"Hard disk real estate is divided into many small storage units called sectors (also called as blocks). Each sector is 512 bytes in size. Note that this is completely different from cluster size. Cluster size is a result of the FAT file system. Sectors are fixed at 512 bytes and can actually be considered as the minimum allocation unit. But because of the sheer number of allocation units that would need to be tracked, it's impossible to use the sector size as the cluster size. So, a cluster will usually consist of multiple sectors. However, that's a story for another time. :)"
