Windows Vista File System – NTFS ONLY!
After going through a fellow bloggers article regarding the differences between FAT32 and NTFS (Which was something new I learn’t today) I decided to warn any users who were about to upgrade to Windows Vista of a compulsary decision you need to make.
First, I would like you to read over what crystalattice has blogged about in his article about Computer file systems and see the differences – Then you need to think is it really hard on which file system you would like your computer to have… This article is good if you’re sticking to Windows XP as well.
So now that you have decided whether you’d like NTFS or FAT32 and you’re ready to continue upgrading to Vista – STOP THERE!
Did you know that Windows Vista only supports NTFS File Systems? Yes it’s true. If you tried to upgrade to Windows Vista or install it, the installation will force you to convert your file system to NTFS if it is currently in FAT32.
