    To prevent disk thrashing?

    Yes. But you'll need to try it; and the effects will probably vary for different file systems.

    For lots of small files it might speed things up; for lots of big ones it might slow things down. For a mix; you'll need to measure.


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
