Re: initial cygwin installation

> What allocation unit size should I specify when formatting?

"Standard 4k or 8k if you don't expect to create tons of small files should work."

surely cygwin *does* create lots of small files on install? is NTFS with 4k okay, or should I make it less?

Is it okay to click 'next' on the screen at;

this would choose 'default' packages

on the top right hand side, from "keep / curr / exp" I should choose "curr" ?

thanks for your advice

That's easy - I'd put it everywhere.
