I bought a new 1tb HD adding it to a 750gb drive. I have a duel boot Windows/Linux Mint Debian setup. I did a clonezilla to copy the 750gb drive to the 1tb drive (it used partclone, I believe).
I did an fdisk /dev/sdb (the newer 1tb drive) to examine the drive. It showed this error:
The device presents a logical sector size that is smaller than the physical sector size. Aligning to a physical sector size boundary is recommended or performance may be impacted.
$ /sbin/fdisk -v
fdisk (util-linux 2.20.1)
Is this a real problem, or is this an fdisk version issue? If it is a real issue, how do I deal with it? Esp with copying over the Windows recovery partition and windows partitions?
I am also wondering about design issues. I would prefer Windows os on the original and my Windows data (user data, etc) on the new drive and the reverse for my Linux, but how hard is it to switch a Windows data volume to another disk (it is already copied onto that disk). The easier road I think would just be let /dev/sda be for Windows and /dev/sdb be for linux, but performance would be better the other way. Thoughts?
