I have just arrived home with a new 320Gb external USB drive that I intend to use to backup my computer. It is preformatted to FAT32. Should I leave it as it is, or reformat it to NTFS? I am using Windows XP Pro.
In my opinion leave it as it is if it is to be used for backups.
I have an external Western Digital "My book" HD, and using it for back-ups. In essence it is up to your use, do you want extra security features of NTFS or is FAT sufficient.More info click hereclick here
If you leave as Fat 32, in emergency you should be able to access that CD from a Boot Floppy disk, however on NTFS you will lose that option.I use a External USB for backup, however I only switch it on when I actually need it, therefore security is not an option for me.Terry
