PMR, also known as conventional magnetic recording (CMR), works by aligning the poles of the magnetic elements, which represent bits of data, perpendicularly to the surface of the disk. Magnetic tracks are written side-by-side, without overlapping. SMR offers larger drive capacity than the traditional PMR because SMR technology achieves greater areal density.
