A [n] Get or set the variety of sectors to learn forward within the disk. The default is eight sectors (4 KB); a bigger worth is extra effective for giant, sequential reads, and a smaller price is best for small, random reads. Many IDE drives contain this performance within the force itself, so this selection isn't really continually worthy. -A let or disable the IDE read-ahead function. often on through default. -b [n] Get or set the bus nation for the force. -B Set the complicated energy administration (APM) info if the force helps it. -c [n] Get or set 32-bit I/O values for IDE drives. applicable values are zero (32-bit aid off), 1 (32-bit aid on), and three (on, yet in simple terms with a sync sequence). -C money the ability prestige of the force. this may inform you unknown, active/idle, standby, or sound asleep. Use -S, -y, -Y, and -Z to set the ability prestige. -d [n] Get or set the using_dma flag for the force, that could be zero (not utilizing DMA) or 1 (using DMA). -D allow or disable defect-handling gains which are managed through the hard disk drive itself. -E n Set CD-ROM learn velocity to n instances general audio playback pace. no longer ordinarily valuable. -f Flush and sync the buffer cache on go out. -F Flush write cache buffer on-drive. -g question and reveal force dimension and geometry details, reminiscent of variety of cylinders, heads, and sectors. -h exhibit a quick aid message. -i show the force identity info bought at boot time. If the force has replaced when you consider that boot, this knowledge will not be present. -I exhibit extra distinctive id info for the force. --Istdin learn establish information from commonplace enter. --Istdout Write establish facts to straightforward output. -k [n] Get or set the keep_settings_over_reset variable. legitimate settings are zero and 1, and a cost of one will hold the -dmu suggestions whilst rebooting (soft reset only). -K [n] Get or set the keep_features_over_reset variable. legitimate settings are zero and 1, and a price of one will continue settings for the flags -APSWXZ over a smooth reset. -L n Set the door lock flag for the force. Used for Syquest, ZIP, and JAZ drives. -m [n] Get or set the variety of sectors used for a number of region count number studying. a cost of zero disables the characteristic, and values of two, four, eight, sixteen, and 32 are universal. Drives that attempt to aid this option and fail might undergo corruption and information loss. -M [n] Get or set the extent for computerized Acousting administration (AAM) positive aspects. more recent drives help this selection, which could decelerate head routine to minimize hard drive noise. Values diversity from 128 (quiet, yet sluggish) to 254 (fast, yet loud). a few drives aid merely 128 and 254, whereas others help a number of degrees among the extremes. on the time of writing, this option was once nonetheless thought of experimental and never advised for construction use. -n [n] Set to zero or 1 to disable or let, respectively, the "ignore write error" flag. this may reason big facts loss if used incorrectly, and is for improvement reasons simply. -N [n] Get or set obvious variety of sectors. with no parameter this may demonstrate the present greatest sectors and the restrict for the disk.
