Question on some system tweaks

Recommended Posts

Hi cheeseball,



Here is the quote from Microsoft.


If you have not installed any 16-bit applications on a Windows NT-based computer, you can turn off automatic short (8-character name, 3-character extension) file name generation to speed up file and folder access on your computer running Windows NT.


Existing files using the short name format will still be available to 32-bit programs, but all files created after this change is implemented will be unavailable to older 16-bit programs.



When Windows accesses a directory on an NTFS volume, it updates the LastAccess time stamp on each directory it detects. Therefore, if there are a large number of directories, this can affect performance.

Microsoft claims it would take tens of thousands of folders to create a problem.

On a heavily used NTFS volume, this can affect performance.
