    @croydan1 The drive is formatted as Fat32, you need to reformat it as NTFS - preferably with a 64KB Blocksize.



  • @haitch ok cool did notice I'm a little under the weather so to speak



  • @croydan1 did not notice



  • @croydan1 so now this is what I get C:\Users\croyd\Downloads\XPlotter.v1.0>xplotter_avx.exe -id 9611890149370107819 -sn 900000001 -t 8 -path I:\burst\plots 32G

  • @haitch What is the benefit of selecting 64kb unit size? I just finished all my drives, but I may go back through them if there is some benefit over the standard 4k bytes?

    @DougLife 64KB should be slightly faster.

    try doing:
    open a cmd prompt (start -> Run -> cmd )
    md i:\burst
    md i:\burst\plots
    then plot



  • @DougLife Is just due to the plotting speed. I am not aware if it could have any effect on mining, but I don;t think so.
