Seachest is the Software you should have a look at


Perhaps sg_format from sg3_utils also works.

Subject: 512e/4kn drive formatting

I notice most drive vendors supply  512e and  4Kn format drives. Is it possible to buy a 512e drive and use is as a 4kn drive
or possibly  reformat to 4kn?  I’m specifically looking at the Seagate Exos drives...
