Easy one - web info about disk partitoning and formatting
Posted on 2004-09-03
This is a easy one: Someone new just started in my tech department, and I want to give him some reading material about disks, disk partitioning, disk formatting, ...
As he can't seem to get what a partition is, why he has to 'mount' after creating, he mixes up 'mount' and 'format' (awww... another disk gone lol), ...
So, can someone provide me with some links to a clear "beginner's guide to hard disk usage"?
It has to cover:
- basic disk info (connectors, power, ...)
- basic Partition info (what is a partition, why drive letter needed)
- basic Formatting info (what is a file system, why do I need it, ...)
If possible, with a visual representation.
This guy never did disk maintenance operations, he is mainly a music technician... :s
