Go to sector

You can go to the necessary sector according to its absolute offset by selecting the Go to… line in the Search menu (or by pressing the Alt+P key combination). Selecting this line opens the Go to… dialog window.

The transition is performed by entering the absolute sector offset, or cylinder, head, and sector numbers. The listed parameters are bound by this expression:

(CYL x HDS + HD) x SPT + SEC – 1

Where CYL, HD, SEC are numbers of the cylinder, head, sector in the CHS co-ordinates (Cylinder – Head – Sector); HDS is the number of heads per disk, SPT is the number of sectors per track.

You can return to a sector from another one by selecting the Back item in the Search menu (or by pressing the Ctrl+Backspace key combination).
