  3. 3. Partition AlignmentParagon Alignment Tool (PAT) is a powerful and flexible utility which automatically detectsand corrects misaligned partitions in 4K drives in physical and virtual environments foroptimum performance and longevity.Windows Server 2003 (as well as Windows XP and earlier versions of Windows operatingsystems – which are all designed for 512 byte sectors) may misalign 4K, advanced formatdrives (AFDs) with an offset 1 sector, causing redundant read/write operations thatsignificantly degrade I/O performance and drive longevity. See white paper.Paragon Alignment Tool solves these problems by determining if a drive is misaligned andthen realigning all partitions (including the boot partition) to the correct sectorboundaries, without affecting the operating system or data. See data sheet. Due to its unique, in-place alignment method and its advanced HotPAT technology, Paragon PAT aligns data partitions of all sizes online and with zero downtime, and without requiring any additional storage space (swap space).
