Windows 7: Sector size different than Image

Sector size different than Image

Used Macrium Reflect to create an image to a WD MyBook. When I tried to restore image to HDD it says that it cannot. Macrium says its because the sector sizes are different. WD MyBook is 4096 and hard drive is 512. Any idea as how to resolve this.

Are you trying to restore to a paritition already created which may be wrong try deleting it so there is no paritition just free space so MR can set correct size

Turns out I was. I could not delete it. Had to create it again and then delete. You were spot on. Restored the image just fine. Thank you for your help.

I saw this earlier but I have an enclosed External WD MyBook 1T drive with only a USB connection. Thank you for taking the time to help me. I really appreciate the fact that there are people like you, samuria, and others that take the time to help others.
