Ive bought a maxtor basics personal storage 3200 conected by usb 2.0. This plug and plays as NTFS format giving 298GB. The problem is the Xp Pro OS on my old P3 800mhz 512ram system is FAT32 as i upgraded from 98SE.
Ive read about 32gb being the max size for a specific fat32 partition/format and am just confused with partitioning completely/don't have the software. The main hard drive is just 20gb and im running out of space so ideally i want FAT32 formatted storage on the maxtor but may be upgrading to use again in near future with NTFS based system.
Basically i think i may need short-term 60- 100GB of this in FAT 32 and the rest for future use. This would prob mean doing three partitions of 32GB if this is possible with the rest in NTFS.
Any help appreciated as theres lots of info on this mentioing think like fdisk to do this which im not sure about.
