Is there a way to change the bytes per sector? When I Googled about my
problem, I saw talk about 512 bps. When I look, I get:
Volume name = < >
ascii name = <ST3000DM-001-9YN166- -746.52GB>
bytes/sector = 512
sectors = 1565565871
accessible sectors = 1565565838
Part Tag Flag First Sector Size Last Sector
0 usr wm 256 746.51GB 1565549454
1 unassigned wm 0 0 0
2 unassigned wm 0 0 0
3 unassigned wm 0 0 0
4 unassigned wm 0 0 0
5 unassigned wm 0 0 0
6 unassigned wm 0 0 0
7 unassigned wm 0 0 0
8 reserved wm 1565549455 8.00MB 1565565838
If I changed this to 2KB/sector, it would give me 2986.04GB. How would I
even do this?
