English term or phrase: short stroke drive
El contexto es el siguiente:
"With this application you can create dump files that contain support and log data, format drives, short stroke drives, copy one drive to another, perform read and write/read qualification testing, generate defect data lists, and convert between logical and physical addressing schemes"

No me queda claro si está usaso como verbo o si se trata de un adjetivo. En todo caso "carrera corta" no me cierra en este contexto.

Gracias.

formateo parcial
Explanation:
Lo primero es ver que sí debe haber un verbo en la frase "short stroke drives", ya que tenemos "create", "copy", "format", "perform", "generate" y "covert"...
Según http://www.amigau.com/natamiga/t-flyerhdnotes.shtml :
"The way to make such a drive reliable for A/B roll playback is to short-stroke the drive. This means that you format only the portion of the drive that can handle the data rate you want."
El problema es que no he encontrado ninguna referencia que utilice este concepto en español, por lo que "formateo parcial" es cosecha propia... pero por lo menos tienes una pista de por dónde van los tiros.
Suerte!
