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.. :blink:

 

Which disk model?

WD My Book 4TB (oh s**t, the price has now jumped up from 180 to 250 euros! :thumbdown )

Which disk model?

WD My Book 4TB (oh s**t, the price has now jumped up from 180 to 250 euros! :thumbdown )

 

Seemingly still available:

You can seemingly also manage to pay 999 Euros for it, though :w00t: :unsure::

http://www.amazon.it...rds=Western 4Tb

 

Getting 2x2Tb each seems somewhat more realistic ;):

Well, now it's back to 180 euros on Amazon. Wow, that's a variable price indeed.

I'd like to wait for a good promotion, though.

 

My idea was:

master --> 1 new 4tb

backup --> 1 owned 2tb + 1 new 2tb or owned small old drives (sum<1.7tb)

 

EDIT: 3tb currently costs only 10-20euros more than a new 2tb! I'll choose that and maybe in the future upgrade to a possible 5tb for a single master

 

 

Thanks for the help Jaclaz.
