smartmon Tools line interpretation help

Jorge Bozzarello

Hello, I'm sorry to bother you, I'm using your tool and I get this result in the line "sector size", I do not know how to interpret it. If physical and logical are the same or there was no reading of physical sector, thank you.

C:\Program Files\smartmontools\bin>smartctl.exe -a /dev/sda

The above sector size is reported if the corresponding field in IDENTIFY
data (word 106) is unset (0x0000) or valid (0x4000).

To check what the drive actually returns in IDENTIFY data, try:

# smartctl --identify=wn /dev/sda
...
  106      0x4000   Physical sector size / logical sector size
...

Regards,
Christian
