When cluster size needs to be changed and to what value in Rufus.
I usually see 4096, but ie in windows has also a Default value (not stated) for formating.

Nowadays with the M2 drives do we have to change cluster size to ie higher value and
what about file system combinations.

Is NTFS good choice for future usage or not.

Generally speaking, the smaller allocation unit size on the hard drive can help save storage space better. Although the larger allocation unit size can help save much time in reading data, it will waste some space. It seems that the smaller the SSD cluster size is, the more drive space you can save. In fact, that is not the case. When a large file is divided into several chunks based on the given allocation unit size, it will cost more time when reading the data. Besides, larger unit sizes can lead to more writes over time and then cause more wear and tear on your SSD.
When you are formatting an SSD drive, the allocation unit size is set by default based on the partition size. So, the recommended allocation unit size for SSD should be the defaults. To get default allocation unit size for SSD with NTFS, FAT32 and exFAT, you can go through this link -> https://support.microsoft.com/en-US/topic/default-cluster-size-for-ntfs-fat-and-exfat-9772e6f1-e31a-00d7-e18f-73169155af95
