[hfs-user] Problem of Allocation Block Size
Tue, 30 Apr 2002 16:30:40 +0530
When I create a volume of bigger size for eg. 640 MB
Now since allocation units is fixed at 65536.
Bytes per allocation unit becomes
640 * 2 ^20 / 65536 = 10 * 2^10 (10K) (approx)
That means if i give even one allocation block
for each file i am physically giving him 10k space
even though file may be some 100 bytes which
results in space wastage.
I also believe there is no solution because each
file should have atleast one allocation block
and each file should start from a new allocation
I am just wondering if I am right???
Or there is some alternative!!
Waitng for ur comments.
