WD Advanced Format

Western Digital is still a big job ahead of him when it comes to advertising and forcing their Advanced Format hard drives. Briefly speaking, it is a technology that changes the size of the hard drive with 512 byte sectors (which is standard for the past thirty years) at 4096K, which allows ECC data to be stored on a more efficient way. When the 512 byte sector is used, the Sync / DAM and ECC information is stored by pre-defined template. For now, no more information available on the Advanced Format a Western Digital believes that technology will prove very useful in the future.
