Starhawk Posted October 19, 2004 Report Share Posted October 19, 2004 I'm formatting an 80GB drive that I usually use for video files. When asked to choose an Allocation Unit Size from 512 / 1025 / 2048 / 4096 / 8192 / 16k / 32k / 64k, I chose the largest one: 64k. I've heard if you are going to be using large files that you will get better performance if you use a larger AUR. Is this a bad idea? Any disadvantage for using smaller files on this drive besides it always taking up at least 64k? Should I go with "Default" or something in the middle like 4096?
