Hard Drive Sector bug still alive in System Recovery 2013 ?!

Created: 08 Jan 2013 • Updated: 09 Jan 2013 | 2 comments

It is so annoying!!! I installed the new version today and hoped that it fixes the following bug:

But it seems that this problem is still alive! I use an 3TB hard disk for backing up and this has 4kb sized sectors. This drive isn't shown in System Recovery. And so I cannot configure anything (the status messages for example).

Has anyone else similar problems?

Unfortunately support for disks with 4KB sector size is still not available in SSR.

Not the news you are looking for I know but I'm just the messenger here (so please don't shoot me).

How big an issue is this for you? Are you a partner/reseller with many SSR customers looking for this functionality?

I will check with our Product Management team to see when this is planned to be added into the product.

It's 6 months later, is there any updates from the Product Management team?

Just opened a new discussion and found this through google. :D
