  1. I disagree and so does the architect who designed VMS. If the MFT is at the centre cylinder and files around it (read both sides) then the disk throughput will be quicker than if the MFT is at one end of the disk. Moot point however with SSD's taking over the world.

  4. >i always defrag my system partiton to have EXE and DLL files on outer tracks of HD so seeking is smallest and MFT is close to outer tracks too, without prefetch this is fast, but with prefetch its double the seek/acces Cylinder zero is closest to the centre of the disk, so I think you want to put your dll's on the inside. VMS whose file system was used as a start for NTFS always had the MFT in the centre of the disk to reduce seeking. Then you cluster your exe's and dll's close to the centre. Derek

    SP3 contains all previous updates.
  8. >p.s : A small doubt - hosts file is used only by IE and windows apps or ALL browsers refer to the hosts file ? The hosts file is used as the first step of the dns lookup system. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb727005.aspx
