Have just bought a Western Digital Elements 640GB USB 2.0 External Desk Top Hard Drive. It's sole purpose will be to preserve a disk image and to hold regular backups of document files. It's default file system is FAT32.Question is, what is the consensus view regarding NTFS. Is it really worth going to the trouble of reformatting the drive?TIA,db.
Yes, go for NTFS - it only takes minutes to format the drive.
Fully agree with Technotiger. NTFS handles big files much better. I formatted my external 500gig drive as soon as I got it and use it in the way you describe using Acronis True Image.
Thanks you guys. The drive is now NTFS.
