I got a little confused. How the hard drive writes data? Starting from the inner sector and going to the outer or the other way around? So, if I'm formating a disk and I'll make partitions, the first partition that I'll create will be faster than the last or the other way around?

starts at the outer edges of each platter in turn, gradually moving inwards. The first partition is fastest.

*just to show the performance gains of a similar drive @ full benchmark vs. short stroke (technically) the same RPM's/speeds (granted its 90mb/secish) access times diffeer between drives though :|

Don't have any graphs to show you, but yes, partitioning works effectively on traditional HDDs.

This is a non RAID array setup, by the way...
