If the MFT is 99% full then there will be an increase in fragmentation. An increase in fragmentation leads to a decrease in performance.Bob Cerelli said:Is there a way to provide more technical information other than making a guess?
For example, is there any documentation you can provide? Otherwise the claim that any increase in peformance produced by padding the MFT zone when it isn't completedly allocated, seems like it is on a bit of thin ice (if that phrase is understood).
But, there is already preallocated space, called the MFT zone, that allows for expansion.RAM-PAGE said:Having tried the product, an educated guess would say that pre-allocating space in the MFT allows for things, especially on-line games, to have a reference point available in advance of being downloaded to the drive.
