this filing cabinet will represent the hard disk and the drawers in it are known as as "clusters" on the hard disk
What's a 'cluster' I hear, if you like its the size of a draw in other words how much can be stored in it.
The "cluster" size can be from 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32kb in size.
If a filing cabinet has 4 draws and each drawer stores 4kb, this gives our filing cabinet the ability of storing a total of 4 * 4kb = 16kb
Lets have a example,
We have just written a letter in "Wordpad" and we save the file and the file length is 13kb (red) how many draws do you think we use, the answer 4, as 4 drawers each with a 4kb size can accomadate 16kb
