I bought a My Book from walmart for 99.96, and when I plugged it into my new compaq computer it shows that its 931mb on the har drive it has WD files like backups and all that about 530mb. but also I saw its a Fat32, is this ok or should I format it and change it to the ntfs.
I reformatted my WD 500gb external to NTFS. I think their are file size limitations with FAT32 on windows XP.
I have windows vista home premium sp1- just dont know if I should format and set it up in ntfs or leave it alone, will there be an improvement on the speed?
Probably nothing noticeable speed wise. It will just be more compatible across operating systems as NTFS.
