    Good Day To All,

    Does any one know the pros v cons of switching a drive from FAT 32 to NTSC file format? This is for a slave or second drive, the master is a NTSC and the slave USB drive is a FAT 32.

    Best Regards,
    Marty

    I think you mean NTFS rather than NTSC.

    Here is an article that compares them.

    In addition to Stuart's reference, here's another on Tech Net where it mentions the maximum partition size limitation in FAT32 and the maximum file size of 4 GB (MB was my error!). Those two points can be VERY important in today's environment of very large drives and very large backup files of such drives:

    NTFS compared to FAT and FAT32
