Dear, Ivan

We at DS Productions strive for excellence just as we see you do. You have an excellent blog with a lot of insightful posts helping the everyday person understand computers like professionals like ourselves. We recently received your blog link on yahoo answers to one of our questions asking us to review your blog professionally. We have broken the sections of the review into three main sections. Design, Content, and Traffic.

Design -
The clean design of your website allows for viewers to find what they need and fast. Many people who have their own websites overload them with javascript coding. This can sometimes cause the website to load slower then a cleaner more functional website. We do recommend you place your blog posts in a more forum like design. This would help people find what blog posts they want to read. If someone has a problem with html programming they would like to go to your html programming section and find the appropriate blog post there.

Content -
Our stance on how you write, your content, and how accurate your tips are is from a website design team's prospective very well thought of, and experience radiating style. Very few people are gifted in computer knowledge. A lot of the few people who are gifted in the knowledge keep it to themselves, or require payment for help. We at DS Productions believe in the freedom of knowledge. We help people with their website issues for free. You are using your ability to write, and knowledge of the internet and computers for the good of the Internet community.

Traffic-
You have a very steady, large amount of traffic that visit your website. This obviously shows that you are doing positive things.

Conclusion -
We rate your blog a solid A. You have many factors that attract the eye of the common people. This combined with the abilities of writing and the knowledge of computers has made your blog a very popular destination for people seeking help.

Sincerely,
DS Productions, LLC

Allocation Unit Size is Important

Allocation Unit Sizeshould be taken very seriously in order to Prevent Computer Problems of all sorts, such as Speed Performance, Hard Disk Damage, Loss of files and etc... You see when you format a partition it normally formats it with a default allocation unit size that can be a good thing but it can also be a bad thing.

It's a good thing because when you format the drive with the NTFS files system the default allocation unit size is 4096 bytes which is equal to 4 kilobytes. That very simply means that when you install programs or download any type of data to the computer, the hard disk of the computer will not be very full very quickly.

But unfortunately its a bad thing as well because the files are so physically small since they are running on a Small Allocation Unit Size Partition that the drive will physically be getting fragmented allot more quickly and frequently. The computer will begin to run allot slower all the time.

Now if you format a partition with a Higher Allocati…

exFAT for Windows XP

I respect the exFAT file system so much that I personnaly nicknamed it "DA Extremely Fast File System"

In the Honorable, Long Lasting and Reliable Windows XP, exFAT is available for update download and instalation!

I have formatted all of my USB Flash cards into the exFAT file system cause I know that all the operating systems from XP and above will understand it!

One of my friends has XP and when I plugged in my USB (exFAT formatted) it poped up and it said that I should format my USB! In order to use exFAT for Windows XP all I had to do was download an exFAT update(KB955704) from microsoft!

Although exFAT is designed for USB(removable disks), I risk using it on my second internal Hard Disk for all my web browsing(Temporary Internet Files) and downloads!

Install the following update in order to add support for the exFAT file system format on your computer using Windows XP!

If you are using Microsoft Windows XP Home, Proffesional and/or Media Center and if you l…
