Average block size

Based on my intuition I agree with Nonix's statement in the Accuracy template, which is located at the top of the Overwrite the disk section. A common block size of 4096 bytes is equivalent to 4KB. ~ Filam (talk) 03:29, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

Just fixed it!
(For the record only: The article suggested using blocksizes of 4MB!)
I was unsure about the capabilities of dumpe2fs, so i wrote a new accuracy-TP. It works on Filesystem-layer so i think it's not suitable for 512e. Besides it assumes a working filesystem directly written on the device. Feel free to remove the Template if you know better. :) --Nonix (talk) 10:55, 21 September 2012 (UTC)
