Do you mean "sector" or "cluster"?  The above article  kbid=314878, was what I was going to point you to for cluster size in XP for NTFS.  A sector is the smallest addressable part of a disk, and it's 512 bytes.  As the above article says, the standard cluster size is 4 kilobytes.

512 is what I wanted to know.  Thanks.
