There are a couple of tricks to speed up NTFS. I havn't seen them do
that much in the real world, but if you're benchmarking.....

Firstly, turn of 'update access time':
        fsutil behavior set disablelastaccess 1

Turn off the 8.3 filename creation:
        fsutil behavior set disable8dot3 1

Turn off all the "useful" windows services, like indexing, and make sure
you're not using compression (or encryption). Turn off system restore
for the partition too.
