Anyone know the factory set sector size in a Sony VGC-RA830G? Trying to recover data from a toasted array for a client, but we can't seem to nail down what the sector size is.

Help if you can

nothing in there with RAID info, other than to just let it use the defaults. After much guessing we did figure out that it used 128K sectors. We were able to recreate the array using UFS Explorer, and successfully recover 99% of the data on the drives.

Glad to hear that you were able to recover most of it. And thanks for the info on the default sector size!
