Default is filesystem slower because of some security enhancement ?

Hi everybody !


OpenBSD FFS compared to MacosX HFS+ is slower ..

* Is this because of some security measures ? secure deletion of files or something else ..
* Is it possible to alter this very feature -secure delete files- , like when files are not that sensitive .. or when dealing with large disks ..

Thank you in advance !

No, I've never done .
I'm not complaining about large disk support .. but file transfer is a bit slower .. from ffs to ffs or msdos ..

It is highly advised for you to study Section 14.6 of the FAQ.

All of the design & implementation decisions made in OpenBSD are not rooted in security-related concerns.
