vmfs3 to vmfs5 datastore

Is there a way to tell of a vmfs5 datastore was simply upgraded from vmfs3(which lacks some vmfs5 features) or if it was created as a vmfs5 datastore without any upgrade used?

I figured it out myself.  Look for the block size.

This method will only be valid if the VMFS3 datastore had a block size greater than 1MB.

Here is a possible solution for you;
