    I am using DSTT menu on my Supercard One SDHC, so far it is performing better than expecting and will stick to it. [​IMG]

    Now, I was wondering which cluster size my SDHC should be formatted to? ATM, my SDHC is formmated to 4KB cluster size.



    If it has been answered before.

    A small cluster size 4KB is good for thousands and thousands of small files. Say you have a file thousands of files that are between 1KB and 5KB. The 1KB will only take up 4KB. The 5KB file will be 8KB (4KB + 4KB). Now let's say you set your cluster size 32KB. Each of those files will be at miniumum 32KB. Since on the DS you really only have games from 8MB to 128MB I say set your cluster size as high as possible. Only reason you wouldn't is say it's a homebrew cess pool with thousands of individual files.
