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.

edit

henyman got his anser in before mine...he's been mighty quick lately

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
