Four questions regarding volume & allocation.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
For a 64GB 3.0 Flash/Jump Drive...
1. How much volume size (per file or files within disc) is needed in order for NTFS to be faster than FATex (maybe to make this question easier... would be one file that is 32 GB be processed faster by NTFS or FATex)?
2. I understand that NTFS has a different allocation structure than FATex which is something like "as allocation clusters/size increases, allocation volume on disk decreases?" The actual question is for the 64GB USB and the format of my drive. I want to know if a filled 64GB drive would be best suited in NTFS or FATex in terms of being faster?
3. In addition to question #2. I do have a tendency to compress. Compression is only supported with 4,096 kb (correct?) which... would that leave my drive slower with 96 mb of pre-used volume. However, that means the speed of the drive will be slightly slower than the max allocation of FATex.... right? unless I maybe decrease the allocation to the minimum allocation of NTFS but my concerns are speed.
4. Lastly, I'm not familiar with the programming of file structures through allocation/uni-code/etc of the drive itself with its format. I'm quite a visual learner and must know what each function or address means in order have a purpose for doing the programming/use of defrag/file setup. Since I don't have a style of learning supporting just those numbers/alg's/etc but rather "why am I typing this for the computer..." what would you recommend I pursue or do since programming is entirely having the mind-set of numbers and having it come normally with little reason? I have yet to take intermediate algebra in college and would just like to know because somewhere... my mind does click with computers but is it worth expanding my perception of what I'm going to do down the road? I'd just be thankful for any advice. If you'd like to know more, I know the model number meaning of graphics/video cards which clicks with me and I can catch information on how to hide information that I don't want to see using a program/etc (maybe like a little portion of python) I know I'm very good with communication as well but I'll be grateful for any advice you may have.
This question is associated to Windows and the patented FATex. I also added question 4 because it can be associated with the FAT structuring and accessibility rather than what I should be looking into.
Thanks again for reading! thumb.gif

bump. Should I stick to NTFS since it was built to be better than FAT?
