Our Western Digital drives keep failing to run the backup properly. Having look at the following web page: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/1780.external-backup-drives-compatibility-list.aspx
it states that:
'Note that Microsoft recommend drives are reformatted as NTFS before being used with Windows Server Backup (WSB). Large drives (eg 3TB+) should be reformatted with 512 bytes per cluster as large drives tend to be factory formatted with 4096 bytes per cluster which can cause problems with WSB.'
How on earth do I go about reformatting as 512bytes per cluster? Can't see it specified in the format command, and the Windows formatting tool goes on about an allocation unit size, but nothing about bytes per cluster.
