is there a recommended "disk block/sector size" for storing files

Hi,

Recently i was asked by a client's system administrator what is the recommended(if any) "block size or sector size" when formatting a hard drive to be used for storing Qlikview's QVW and QVD files.

i was never asked thios before and never even thought about it. i guess there is some merit to the question but i dont know the answer

i assume the larger the files the larger the block size should be, but that is just my guess.

i want to know if there is any recomandatin about it from qlik.

thanks for any answer

Daniel

Hi Daniel,

Did you manage to find the answer to your question?  I am setting up a new system and would like to know the block sizes as well.  I can't seem to find anything on this in the docs.

Thanks

Qlik doesn't access the storage directly else the used OS. Therefore I think there is not really a need to set this setting manually - just following the recommendation from the OS by the installation should be ok.
