Windows NTFS best file allocate unit size for a Backup-to-Disk Partition
Posted on 2010-11-19
I'm configuring a 2TB partition for backup-to-disk, and normally I just take the default file allocate unit size of default, or 4096. I'm wondering if since I'll have a small number of actual files and the files themselves will be very large, would it help performance if I set the size to be much higher than the default? If so, would I put it at the highest of 64K?
