The order by which data is written.

Sat May 25, 2019 5:26 am

When data is being saved to drive, is it done in a logical order ?

Is it spread across multiple platters or is it written to 1 platter at a time ?

For example; a new 1TB drive with 2 platters (4 sides @ 250GB per side) has several 100MB files written to it, are these files going to be spread throughout all 4 sides of the platters, or just contained all on the first platter ?

I'm just trying to get something straight in my head and have since confused myself into a corner :roll:
