Clear Reserved Sectors

For PartitionGuru, reserved sectors refer to sectors from the second sector (behind MBR sector) to the sector that is in front of the beginning sector of the first partition. In most cases, a track has 63 sectors and the first partition usually begins at the 63rd sector (it numbers from 0), so, excluding MBR sector, there are 62 sectors to be cleared.

As to the case that sectors are not 63 or the first partition doesn't begins from the 63rd sector, PartitionGuru automatically calculates sector number to be cleared so that it won't clear other sectors except reserved sectors.

To carry out this function, please select a disk you want to clear reserved sectors, then click "Disk" - "Clear Reserved Sectors" and PartitionGuru will pop up the following message:

Clear Reserved Sectors

Press "OK" to execute the operation.

This function doesn't apply to GPT disk with GUID partition table.
