File System Factors

There are several factors related to how the disk is logically structured and the file system set up and maintained, that can have a tangible effect on performance. These are basically independent of the hard disk and will have similar impacts on any hard disk. They serve almost solely to influence the real-world performance of the hard disk. Better decisions about how you manage your hard disk's file system can translate directly into better performance on any PC.

See the section on hard disk file systems for much more information on these issues.
