FAT32 vs NTFS

By PMaio ·
I am going to upgrade my 4100 to Win2k(Clean install). The main reason I am upgrading is for the increased stability of 2K. The increased security factor is not of great importance to me. Will the stability factor of 2K be affected by the file system I choose(FAT32 or NTFS) ?

FAT32 vs NTFS

As a general rule, you'd want to use FAT32 for multi-OS compatibility (and perhaps a slight performance edge in some applications). For virtually everything else including Stability, NTFS is a superior choice. NTFS is very robust and I would recommend it highly.

Here's an article that discusses both file systems in a Win2k environment:

Hope this helps!
