2012-09-04 12:28:02.43 spid4s Cannot use file 'C:\Users\UserName\AppData
rosoft SQL Server Local DB\Instances\v11.0\master.
mdf' because it was originally formatted with sector size 4096 and is now on a volume with sector size 3072. Move the file to a volume with a sector size that is the same as or smaller than the original sector size.
2012-09-04 12:28:02.43 spid4s Error: 5178, Severity: 16, State: 1.

Thanks in advance,
