QuestionConfusion regarding MFT Pin
Waldermort14-Sep-07 20:33
MemberWaldermort14-Sep-07 20:33 
All the documents I have read relating to this topic have left me with gray hair, so I hope somebody here could clear things up a little.

Using the DeviceIoControl() api I can get a NTFS_VOLUME_DATA_BUFFER structure. This structure lists 3 MFT regions ( MFT, MFT2 and MFTZONE ). Each of these regions start at different points on my HD.

Correct me if I'm wrong:
1. The MFT size ( in clusters ) is MftValidDataLength / BytesPerCluster.
2. The MFT2 size is the same as that of MFT.
3. The MFTZone size is MftZoneEnd - MftZoneStart.

Here is where I am confused:
From what I have read the MFTzone is space to be used last to help keep the MFT contiguous on the disk. This leads me to think that the MFT and MFTZone should start at the same cluster, or the MFTZone should start immediatly after the MFT. Why is my MFT located towards the beginning of my volume and the MFTZone towards the end? Is this because at some point it became fragmented?

I have also read about an MFT mirror. Is this the MFT2 above? Regarding this I have read that it's size is the larger of the first 4 records in the MFT or the cluster size. How exactly can I calculate the size?
