comment Should I keep my swap file on an SSD drive?
This answer is plainly incorrect. I downloaded the linked document on 11/22/2011. 1) the quote given is incorrect. The full quote is: "We recommend disabling page file for a 2 GB flash storage device because of the potential impact that the page file has on the flash storage device lifetime, and the reduced free space for additional applications and user data on the flash storage device." 2) it is clear that MS are talking about typical USB and SD flash here, not SSD.

comment Performance of file operations on thousands of files on NTFS vs HFS, ext3, others
NTFS does indeed preallocate space for the MFT. See msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa365230(VS.85).aspx - see also the very informative Four Stages of NTFS File Growth: blogs.technet.com/b/askcore/archive/2009/10/16/…
