Serialized Files on disk?
I´m quite sure, that it´s not possible, but as it would be GREAT, if it was possible, I want to ask you anyway :)
Is it possible to make sure, that the file, which I want to store anywhere (on the disk) is not splitted into several parts, but stored off the reel?
Thank you very much,
Outlook not so good.
What exactly do you want to archive? That the file is written in one block to the disk into a sectors next to each other?
Why would you want to bother with file-system specific of the on-disk formats?

Exactly. I want to avoid, that the reading head has to move to often, as I´d like to read as fast as possible.
Get an SSD? :-)
Serious answer: that is not for a mere user-land application to decide. What you are after is deep in the OS & File system layers of your system. Far outside the reach of Qt.
This is, what I expected. Thank you.
As the program shall be used by other people, I cannot force them, to use SSD. But this shall be their problem :-p
