Got it. What does this mean?

A newly released Sabrent utility enables users to re-format the Rocket drive and choose the sector size of their liking, either 512-bytes or 4K bytes.

As you are going to migrate the contents from one storage drive to another, it’s best that the sector sizes are the same. If the current one is 512 bytes then format the SSD to the same; hopefully, it’s at the usual 4 kB.

Assuming your C: Drive is your current boot disk this info is for the current hard disk/ssd youre using. The matching information would be on the new ssd.

Once you connect the ssd you would need to go in disk managment and initialize it/turn it online. You might need to create the partition with the matching sectors specified above.

Let us know if you manage with the provided link.

This suggests that your current hard drive is using the 512e Advanced Format - I.e. it's formatted with 4 kB sectors, but the hdd itself processes them as if they were 512 bytes sectors. Double-check the hdd's sector format by doing the following:

(1) Press Win key + R to bring up the Run window
(2) Enter msinfo32
(3) Choose System Summary > Components > Storage > Disks
(4) Check what it says about your current hdd in the part labelled Bytes/Sector

Whatever value it says (512 or 4096/4k), your new SSD must be formatted to the same value.
