Well, if I hadn't tried it out for myself I wouldn't have believed what a difference this can make to running on NTFS.

Last time I installed to this hard drive I trialed Diskeeper 9 Professional and, apart from being able to defragment the paging file and master file tables at boottime I found, using Diskeeper Pro's built in Frag-Shield program, that one drive had an MFT that was too small.

Well would you believe it. This time after re-installing I checked with DK9 Pro and found that all four drive partitions had MFTs which were too small!

After padding them out with Frag-Shield, choosing the default settings, I ran Frag-Shield again and found that the MFT on drive C: was still too small, but was able to increase its size by choosing a setting manually.

The performance of the computer has improved dramatically. It now runs smooth and fast, and having DK9 Pro defragment the four partitions automatically and seamlessly in the background, means that I can work on the computer without interruption and may never have to defrag again.

Now - that - is very pleasing. :)

Take a look at the screen-shots on this link below: NTFS Performance & Preventative Drive Maintenance.
