4kn drives with PLUGABLE USB 3.0 SATA LAY FLAT HARD DRIVE DOCK working?


#1

Hi,

what i want to know is your “PLUGABLE USB 3.0 SATA LAY FLAT HARD DRIVE DOCK” working with disk with “advanced 4kn” Format.
This mean the drive will use 4k sectors and no 512b emulation.

Thanks

Hello,

Thanks for contacting Plugable! To clarify, our docks support both the standard 4K and 512B emulation (aka 512e) sector sizes.

But 512e is only provided for legacy hardware in case the drive or OS cannot support the 4K sector size. All modern drives will use 4K sectors with our dock.

Hope this helps clarify. Please contact support@plugable.com with any questions!

Thank you,
Jordan
