Win 2000 with NTFS v3.1 ?

Hello,

today I noticed something very interisting.
A friend of mine is running Win 2000 with NTFS v3.1 !
This told me Partition Magic v7.0 .
So I am confused, I exepcted Win 2000 uses NTFS v3.0 and not 3.1 . At least I am using Win 2000 and Partition Magic tells me every time NTFS v3.0 !
I am pretty sure he hasn't converted it with a partition programm.
As far as I know WinXP has NTFS v3.1 and NT4 has v1.2 .
He never upgraded or revised an upgrade to another OS.

So I would be interested how this is possible.
Is it possible by a MS Windows Update ? I checked all but didn't find one concerning this issue.
If anybody of you could give me an advise, suggestion or something else, I would thank him very much.

By the way, NTFS v3.1 is safer than v3.0 ... so an update might be useful.

Best regards and happy new year
