wait, not using ntfs? why is that? doesn't ntfs support of sparse files help with fragmentation?

In my sparse file NTFS tests, I've seen qBT create over 30,000 file fragments from a 14 file ~2.5 GB torrent. ~2400 per file! If I wasn't doing it on a ramdrive that's capable of 1 GB/sec even with tiny file fragments, it would've been very slow.
