What do you guys think? Are you seeing even the slightest performance increase? To be honest I highly doubt it.
NTFS is far better than FAT32, but its not perfect. Windows still splits files to fit wherever it can, so there are still fragmentation issues. The reason you don't notice fragmentation as much as you would have 10 years ago is due largely better hard drive technology.
