Question probably tendered before but what is the generally recommended system... FAT32 or NTFS.
I am home user on stand-alone PC.
Never had problem with FAT. Is there a speed issue? What should I choose and why?

Look in XP Help and Support, it will explain.

NOTE: This is not reversible without reformatting the drive!

If you want the security then NTFS.

If your PC is fine and your happy leave it as FAT32.

If you convert, backup all of your important stuff.
