[guispeak] Re: Uing NTSF or win32 formatting with an Xp Machine

Hi Will,

If you have any worries about NTFS, it is generally good practice to
create a small partition formatted FAT32 just in case you come across
problems.

I very much doubt the format you had on your old drive has anything to
do with it dying on you.

However, if you keep a lot of data, it is worth looking closely at the
drive manufacturers' warranties.  Personally, although reflected in
the cost, I generally look for a five year warranty, and on a basis of
continuous running 24/7/365.  It is essentially what you would expect
of a file server's drives, but in my view, well worth the extra.

George.

Thanks.  Will files from a win32 machine run OK on a ntfs disc?  I kam

guessing the answer is yes.  But there may be facts about this I do
not 
know about.
