MBRAlign. Does it take care of both alignment and offset?>

stuarty1874

I have attached a screenshot of a VMDK that I have aligned using MBRalign.  It shows the disk as aligned but the offset is still incorrect.

I’m getting a little confused and was hoping someone can push me in the right direction.

Can someone tell me if the MBRalign Tool takes care of both alignment and offset remediation?

Sounds like 16MB offset(32768 sectors); is that what you were expecting?

Yes if fixes the partition offset . remember that the partition should be dividable by 4k block, so 32768 is correct.

Yes - its kind of one in the same. From looking at your screen shot it appears you are good to go.
