Yes you divide by 4096 & if you get a even number it is aligned. It has to do with if Windows places its sneaky 200mb partition on the front of the drive I think

105906176 / 4096= 25856 OK

Fire up AS-SSD and see if it give you a OK on alignment



Source:

To check the alignment of your SSD's partition, it is quite simple.

In windows 7, run msinfo32 by typing it into the search box on your start menu and hitting enter.

click on: components => storage => disks

Look for your SSD and check the partition starting offset.

It needs to be divisible by 4096 (ie return a whole number when you divide by this) otherwise the alignment is not correct.

So I understand that HDD's also want to be aligned, does it follow the same "divide by 4096" rule?
