Hi all, Does anyone know of a partition management utility that allows precise positioning of partitions, right down to a specific sector...? Independently of what it thinks are "cylinder boundaries"...? I ask in light of this Microsoft white paper: "Disk Partition Alignment Best Practices for SQL Server" http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd758814.aspx This document essentially states that the idea of positioning partitions at cylinder boundaries has been useless since hard disk sizes pass
