Format types, volumes sizes and clusters
Posted on 2004-03-29
I would like to know please the following:
1. What is the maximum volume size FAT32 can take? What is the most efficient volume size for this format type? Also, what is the most efficient cluster size for FAT32, and is cluster size dependant on the vloume size?
2. Same question please for NTFS...
3. For the 2 questions above, does Win2K and WinXP handle these volumes in the same efficiency, or does a 60Gig partition (for example...) behave differently on WinXP Pro rather than on Win2K?
4. How do I claculate the HDD's size by simply reading the number of heads/cylinders/tracks etc...?
Thank-you to all who reply.
