Hello all,

New here. I have a question about advance format 4k hardrives. I have been putting desktops together from various parts from the thrift store the past few years. All machines work okay, but I ran into this advanced format stuff when formatting a drive. Been looking into it and from what I gather, vista and up support it. I ran this at cmd prompt, and I see my drives seem to support the advanced format, but the bytes per sector says 512. Did I format these incorrectly, or is this correct that I see 512.

On this current machine I am on, Dell optiplex 755, I see this from cmd:
C:\Windows\system32>fsutil fsinfo ntfsinfo c:

The question is am I using this drive as advanced? All my other mahine's drives say 512 bytes per sector as well.
Any light you can shed will be helpful.

Thanks
