I am facing typical "size on disk" issue on windows 2008 OS.
I am using NTFS partition with cluster size of 4k and in that Size of disk is almost triple the real size. This is becaus I have large number of small files in the system.
I tries to reduce the cluster size to 2kb but in that also but that also didnt help me to reduce the "size on disk" very much.
I tried to use the compression by ticking "Compress this drive to save disk space" but that also didnt help me to reduce the "size on disk" at all. it seems compression does not work properly on small files.
I tried to use the compression + 2kb cluster but that also didnt help me to reduce the "size on disk". If I open 1 single file's property then it says size as "1.33 KB" and size on disk "4.00 KB" !! how this can happen as my cluster size is already 2kb. I checked cluster size using following command.
fsutil fsinfo ntfsinfo
Can anybody suggest me what option do I have to reduce disk space?
