    Hello, I was in the process of mounting a second backup hard drive for my server, and in the process came across the following error when I ran the 'fdisk -l' command:

    "Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary."

    Is this something I should be worried about? Is it fixable without having to move or put at risk all my hosting clients on that drive?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Not a problem - ignore it
    The concept of "cylinders" is meaningless on modern disks
