Formatting Disk Drive after Using DISKPART.EXE to Align Disks?

We are using EMC storage for our Exchange 2007 sp1 server - running Windows 2003 ENT x64 R2
I fould this article on the Microsoft site:

It does not give you the paramites for the format command - either using the disk manager snap in or by the command line.

I need to make sure I have my size set to 64K  - we are using BASIC disks with Primary partitions

Again - I do not want to undo what I did with DISKPART.exe.
Thanks.

In Disk Manager, right-clic on the LUN you've aligned and select Format.. Give the drive a drive letter. select an allocation unit size of 64K,  give it a name and off you go. Formatting the LUN does not overwrite the alignment offset that you've just created.
