How can I calculate the number of free clusters that exist on a freshly formateed NTFS 1.0 TB hard drive?
I began running chkdsk (osn an external USB connected hard drive) about 12 hours ago and it has thus far completed the checking of 1,500,000 free clusters.
Is a cluster simply the allocation unit size? (AKA the smallest possible filesize?)
Because if it's ~4kb and my drive has 1,099,511,627,776 bytes that means there are 268,435,456 total free clusters and my entire chkdsk session will take about 2,150 hours to complete.
Should I just cancel the chkdsk and redo it from a SATA port?
