Review: Replaces any boot drive
 


What happens when the drive is formatted differently? On smaller drives such as 64GB you would like to keep the cluster size small, so you won't loose much space when files do not complete a cluster. The bigger the drive or partition and the bigger the filesize the bigger the cluster size should be. As the benchmark shows, using 512 Bytes for a Cluster does diminish performance.

Clustersize 512Bytes:

Clustersize 1kB:

Clustersize 2kB:

Clustersize 4kB:

Clustersize 8kB:

On a small drive it seems that 1kB Clusters would be the best option, because it gives you the best performance. If you have bigger drives, 2k and 4k seem viable options too.
