Hi all,
Can i know what are the file system benchmark tools that are available to test for NTFS performance on windows?
Or are they any other ways to test its performance?
I've found for quite some time and most of the benchmark are run on linux:(

and what is the equivalent to check the cluster size of FAT32, as i know for NTFS i can just run the below command in command prompt
>>fsutil fsinfo ntfsinfo F:
but when i'm trying to look at a drive using FAT32, fsutil is not applicable.

thanks in advance.

here are 3 different ones
Fat32 Cluster size: Open the Command Prompt, use chdsk [drive:] Among other useful info, this reports the cluster size as "xxxx bytes in each allocation unit"

Perhaps of help--the Win 7 Reliability Monitor
Control Panel\Type "Reliability" (without quotes) in the search box at top right.

Also various Win 7 tools
Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Performance Information and Tools, then click Advanced Tools on the left side.
