Hi Carl,

I prefer NTFS because it is a more secure system. Downside is it
probably is more difficult to boot into NTFS from a normal boot disk.
Having said that, I have two drives in my computer with two partitions
each, all formatted using NTFS and I've never experienced any problems
with this file system.

Of course, you could always download the Ultimate Boot CD which should
get you out of just about any mess. Obtainable here:

Have a good day!

Hi Eric,

Good suggestions.   I'll work on them on my off day tomorrow.

Another thought;   should I convert the C drive to NTFS?
Or should I convert the E drive to FAT?
