    File compression

    And WindowsXP runs more stable (at least from my experience) in NTFS rather than FAT32

    This has been asked several times in the past.
    The last time, several (alleged) computer savvy folks claimed that using FAT32 would allow XP to run faster, so I tried it out.

    Couldn&#39;t tell any difference at all either way.
    Currently I&#39;m on NTFS, but can&#39;t give a good reason why/why not.

    benefits of ntfs as above, plus better security.

    BINGO&#33;&#33; For those of you who have read my other posts, you&#39;ll notice I&#39;m a little paranoid. I&#39;ve had several virus&#39;s and number of trojans. A friend downloaded a prog off Kazaa Lite with a trojan and had the cops call on him. Seems someone ws using his cable modem to hack into sites. OOOPPPSS&#33;&#33;

    Use NTFS to set yourself up as the Administrator with a pasword. Select the drives/folders/files you want to lock out and no one can mess with them without the passkey.

    As for Windows encryption, HAH&#33; Their security, as a whole, sux. I use 2 stand alone apps: CryptoForge and the Steganos Safe. CryptoForge first, then chunk it in the Safe&#33;

    Im probably wrong. But I think soon the fat file system will be obsolete. Kinda like windows 95 and 98 will be soon.
