hard sectoring
In magnetic or optical disk storage, sectoring that uses a physical mark on the disk, from which mark sector locations are referenced. Note: Hard sectoring may be done, for example, by punching an index hole in a floppy diskette. When the presence of the index hole is recognized by an optical reader, a reference signal is generated. All sector locations can be referenced from this signal.
