Help. I have a SAMSUNG HM640JJ 640GB drive that failed but is working fine now. I bought a Western Digital Scorpio Black wd5000bpkt since I dont need even 500GB since all my data (photos and video) are kept on double backed up external WD drives.
I now want to clone my Samsung to my WD, 1st problem is that the WD is smaller so it wont let me just clone… Then I rwad how since people are going from disk drives to SSD… That I could use EaseUS Partition Master… But now I get an error that the sector size is not identical. Samsung is 512 and WD is 4k.
B\c my samsung failed i restored it and it reallty has no data on it other then the recovery partition. My plan was to just clone the drives and then do a system restore from the recovery partition on the new WD drive to do a clean system install…
Please help… How do I clone from the larger samsung to the smaller WD and how does the sector size come into play…?
