comment Handling whitespaces in the name of a ZFS dataset in a shell script
Alongside the accepted answer below, with this answer (to How can I take the output of a shell script and place it in a file on the command line?) I realise that for the output to file – for the append – I need >> (not &> or &>>). In feedback to Apple I asked for sysdiagnose to be added to Apple Open Source – if this happens I'll make public my other changes to the script, most of which are unrelated to ZFS.

The question as originally asked is answered. The output to file criterion can be separate.

/bin/bash did not workaround. I edited the question to include more context, and to show more clearly how I'm experimenting based on this answer. Partial success. I could be making some very basic mistake somewhere! Thanks …

More context, and the result of an experiment based on the first answer.

This (paste) results in properties for only one dataset. An alternative approach fails in a different way. pastebin.com/nJQZq64s shows datasets at the time of writing. Should I edit the original question to include more detail?

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?

comment Is StoreJet Transcend (0x2329) an Advanced Format drive?
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.
