Disk Alignment Test Tool Lets Check AF Hard Disk For Right Alignment

If the underlying hard disk has some serious flow or fault, usual system clean ups like deleting temporary files, defragmenting the hard drive, etc will not always improve your computer’s performance. Moreover, the latest hard disk built with AF technology requires right alignment to get best performance.

There are several tools available for checking and fixing the health and read errors of hard drives and few of them had mentioned in my previous articles. Here I am presenting a tool for checking the alignment of AF hard disks.

All new high capacity hard disk will have 4K Advanced Format technology (AF) and the Disk Alignment Test tool will check your disks for alignment and give advice for optimization in case it needed.

Remember that it is not always needed to check your disk’s volume alignment. If you have upgraded your system from Windows XP to Vista or Windows 7 or partitioned with some outdated partition software, you may need to check it.

Note: Disk Alignment Test tool cannot correct the wrong alignment; instead, it directs you to the manufacturer’s web site (Western Digital, Hitachi, Toshiba and Samsung) for right tool.

Disk Alignment Test works on Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 (32bit/64bit) and can be downloaded from developer’s website here. (Via)
