Ok, first off, how do I find cluster size in NTFS, and how do I set it w/o deleting my data?

What if you had admin rights to life?

erm... typically you set it upon formatting.
doubt you can change it without reformatting.
if you dont specify anything it uses the default of 4k.

as for finding out the size... try a chkdsk in a dos window, or drive properties under drive manager (in win2k)

NOTE: certain defrag programs can have problems if the cluster size is over 4k.
