Clusters

In DOS (Disk Operation System), the sectors are grouped for allotment to files and are called clusters. A cluster is the minimum space allocated by DOS when space is given to a file.

It means that a cluster is a minimum area occupied by any file, though it may contain data that may be less than the cluster size. The cluster size varies with the Operating System type and varies from 1 to 128 sectors. The cluster area starts in the data area of the drive, which is after the File Allocation Table (FAT) and directory.
