    I was wondering if anyone was aware of a WD tool that was able to convert SATA hard drives from 512e logical sector size to 4k? I have two WDC Gold WD101KRYZ-01JPDB1 that I wanted to convert. I also found the following command that might work, but would prefer to use a manufacturers tool if possible.

    Code:
    hdparm /dev/sdX --set-sector-size 4096
