I’ve bought a WD Green , WD20EARX model. I wanted to use Advanced format mod. and I’m using windows 7 64 bit. I’ve used Jumper between pin no. 7 and 8 . but I heared that there’s no need to use jumper when OS is widnwos 7.
My question is , is that true? and should I remove the jumper? and Wil it cause losing data?
and for using advanced format , should I have just one partiton? wich allocation size should I choose for best performance when I want to format drive? Im using the drive , most for archiving large size videos.
I installed WD Align Utility , and it says that the partition in aligned.
I used “wmic partition get Name, StartingOffset” command and its output is
Disk #0, Partition #0 1048576
and 1048576 is multiple of 4096.
here is list of partitions (list created by diskpart)
Partition ### Type Size Offset
Partition 1 Primary 1863 GB 1024 KB
I’m really confused. should I do anything?
