Windows Server Back on SBS2011 using 4TB drive with drive sector 4k
Posted on 2014-07-16
I have recently had my 2x 2TB seagate drives fail that have been used for the SBS2011 Server Backups for ages. These were replaced with new 2x4TB seagate drives. However the backups keep failing since the new drives.
I have done some digging and it looks like SBS Server back has issues with drives with 4k sectors and seems to only want to on drives with 512 byte sectors.
is there a way around this ? i have seen some links about 512e formats, but im not sure how to get this working on the external 4TB seagate drive and then to get windows server backups to work with this?
