Aligning FAT32 before converting to NTFS

Postby DrTeeth » Sun Nov 04, 2012 12:33 pm

It did not work as expected here. I aligned a FAT32 partition, don't
know if it was unaligned or not beforehand, then converted to NTFS and
got a performance-sapping 512 bytes in each allocation unit. I empties
the partition and formatted it and got 4096 allocation units as
desired.

DrT,

Did you use the WinXP convert.exe?

No, used Win8 convert.exe.
