If so, then i could use 512bytes for the data storage partition and 64kb for the games partition? Or not?
Having a higher per unit allocation size will improve sequential read times, but on the other hand will inflate the size requirements of your applications. (especially those with lots of small sized files
It's a give and take proposition; you do want increased performance, or more disk space to install more games?
well ill make a partition for games with about 40gb as i usually dont have more than 2-3 games installed. what i mainly want is performance.
for the other drive i want space for all my data and stuff that i dont access a lot. (movies, photos, videos, mainly big data files from 150mb-8gb and then like 2000 files with a few kbs to 50mb)
So should I put put 64kb and 512b respectively?
Edit: Also, won't the 64kb make files more prone to fragmentation or is it the otherwise?
