Hi guys

I would like to know whether there is any geometry available to calculate the actual size of a hdd from the number of cylinders (Actually the hdd I got in my possession doesn't state the size on the label)

Thanks in advance

ok, the model number will tell us.

list the 3 or 4 lines of top text on the label, and one of us, (if not me) will look it up for you.

CSH geometry(?)

I found the size from Internet. I am more curious about calculating the size of a HDD based on other parameters available like number of cylinders etc. I was told by one of my buddies about a "CSH geometry" (I hope I am not quoting it wrong)

Thanks & regards

chs geometry is Cylinder/Head/Sector addressing

manufactures have webpages for their produts and usually there are links to data sheets and specification sheets.

most hard drive manufaturers also have utility programs that can be used to test their products and provide details about it.
