Hi community,

Just got an SSD, plug it in, installed windows, drivers, etc... Then I pluged back my HDD. I want to format it, and use it for storage, while my SSD is for my programs and OS. I know i should put it to NTFS format, but i don't really know which allocation size to put? Is it 4k (or 4096)? I just want to make sure. Thanks. Also, should I delete the system reserved partition for that HDD?
