Data Blocks

Hi Friends,


I get the basic understanding of what a block data is, in the sense the blocks are the amount of data stored physically in a hard disk. Is my understanding correct? (I am referring to the context of SAN storage technology). How does it write the block into the disk? Whats the relation with file system and block?
