    I've just got myself hold of a new hard drive & I'm about to install Windows XP pro on it. Is it best to format & partition this using NTFS or Fat32 File System. Any advatages over each other? Security Issues?

    I have formatted my hd in NTFS. I like ntfs alot better cause it automatically logs the abunch of the main parts u need in start up and stuff. And doesnt crash. I say if your gonna install xp go with ntfs.

    NTFS all the way...more secure..plus, when you crash (and you will), no more of that stupid Scandisk stuff! I think it seems faster that FAT32, but that's just me.
