HI Friends, a long time without coming here, my greetings for all of you

I put the HDD of my laptop seagate slim laptop hdd sata in an external enclosure in order to run some diagnostics because it was having some booting issues

at first the disk was read good, only som sector damaged in the bootin partition, but when I connect it again via usb port the partitions are recognaized (e.g. F, G, H) but not mounted by the OS

I tried the aomei partition asistant, and when it try to read the partitions I got the following message

the sector (or cluster) size is 4096 must to be 512, changing........

and can't read the content of the partition

is there any way to get the right sector size back without losing the information stored in the HDD

many thanks in advance,

SAMH

Can you clone the hard drive to another to keep any data safe? You usually cannot change a cluster size without formatting or at the least corrupting data. Try GParted, it is a small free live linux operating system that you can run gparted on, it may (I stress may) be able to repair the drive with a disk check enough to recover data.
