I need some advise on upgrading disks.

I need to upgrade my 500 gb HD501LJ harddrives to 2 tb HD204UI.

Is it possible to clone the disks directly, considering different sector sizes.

I have the latest Paragon 2012 suite.

DS207+ DSM 3.1-1636

If not should I use a different cloning utility, or is there another procedure to follow.

best regards.
