FAT32 Info needed!! Tags: FAT32 Partition Storage Last response: May 5, 2007 6:36 PM in Storage Share doombusterfx May 5, 2007 6:04:47 PM Hi, just wanna know what is the maximum Gig a Fat32 partition can handle?? Thanx and have a nice day!!! More about : fat32 info needed yourmothersanastronaut May 5, 2007 6:30:41 PM What do you mean by that, what's the largest partition size a FAT32 can be? Or what's the largest contiguous file size it can hold? Windows XP's formatting utility can create a partition up to 32GB, if you want larger than that you'll need a program like GPartEd or PartitionMagic. The largest file size it can hold is 4GB minus one byte. So if you're planning to use this FAT32 partition to store DVD ISO images, stick with NTFS or use a UNIX file system like EXT3 or ReiserFS. audiovoodoo May 5, 2007 6:36:26 PM This chart might make it a little clearer. I've certainly used 120Gb FAT32 formated drives which I created under Linux to allow me to share files with an XP system. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
