    In the editor - select the text you want to hide and press the ? button - far right above the editor window.

    OK - what is your reference for this one? :biggrin

    In my book on a hard drive the basic unit is a a sector. On a *partition* it is a cluster. Not quite the same! <grin>

    I got this from Michael Meyers... (well actually from my notes from his book)...

    but a partition is from a hard drive, so why the diff?

    Without refering to MM:
    A partition is a *logical* superposition on a hard drive, and has its own contraints from the OS it belongs to. So it is not the same thing as the *physical* layout of the drive.

    EDIT - see page 353 of MM

    Harry (off to check with MM now)

    I thought the answer for that was Sector so quite suprised when it was wrong.

    A partition is an arbitrary divide in the way an OS views the disk, it has no physical basis.

    Read page 433 and following.

    MM says that the *base* layout is in sectors, but that the OS imposes clusters on top when the partition is created.

    The usual terms for this are:- Physical - the real layout, and Logical - what the OS does with these physical pieces.
