NTFS is newer and better!

the data doesn’t gets easily corrupted on improper shut-downs

its a bit faster

fat32 doesn’t supports partition size more than 32 GB

Ntfs All The Way......


#5

NTFS is without doubt a lot better than Fat. Fewer data loss and corruption in case of power losses.


#6

also, with FAT32 there's a size limit of 4GB per file.

so let say, if you want to rip a DVD to an ISO/BIN image, the image's gonna be around 4+ GBs, and you'll simply get an error so you'll either have to split the image into 4GB chunks or convert ur drive into NTFS format.

NTFS is much better. (vista wont install on a FAT32 partition, it'll format the partition to NTFS just for the increased performance/security)

I have GHOST 2002 and it doesnt support the NTFS.I know the next version supports the NTFS v.2003 and I bought CD for that too..but very unluckily it was corrupt..so i guess i should go again and buy the ghost v.2003 but it would definitely be not available in my locality..

no pain, no gain!

extra pain would be taken!!!!!
