I just bought a new 4 TB hard disk for my photographies and I would like to prepare it to copy all my photos there. This hard disk will ONLY consist of photo file (CanonRAW *.cr2; >20MB each file) (maybe a few jpg's as well some MByte filesize) and folders. There will be no other files, especially no files under several megabyte file size!
I use Windows 8.1 or later on maybe o newer Windows OS. I edit my photos with Adobe Lightroom. This hard disk is not a backup, it will be my archive. I'll back it up some where else.
My questions are: What disk format shall I use and why? ntfs, fat, etc..? Maybe there is a disk format predestined for this kind of usage?
Which disk cluster size shall I choose? Since that disk will consist of bigger files (apprx. 10-30MB per file) only, a bigger cluster size might be better?
