Disk Drives Explained

bq. Magnetic disk drives are one of those things I usually take for granted without thinking about, but I recently realized how little I understood about how they really work. ACM Queue has an article from their ‘Storage’ issue titled, “‘You Don’t Know Jack About Disks'”:http://www.acmqueue.org/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=46, which does a very good job of explaining exactly how magnetic disks have evolved since the 70s and how they work today.

HowStuffWorks has a basic tutorial on “How Hard Disks Work”:http://computer.howstuffworks.com/hard-disk.htm.
