Short for run length limited
, an encoding scheme used to store data
on newer PC hard disks
. RLL produces fast data access times
and increases a disk's storage
capacity over the older encoding scheme called MFM (modified frequency modulation)
Technically, any disk drive can use MFM, RLL, or some other encoding scheme. The one used depends on the integrate disk controller within the disk drive.
