hi amar this is srikanth ntfs is microsoft's premium file system it is
better secured and no matter what ever the software may be it works
fine whether fat or ntfs but only reason we prefer fat is to have back
word compatibility to have a duel o.s I.E when we prefer win 98 or m.e
along with XP ntfs does not work. microsoft is planning to remove fat
according to a recent news article released by microsoft when vista
was released. so the future operating systems may not have fat in it.
