An explanation of terms used in file recovery and disk usage
LBA stands for Logical Block Addressing. This is simply a way to identify each sector on a disk: the first sector on a disk (the MBR) is numbered 0 and all following sectors are numbered sequentially. So a LBA address is nothing more than a sector number. Keep in mind that the count starts at 0; LBA sector 10 is the 11th sector on the disk.
