Intel Data Migration SW (Acronis): does not know what partition alignment to use?!

I recently purchased Intel 320 Series 120GB SSD.

I used provided by Intel Data Migration SW (Acronis) to clone my current Windows 7 boot drive to SSD.

Everything seemed to go well. I can boot and work from this new SSD.

But when I go and check partition alignment I see very strange numbers (as if Data Migration software did not know that target drive is SSD).

Partition alignment is 31KB !!!

here is the info reported by msinfo32 -> Components -> Storage -> Disks:

Description Disk drive

 

Manufacturer (Standard disk drives)

 

Model INTEL SSDSA2CW120G3 ATA Device

 

Bytes/Sector 512

 

Media Loaded Yes

 

Media Type Fixed hard disk

 

Partitions 1

 

SCSI Bus 1

 

SCSI Logical Unit 0

 

SCSI Port 1

 

SCSI Target ID 1

 

Sectors/Track 63

 

Size 111.79 GB (120,031,511,040 bytes)

 

Total Cylinders 14,593

 

Total Sectors 234,436,545

 

Total Tracks 3,721,215

 

Tracks/Cylinder 255

 

Partition Disk # 3, Partition # 0

 

Partition Size 111.79 GB (120,031,478,784 bytes)

 

Partition Starting Offset 32,256 bytes

Why Data Migration software used an Offset incompatible with SSDs?

And is there a way to fix that?
