Re: FAT 32 or NTFS ??? - 03-09-2009, 10:54 PM
NTFS all the way. Less file system overhead and more secure. And, if you have to compress the boot drive, it's faster under NTFS than it is under FAT32. NTFS is also more efficient with the cluster size. In FAT32 the clusters will all be 4K, NTFS will go down to 512 bytes (1/2 a K) I believe.
Also, there used to be viruses that would go after FAT32 boot sectors, so you don't want that.
