    Why are you trying to clone to an external drive?

    as a backup measure.
    It cloned to the 2TB disk by the same vendor, really identical except for the size, 4tb vs 2tb.

    I see. That's fine, I can repurpose this device to something else.

    Why not back up with an image instead of a clone? There shouldn't be an issue for an image to be stored on the external, regardless of sector size.
