I've just been reading a couple of old articles by Martin Walker on partitioning hard
drives, as for reasons of computer performance I'm interested in the big variation in
sustained transfer rates you get between the outside tracks of the drive and the inside.
Nevertheless, if I create, say, three partitions on a drive it's not clear exactly how I
define which partition is actually on the outside of the disk and will therefore have the
fastest access time. Can anyone help? (By the way, in case it's of any relevance, I'm
using Mac OSX Leopard.)
