Easy way to find bytes per cluster on your disk

I recently learned a new windows command that is not the most intuitive, but it is nice.  I know that when I get a server and I am told that all my volumes are ready to go for SQL Server, I want to make sure that I have a 64K block. This command makes it easy to verify.

fsutil fsinfo ntfsinfo <path>

That is it. Really simple but not the most intuitive. Here are the results.


fsutil example. Only 4k blocks on my c: drive
