My guess is that on 4 Kb sectored drive the difference may possibly be noticeable, but I won't buy the 40% figures
Well, ok then (you're still considering the AF emulation, right?).
On the already given thread there are related references and considerations: http://reboot.pro/to...-issue/?p=85960
I've seen that twice, but I REALLY couldn't find useful info on that difficult 3 page thread about multiboot Vista+Xp and Vista's wrong partitions! (my questions, then, were about Xp and AF drivers)
Also, in a post you say: "WD Align seems like another tool to test [...] the WD Quick Formatter [...] is necessary in order to optimize the performance of the drive."
Sorry, I'm totally confused..
Which disk model?
WD My Book 4TB (oh s**t, the price has now jumped up from 180 to 250 euros! )
