Any draw backs to using NTFS in XP compared to FAT32?

Anyone had problems?

I did a clean install of XP Pro. using Fat.32, and then installed all my ancillary programs, and drivers.

Then on advice of other members of the forum, I changed to NTFS. Took only a few minutes and no problems at all. Full instructions are in the help file, search for Fat.32 and NTFS. J.

The only real difficulty of NTFS is that your files will not be visible when using a windows boot disk.
