    I\'m assuming that you are comparing FAT-32 to NTFS on Windows 2000 or Windows XP...

    Based on that assumption, here\'s the deal:

    NTFS is less likely to have performance degradation due to fragmentation. However, FAT-32 in raw terms is a little faster (when unfragmented).

    But there is a 2 GB limit on FAT32 files.

    4GB limit on files with FAT32, not 2GB.

    I learned that when capturing video, 18 minutes of raw video is 4 GB.

    Well I\'ve converted to fat 32 and there haven\'t been any problems so far. It\'s faster too.

    Re: FAT 32


    Am I missing something here, because I used Partition magic, and too me it looks like it FAT 32 my whole harddrive, I swear!!

    So now I hear that it only FAT 32 up to 4 GB?

    What about the rest of my drive then. I go back into partition magic and is shows the whole drive in FAt 32

    Please shed some light

    Its dark in here!

    They\'re talking about the size of individual files, not the size of disk partitions.
