This setting optimizes the contiguous file allocation size for the file system. This is especially useful for disk intensive applications.
Open your registry and find the key below.
Create a new DWORD value named 'ContigFileAllocSize', set the value to equal '200' (in hex).
Close the registry and restart the computer for the change to take affect.

Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem]
Value Name: ContigFileAllocSize
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Data: 200 (hex) or 512 (decimal)
