Advanced Format disks have a 4 KB physical sector size and emulate a logical addressing interface of 512 bytes. For more information on Advanced Format technology please see International Disk Drive Equipment and Materials Association (IDEMA) website.
Cloning to a disk with different logical sector size is not supported. E.g., you can clone a 512 bytes/sector disk to 512 bytes/sector disk; you can clone a 4096 bytes/sector disk to 4096 bytes/sector disk; but you cannot clone a disk with logical sector size 512 bytes to disk with logical sector size 4096 bytes.
The disk management functionality of Acronis Backup is not available for disks with a 4-KB logical sector size.
