I am running a server with SQL server with 2 x 960GB NVME Datacenter SSD in RAID1, windows files and database and default database files on the same disk.
This server is using the default format allocation size 4Kb.
I have read that 64Kb is better for SQL and this server is only hosting SQL server.
Should I reformat the server and reinstall Windows 2019 server with 64Kb allocation size ?

@egyteam , SQL Server use data pages = 8 kbyte, it always reads "Extents" = 8 page = 64 kbytes from disks, therefore it's always suggested to format disks for SQL Server data files in that size.
But in times of such fast SSD you won't notice a difference, so I wouldn't make efforts to reformat the disk.
