RE: Windows 98

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Just to add my $0.02 about the "Wonders" of Windows 95 (or 98 or even NT's)
32 bit file system.  The smaller your cluster size, the more clusters you
have.  There is an overhead associated with managing a larger number of
clusters, which can result in slower performance overall.  Anyone planning
on shrinking their cluster sizes may want to consider this.  A bit of wasted
hard drive space (ie, 32 kb clusters on a 2 GB partition) may not be such a
bad thing.  May even make your system a bit faster.  Besides, hard drives
are so cheap now. :^)
