    What NTFS Allocation unit size should I use for 750 SSD?

    Bill_VA

      Just took delivery of a new Intel 750 PCI SSD card.  How should I format it? I assume I'd format it with the Windows 7 installer.  But what allocation unit size should I use?

       

      I'm a web developer, not a gamer.  Most of my time I deal with small'ish html files, large graphic and video files.

       

      My plan is to partition the 400GB into 3 drives, one for the OS, one for my documents and Outlook files, and one for all my wwwroot files and projects.  This is probably a leftover habit when I had multiple hard drives in my PC, but now I'm used to it and like keeping files organized like this.  I guess I could format each drive with different allocation sizes.  Suggestions?

       

      Thanks
