A sector is the basic physical unit of hard drive data storage. Each sector holds 512 bytes of data and some additional bytes used for internal drive control, drive management, error detection and correction, and sector identification. The contents of a sector are as follows: • ID information: This contains the sector number and location that identify the sector on the disk. It also contains status information about the sector. • Synchronization fields: This helps the drive controller guide the read process.

A partition can be one of two types: • Primary partition: This type of partition holds information regarding the operating system and system area, as well as other information required for booting. • Extended partition: This partition holds the data and files that are stored on the disk. Data can be hidden on a hard disk by creating hidden partitions on the disk drive. That is, partitions can be created from the unused space between the primary partition and the first logical partition. The space between the primary partition and the secondary partition is known as the interpartition gap.

The boot sector is the sector of a storage device that contains the code for bootstrapping a system. Bootstrapping is the process by which a small program actually initializes the operating system installed on a computer. Information about the files present on the disk, their location, and their size is contained in the master boot record file. In DOS and Windows systems, a user can create the MBR with the fdisk/mbr command. The MBR is used to: • Bootstrap operating systems • Hold disk partition tables Many products replace the MBR file that is provided by Microsoft operating systems.
