Hi RITESHH. You may need to start including more information in your questions (and use web searches a bit more before asking them).

Would you like to introduce yourself on the LQ Member Intro thread (https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...mber-intro-24/) so that we can find out a bit more about you and thus be able to help you better?

RITESHH, I have to agree with hydrurga, you need to slow down and tell us exactly WHAT you are trying to do. You also NEED to be a LOT clearer in the questions your asking, as I for one, have NO IDEA what you are trying to achieve here!

Once again, you are NOT being clear in the question you are asking. If you would like to learn more about how hard drives work in general, then ardvark71 has already given you a good starting point (see his post above and click on the link, simple mate!).
