Graded Discussion Board for the course “System Programming (CS609)” will be open on Tuesday August 12, 2014 and it will be closed on Wednesday August 13, 2014.

Discussion Topic

Increase in NTFS cluster size will decrease the volume size. Support or contradict this statement with proper logic.

Read the instructions carefully before sending your comments:

  1. GDB will have weight-age of 5% of your total subject marks.
  2. Your discussion must be based on logical facts.
  3. You should post your comments on the Graded Discussion Board & not on the Regular MDB. Both will run parallel to each other during the time specified above.

plez tell


or yes

You are wrong.

Increase in ntfs cluster size will decrease volume size.

Saib how can decrease?

explain it???

 I disagree with your statement totally. 

For example, using 64-KB clusters, the maximum NTFS volume size is 256 terabytes minus 64 KB. Using the default cluster size of 4 KB, the maximum NTFS volume size is 16 terabytes minus 4 KB.
look ntfs ka  volume size 256 terabytes-64kb hai when its using 64 kb cluster  .. if we use the cluster size of 4kb then the ntfs volume size will become 16tb-4kb .. means jitna bra cluster utni ziada space use o gi.

hence the volume size decreases when cluster size increases

yup..but what should be further added in it?

 salma iqbal 

give some logic... Why you support 'Yes' or 'NO'

check this way...

An excessive discrepancy between the Size on disk value and the Size value is an indication that the default cluster size is too large for the average file size that you are storing on the volume. In this scenario, it is recommended that you decrease the cluster size. 

Saib Kamal wrote YES after is the content..

Cluster is an allocation unit. If you create file lets say 1 byte in size, at least one cluster should be allocated on FAT file system. On NTFS if file is small enough, it can be stored in MFT record itself without using additional clusters.

When file grows beyond the cluster boundary, another cluster is allocated. It means that the bigger the cluster size, the more disk space is wasted, however, the performance is better.

so  salma iqbal  yes or No

SMYousaf yes..

NO cluster increase result in increase of volume 

salma iqbal

yep, its 100% correct. just write in ur own words.
