    Hello mantra,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Please accept our apologies for the delay with the response.

    I'm afraid that none of the currently available Acronis True Image versions allows you to change 'cluster size' during the image restoration process. We therefore recommend that you use special partition and disk managing software such as Acronis Disk Director Suite 10.0 to change 'cluster size' after you restore the image. You can find more information on what 'cluster size' is and how it can be changed using Acronis Disk Director Suite 10.0 in the respective User's Guide.

    We also recommend that you download and install the free trial version of Acronis Disk Director Suite 10.0 to see how the software works on your particular software\hardware configuration prior to purchasing it at Acronis official online store.

    If you want us to change the behaviour of Acronis True Image in any way or add some new features to this product, please feel free to post any of your suggestions in Acronis True Image WISH-LIST thread.

    If you have any further questions concerning Acronis software, please feel free to submit a request for technical support or post any of them on this forum. We will certainly try to help you in resolving any issues.

    Thank you.

    Why would you want a 512 byte cluster size, that's rather inefficient.

    Again , here comes a variant of Howard's speech number 23:

    1. Format the drive any way you wish.
    2. Restore the FILES, not the image. Takes longer, but avoids the formaating issues.
