NTFS and FAT Performance

In this article I will try to evaluate the performance of file systems used in operating systems Windows95/98/ME, as well as Windows NT/2000. Article does not include graphs and test results, as these results are too heavily dependent on the case, testing methods and specific systems, and have almost no connection with reality. In this paper I will try instead to describe the general trends and considerations related to the output file systems. After reading the material, you will get information for reflection and will be able to draw conclusions, to understand what system will be faster in your circumstances, and why. Perhaps some facts to help you optimize the performance of their vehicles in terms of the file systems, get some solutions that will enhance the speed of operation of all the computer. The review mentions three-FAT system (hereinafter FAT16), FAT32 and NTFS, as well as the fundamental question facing the users Windows2000 is a choice between these options. I offer an apology to users of other file systems, but the problem of choosing between the two, apparently quite equivalent, options acutely now only available for Windows2000. I hope nevertheless that the views expressed seem curious to you, and you can make some conclusions and the systems with which you are working. The article is divided into multiple partitions, each of which focuses on a single issue of performance. Many of the sections in certain places are closely intertwined. Nevertheless, in order not to turn art into porridge, in the relevant section, I will write only that the discussion is relevant to the topic at the moment, and about anything more. If you have not found any important facts in the text-not rush to wonder: most likely you will meet them later. I ask you not to make any hasty conclusions about the advantages and disadvantages of a system, as well as the contradictions and pitfalls in these discussions very, very much. In the end, I will try to collect everything that can be said about the performance of systems in the wild. The most fundamental property of any file system, affecting the performance of all operations of disc-structure of the organization and storage of information, that is, it was, in fact, set up a file system itself. The first section is an attempt to analyze precisely this aspect of work, that is Physical work with the data structures and file system. Theoretical considerations, in principle, may be missing are the ones who are interested in purely practical aspects of performance file systems can apply immediately to the second part of the article. To begin, I would like to point out that any file system in one way or another store files. Access to data files, and the main part of working with the file system, and therefore, first of all, you need to say a word about it. Any file system stores data files in a certain volume-sectors, which are used as sensors and the driver is the smallest unit of useful information drive. The sector, in the vast majority of today's systems is 512 bytes, and all file systems simply read the information and pass it without any processing applications. Does there any exceptions? Virtually none. If the file is stored in compressed or encrypted form as possible, for example, the system-NTFS is, of course, to reinstate or decrypt information spent time and resources processor. In other cases, reading and writing of the file data is carried out at the same pace as the file system, you will not be used. Turn attention to the basic processes carried out by the system to access files:
