Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I need to find out the "Allocation Unit Size" selected when a particular hard-disk was formatted.

It doesn't appear in the properties information for the drive.

Is there any easy way to get this information?

Use the fsutil command:

fsutil fsinfo ntfsinfo [drive letter]

You'll have to run this command with administrator privileges.
