    NTFS vs. FAT32 (Win XP)

    My new laptop was delivered with a FAT32 file system surprisingly. MS recommends NTFS so are there sufficient technical advantages for me to convert the file system over to NTFS? Is the conversion process risk free? I assume it can be done without having to reformat the hard disk using the DOS command Convert.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
