Support for Advanced Format (4K-sector) hard disks


Does Kaseya Backup support Advanced Format (4K-sector) hard disks?



Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 can back up hard disks with a sector size of 4 KB (known as Advanced Format disks), as well as traditional hard disks that have 512-byte sectors.

Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 can recover data from one disk to another as long as both disks have the same logical sector size. (This is the sector size presented to the operating system.) Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 automatically aligns the disk’s volumes if necessary. This way, the start of a cluster in the file system always matches the start of a physical sector on the disk.

To check which Acronis version a Kaseya Backup agent has, go to Backup > Install/Remove page. All new installations from Kaseya v6.5 and later will get Acronis v11.5.
