Hi All, Just a quick question, What is the best file system to use with windows XP, FAT32 or NTFS and what is the difference between the two, thanks in advance for any replys cheers.
On any system with an NT core, it is highly recommended to use NTFS v5.0 plus for maximum efficiency. I'm not arguing this on the basis of security as you may not need to secure your computer, but for NT kernals it offers far greater performance.
My thoughts are if you have XP in FAT 32, leave it like that. If you don't have XP installed yet then load it with the NTFS file system.There is a risk attached to converting FAT -> NTFS as I found out once. Don't try it unless you have a full system backup.Brian
Good point, forgot to touch on that matter.
What size drive are you considering using FAT32 or NTFS on? Is it a drive that will be formatted and a fresh install of XP implemented, or are you considering an existing drive?Will you need to network (on your own LAN) with a W98 or WinME PC?
