I am running windows XP professional. The problem is there is an application which does a lot of file I/O (nearly process 1 million files ). Initially it runs ok but with the passage time lets say after 10 hours it slows down. We discovered that within the first few hours it processes 100,000 files after that the average processing goes down to 30,000 files in an hour.
We looked at the MFT percent in use and that was 99%. REAL PATHETIC. ABOVE ALL the total MFT size was only 190 MB out of 106 GB available free size.
Clearly the MFT size is the problem. Is there a way I can increase the MFT size make it like 20 % of the total disk space. Is this parameter in our control or it is contolled by the OS?
thanks in advance.
