The NTFS uses a 'journaling' system that logs transactions to help recover from system crashes. MUCH more stable than Fat 32. Only draw back. If you use other operating systems (Win 98, ME), they cannot read the file structure of an NTFS formatted partition. I have two Win98 computers networked to mine, so I installed just the operating system--WinXP--to an NTFS partition. All other data files and program files are contained in Fat 32 partitions. Since nothing goes in the operating system partition except WinXP, there's really no need for the other computers to access that partition. T.O.
