physical sector boundary

Postby johnstrasser » Mon Nov 25, 2019 7:52 am

Hi Folks,

So I got a few read errors the other day and figured I'd check my HDDs. Using the linux command "fdisk -l" to list the partitions prior to running badblocks, I got "Partition 1 does not start on physical sector boundary."

While not a critical error (in so far as I can tell), it shows up on both my GPT disks (as opposed to my MBR drives).

Is this just a case of resizing the partitions and sliding them around?

And while I'm at it, does Bootit have a "badblocks" capability that I haven't seen?

Thanks
johnstrasser

It's just and old leftover non-issue warning it puts out.
