NTFS or FAT what should be the choice?

By mdimran1 ·
I simply have a dekstop with pentium D
HDD 250 GB,

I wish to partition it in a nice manner, such that i can keep one ( or two OS ), one of which would be XP PRO. and rest of partitions for my various types of data.

having read lot about benefits of NTFS, I am still not clear what should be the choice for me?

one ( or a few ) NTFS partitions for OS's ?
All partitions NTFS ?

Half NTFS and half FAT32?

I do'nt want to utilize file encryption (if) in NTFS

in case of bad events of data corruption, are there good utilities to recover/ repair NTFS partitions?

for FAT32 I know few utilities which directly boot a PC independent of OS and provide recovery/repair environment at very deep level, fat32 file system is easy to understand in those bad days.

please suggest
