Format a SAS or SSD SFF disk with a different sector format size

Hi,

When I purchase a HP disk it comes with a sector format of 512n or 512e.

Is there a way to change this format?

I want all my disks to be 512n or 512e (I've comes across a problem when I mix disks of different format sector sizes)

It is impossible to change the hard disk's sector size. It is a characteristic of the hard disk itself.

 

Hope this helps!
