[access-uk] Re: NTFS AND FAT

It's also not advisable to convert back from NTFS to FAT32 on an active Windows partition , (The drive yoru your operating system's installed on).

One other major advancement to the change of file system is that NTFS supports larger drive capacitys.

If memory serves me correctly FAT32 supports only up to 120GB of hard drive capacity. Although there was a rumoured fix for this.

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.

Hi,
what is the main difference between NTFS and FAT?  Is it
possible to convert FAT drive into NTFS and NTFS back to
FAT?


Thank you.
