I didn't read it, this is my experience. In fact I found no useful sour=

for performance tuning the NTFS filesystem, neither at MS nor other
internet sites, or informations on throughput limits or the like.

Where did you read that NTFS is constrained to only 12MB/sec?

Add more memory, upgrade to W2k and turn on the index service.

Hi,
I have a NT4 server which has a few folders with a fairly large
number of files. 4000, or 12000 say. =3DA0Most of the files are fairly =

r is not

his.
The server is a 333Mhz PII with 256meg of ram. with over 180 megs of ra=
