Optimizing NTFS file system performance

Recommended Posts

The hard disk can sometimes become a bottleneck in overall system performance. While not much can be done to overcome hardware-related limitations, admins can optimize the NTFS file system for better performance.

Legacy filenames

To disable backward compatibility, you can use a tool that was included with the Windows Resource Kit called Fsutil. Fsutil is a command-line tool designed to modify the behavior of the file system. The command for disabling backward compatibility is:


Fsutil behavior set disable8dot3 1

Resize the master file table

Fsutil behavior set mftzone 1

Disable last access date

FSUTIL behavior set disablelastaccess 1
