To find out the size of cells (clusters) on the hard disk, it is sufficient to understand how the forms this value. This size is set when formatting the hard disk by the program, the algorithms which are the same for all utilities of this plan. For example, for media with less than 1 GB a size of cluster up to 1 KB to 4 GB, this value is increased to 4 KB, etc.
However, it is not always PivotTables programs formatting correct. When you convert from one file system to another the size of a cluster may be equal to some value, for the resulting standard file system. For example, after converting a hard drive from FAT32 to NTFS , the size of the cells storing information does not exceed a value of 512 bytes.
