I'd like to limit server disk fragmentation when multiple clients upload to an FTP server simultaneously.
Is there a way to tell FTP server to preallocate disk space for a big block of an incoming file, and to keep incrementing in big blocks?
Alternatively, is there a way to tell the FTP server to preallocate entire file's worth, and write out incoming FTP packets in a more sequential pattern.
Defragmenting files after fransfer is not acceptable: it will take too long to defragment.
I am using IIS 6.0, but other FTP server products would be a welcome replacement.
