What is AAM exactly in HDtune ? Tags: Hard Drives Storage Last response: April 22, 2010 5:46 PM in Storage Share chicagopiano April 22, 2010 5:44:15 PM I would be glad if somebody explained to me what AAM is in HDtune? Well, I mean, what exactly does it do to make the HDD quieter? Is there anything else that I have to sacrifice except access times? Thanks in advance!
