comment Is StoreJet Transcend (0x2329) an Advanced Format drive?
I added a bounty for attention … in retrospect, it might be better to think of this question as requiring authoritative reference. That reference is not found in the Transcend area – or am I missing something?

This answer is more for the linked question (about methods) than for this question about a specific drive. There's emulation – as some people put it, a drive may lie (not tell the truth) – we don't know whether this drive emulates something other than its true sector size. And so the results of things such as hdparm may not reveal the truth.

comment Does Microsoft Office 2010 have version control?
In Word 2013 (version unknown) there's the interface to manage versions, but unless I'm missing something: no way to save (add) a version. Maybe the same is true of Office 2010. Incidentally the SharePoint service provided to me is not versions-enabled.

I can't find a matching feature in more recent Word 14.2.4 (120824) so for compatibility, I should hesitate before using Microsoft's implementation of versions.

A couple of mock-ups that might be less challenging.
