Also, XP, Vista and 7 don't use native 4K transfer for HDD/SSD access yet, only 512 bytes per sectors.
This was added ca. around Win 8.x or 10, if memory serves.

For Vista/7, the situation is a hybrid one, which makes stuff even worse. If you change from a 512-byte drive to an 'advanced format' (native 4k, emulated 512b), you can go through a lot of crap:

Wow! Thanks a lot for the link! I had no idea it's that worse on Vista.
