Sectorsize mismatch

Post by mechanda » Tue Oct 16, 2012 12:36 pm


I am getting "sectorsize1 != sectorsize2" error while trying to restore an image. The existing image has sector size 512k while the HDD which i would like to put this image on is 4096. Is there a way around this?

No, R-Drive Image cannot restore images to disks with different sector sizes.
You see, this is not a trivial task, you have to adjust the entire MFT and other service data to the new sector size.
