Evening guys and girls.
I used to use windows 98se, and now i'm on xp.
98SE had files in FAT32 format, but when installing xp I chose to format my hard disk and install xp in NTFS. My question is, when I copy the contents of my old 98SE 'my documents' folder into my new xp 'my documents' folder from my backup cd, am I gonna have any problems? Thanks.

Xp can read both types of format so you should be ok.

Should'nt be any problem.

Excellent! I thought it did, but wasn't sure if the 2 types could co-exist on one hard disk!

I'll put it all back on tomoz.
Thanks guys.

They won't co exist as when you copy the files to your ntfs hard drive they will be there in ntfs state.
