Default Files aren't allocated before write on Windows

To eliminate heavy file fragmentation, jDownloader should use **External links are only visible to Support Staff**SetEndOfFile function after starting download, so Windows will know exact file's size and he can allocate enough free space beforehand. As it is right now, jDownloader just writes files in chunks without telling Windows what final size will be, so file will get heavily fragmented. I don't know if java doesn't support this, but if it does you could implement this.
