2048k cluster size?


I was doing some maintenance and I noticed a new cluster size option.

Anyone else try this yet?  Most of my pool is stored with large files (mkvs and such).  I am curious if this would help performance.  

I'm not worried about space lost with small files.

It's new, yeah. 

As for pros vs cons, same ar 64kb clusters.  Less fragmentation, better performance for sequential operations, but more unused "slack space" on the drive. 


Also potential issues in the form of backwards compatibility and NTFS bugs.
