I had these drives in my WHS v1 server with the jumper enabled. When moving them to WHS 2011 I did remove the jumper and reformat the drives. I'm wondering if they are in fact using 4k or 512? Is there any other way to check?
Same situation for me 9months later. Any insight or new knowledge surrounding this issue with the WD20EARS drives showing up as non advanced 512sector under scanner but show advanced/aligned under WD utility?
Maybe just leave a finally answer for the next guy 9months from now.
my wd20ears drives reported as non advanced format with no pin installed but my threewd20earx drives are showing as advanced format again with no pins installed
I thought the issue only affect the ears range
so I purchased 3 x wd30earx red drives and all are now showing as advanced ormat
