What file system is faster at defragmenting fat32 or ntfs?
ntfs in my experiences.
same, but Ntfs will need defraging less often so it is quicker in the long run
ntfs hardly needs defragmenting, and doing it doesn't affect performance tiil your drive is pretty bad... fat needs it just about every night for performance sake...I guess that means the answer is ntfs.
henyman got his anser in before mine...he's been mighty quick lately
i too think NTFS.
