I've recently bought a 1TB SSD (2.5 ADATA SU760 internal) to replace my 240GB SSD (2.5 ADATA SU635 internal) for my gaming PC. As I was about to clone my 240GB SSD for my 1TB SSD on MacriumReflect, a notification appeared saying "The target disk has a incompatible sector size for this operation. Please choose a different disk." I clicked on the "Learn more" and it has something to do with "Sector size" 512Bytes and 4096Bytes are not compatible. Can anyone help me with this problem? If so, can you please explain it in layman's terms because I am not very tech savvy; I assembled this PC in early 2020 and used it for gaming only.

The Spec's:
System Model: B450 AORUS ELITE
System Type: x64-based PC
Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-core Processor
RAM: 16.0 GB


Thanks so much for the help!

You just need to re-partition the new drive to match your old drive.

just go to the disk management console (search bar -> type : diskmgmt.msc )

delete all paritions on your 1TB disk
create a new partition. choose NTFS as file system, at some point you can choose the size of the sectors. chose the option that matches your old partition.
