How to determine number of blocks for a partition
Can someone explain how to determine the number of blocks to determine the number of cylinders for a new partition on hard drive.
Why is block size divided by 1024?
I think I understand unit size is the total bytes per cylinder, I get that. I understand the anatomy of the hard drive (i.e. heads, sectors, cylinders.
My problem is, if I need to calculate the number of cylinders needed for let's say a 20G partition on a 120G drive.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
