    for the OS
    On a small disk/partition less than 8gig FAT32 is quicker
    otherwise NTFS is quickest BUT only if its not on a partitioned disk

    but if your talking about loading games quicker FAT32 would be quickest


    I've got 6 x partitions including the boot drive formatted FAT32

    1 x 15gig partition formatted NTFS
    on here I store;
    drive image (the file size is to big for FAT32 - >2gig)
    ..... & ....... a few files that I need to keep away from nosy parkers :p

    NTFS is more efficient ie you get more space on your HD says microsoft.....why dont u get scandisk cum up on xp after a bad shut down is this something to do with ntfs if so then NTFS is faster

    so ntfs is overall better, because speed is same and it offers security ? right ?

    fat32 is actually a tad faster but ntfs is more efficient/stable than fat32 in my experience...

    you will generally not see a discernible difference between the 2..
