Good article ..

There is a slight potential security risk associated which is described here http://blogs.msdn.com/b/askjay/archive/2011/03/11/why-is-using-instant-file-initialization-on-my-sql-server-a-potential-security-issue.aspx

Some misconceptions are well explained here: http://www.sqlskills.com/BLOGS/PAUL/post/Misconceptions-around-instant-file-initialization.aspx



Thank you for adding these great references to mitigate the risks.
