[access-uk] Re: NTFS AND FAT

Hi Ali,

Are you quite sure the drive will not work with the NTFS
format?

That said, perhaps the easiest way is to reformat the drive.
If you use XP to do this, you can select which format you
want.

Thanks George.
I have an external drive formatted as NTFS and I wish to use
it on my note taker.  The problem is that I need to format
it into FAT32 to be able to use it.  Is there anywhere of
converting into FAT?

Thank you.

Hi Ali,

In very simple terms, NTFS supports very much larger sizes
of disk drive.  It also supports much more in the way of
security, enabling you to hide and share files and folders.
It is also a more robust format, less prone to corruption.

There is a utility in XP to convert from FAT to NTFS, but
not the other way round.  That said, I believe programs like
Partition Magic can do this.

George.
