    What Disk Allocation Units should I use, RAID0 or JBOD

    funkytwig Level 1

      Hi, what Disk Allocation ubits should I use for drives.  The default in NTFS is 4k, is that OK or should I make them bigger?  If I use different drives to store different things should the different drives have different Allocation Units.


      I have a USB3 enclosure with 2 TB drives in it.  Would it be better to use JBOD (i.e. pass throught) so I effectivly have 2 seperate drives I can put different stuff on or RAID0 whitch gives better performance in a single volume?
