    Default ntfs-3g optimizations

    http://www.ntfs-3g.org/releases.html

    Looks like ntfs-3g has recently been getting a lot of optimization work:
    STABLE Version 1.1004 (October 4, 2007)
    [...]
    change: file creation performance is improved by 40-80%.

    change: smart directory traversal is 20-200% faster for disk based and 300-600% faster for memory cache based traversals.
    [...]

    Version 1.910-RC (September 10, 2007)

    change: significantly improved the performance of writing many files, typically by 50-1000% (copying files, unpacking, untarring packages, compilation, directory synchronization, ...).

    change: improved the performance of writing multi-GB size files, particularly after the creation of many thousands of other files.
    [...]

    change: improved concurrent write performance.

    I've read that too. But why should it be so much faster, it is already ok in my opinion.

    Well informer ntfs-3g was slow as hell with fragmented partitions, that improved much already. It is always getting better - I use it usually without problems.
