VM, which stands for “Virtual Machine”, is a widely-installed operating system for compatible computers and Servers. It makes each operating system behaves as if it were installed on a self-contained computer with its own set of programs and hardware resources.
With the increasing of computer, VMware has been widely used in computer to help computer administrators. It provides a completely virtualized set of hardware to the guest operating system. What it does is to ensure the host system safety or normal, because all the operations in VMware will not be changed. To some extent, it is more like a tester.Read More
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
Computer has been widely used in people’s life, and it has become the necessary tool for us. Thus, to ensure the computer’s safety is so important. However, with day and day passing by, we will be faced with different kinds of troubles, especially for the disk problem.
Partition Assistant is an easy-to-use tool specialized in disk problems. It includes some basic and advanced features for disk, like resize, move, merge, extend, copy and so on. Meanwhile, most of these operations will be working without losing data and rebooting operating system.
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
Why do you need to format hard drive? What reason has driven you to format? Generally speaking, different user has different reason. Now, let’s see two apparent reasons together.
Repartition hard disk
You may feel your system becoming slower, and some applications can not install successfully. Apart from these problems, a series of problems knock on the door later.

However, we always try our best to search the best free modify partition software. Fortunately, the result has been found.Read More
As we all know, Fat 32 and NTFS are two main file systems widely used by computer users. Each one has advantages and disadvantages. Based on different users’ needs, they choose different file systems.
Reason to format partition to Fat 32
Fat32 is popular among users, although it had the limitation in capacity. Generally speaking, it had been used in several aspects: for home users, it is recommended to save media files; for game players, the external disk added on Xbox 360 or PS3 must be Fat 32; and for Server users, keeping data on it will provide steady performance.
When the partition capacity is larger than 32GB, Fat 32 is not supported. In this case, what should you do to keep this file system? Will you backup all the data to format it, and then to shrink the size to convert?Read More
What does the title mean? I don’t know the meaning yet. Until yesterday, I found my C drive was red. Generally speaking, C drive has been used as system drive. Compared with other partitions, it became red because the space was not enough. Since I’m a green hand in computer, I have no idea about it.
My friends told me the only way is to reinstall the operating system for repartitioning the hard disk. However, the reinstalled procedures will undertake the risk of data losing and cost a lot of time, which doesn’t seem a good idea to me. So, is there any way can help me?Read More
