of drive interfaces, its predecessor being the Parallel ATA (PATA). PATA Anyone who has opened up their computer must have noticed the flat, 40-wire parallel

      How to Connect SCSI to USB

      Computer wire connections have been redefined and reset with the emergence of the universal serial bus or USB. Nowadays, almost all modern computers are equipped with USB terminals. Consumers or new computer buyers should always make sure that the personal computer units they will be purchasing have USB terminals. That is because almost all wires

      How Does a USB Flash Drive Work?

      USB flash drives provide users with an enormous level of satisfaction and accessibility due to their massive storage capacities, low cost, and small size. USB flash drives serve an important role in our society and have a precedence over other means of data transportation. Where as computers used to have floppy disk drives as well

      Stability Problems Caused by File Fragmentation

      File and disk fragmentation usually causes problems in large networked companies where many people simultaneously save, retrieve and delete their work on a company’s servers. In an ideal scenario, people will be ‘lining up’ to use the company’s servers, allowing data management (especially storage and retrieval) to proceed in an orderly, logical, and sequential manner.

    • PATA (Parallel ATA)

      PATA (Parallel ATA)

      PATA is an abbreviation for Parallel Advanced Technology Attachment. It is a regular interface that is used within PCs to connect all kinds of storage devices like hard disks, CD or DVD drives and solid state disks to the motherboard. The PATA interface connector is made up of thirty four pins and is connected to

      MBR (Master Boot Record)

      The MBR is the Master Boot Record. The MBR is a small program which runs whenever a computer boots up. The MBR is stored in the first sector of the boot disk. The boot disk may be a hard drive, a floppy drive, or even a CD or DVD drive. The Task of the MBR

    • DASD (Direct Access Storage Disk)

      DASD (Direct Access Storage Disk)

      A DASD, or Direct Access Storage Disk, is a type of storage device that is connected directly to a user’s computer rather than being connected to the network. Because many types of storage device connect directly to a user’s computer, the term “DASD” may apply to a variety of different devices; however, a DASD is

    • SCSI (Small Computer System Interface)

      SCSI (Small Computer System Interface)

      SCSI (Small Computer System Interface) is a set of ANSI standards for connecting devices to computer systems. The vast majority of SCSI devices are data storage devices. Standard SCSI is a parallel technology, but many serial SCSI variants exist, including FireWire and Fibre Channel. SCSI is generally considered a higher-end alternative to IDE (Integrated Drive

    • ATAPI (ATA Packet Interface)

      ATAPI (ATA Packet Interface)

      ATAPI, Advanced Technology Attachment with Packet Interface is the standard interface (type of connection) used to connect hard drives, CD-ROM drives and other components like RAM, motherboard inside the CPUs of personal computers. It is the standard developed by Western Digital and maintained by the International Committee for Information Technology Standards (also known as the

    • Mirroring


      Mirroring is the automated process of writing data to two drives simultaneously. Mirroring is used to provide redundancy, backup, multiple concurrent accesses and uninterrupted accessibility. If one drive fails, the redundant drive will continue to store the data and provide access to it. The failed drive can then be replaced and the drive set can
