Hard Disk Management
The hard disk is the secondary storage device that is used in the computer system. Usually the primary memory is used for the booting up of the computer. But a hard disk drive is necessary in the computer system since it needs to store the operating system that is used to store the information of the devices and the management of the user data.
The management of the IO devices that is the Input Output devices, like the printer and the other peripherals like the keyboard and the etc; all require the usage of the operating system. Hence the information of the all such devices and the management of the system is done by the operating system. The operating system works as an interpreter between the machine and the user.
The operating system is a must for the proper functioning of the computer. The computer is a device that needs to be fed with the instructions that are to be carried out and executed. Hence there needs to be an interpreter who is going to carry out the conversions from the high level language of the user to the low level language of the computer machine.
The hard disk drive as secondary memory is therefore needed for the purpose of installing the operating system. If there is no operating system then the question arises where to install the operating system. The operating system obviously cannot be installed in the primary memory however large that may be. The primary memory is also a volatile memory that cannot be used for the permanent storage of the system files of the operating system. The operating system requires the permanent file storage media like the hard disk.
More over the hard disk management is an important part of maintaining the computer, since it requires an efficient management of the data or the user information. The information regarding the Master Boot Record is stored in the hard disk drive. This is the information that is required during the start up of the computer. The computer system needs this information for loading the operating system.
The file management and the resources management is also a part of the hard disk management. The hard disk management requires an efficient knowledge of the operating system and its resources and the methods of how these resources can be employed in order to achieve maximum benefit. The operating system contains the resources and the tools that are used to manage the files in the operating system. The partitioning and the installation of the operating system itself may be considered as the hard disk management.
The hard disk management also involves the formatting of the hard disk drive and to check the integrity of the file system. The data redundancy check can also be carried out for the consistency of the hard disk drive. The hard disk drive management is also important in the case of the network where there are many hard disk drives to be managed.
Managing a single hard disk in a single user operating system is quite easy in comparison with the management of the hard disk drives in a multi user operating system where there is more than one user. It is not that much easy since the users are also required to be managed.
