In terms of disaster recovery is it better/worse/no consequence to have your Boot Disk (partition) Fat32 or NTFS? WinXP Pro will be the OS.

It seems like a lot of disaster recovery utilities only work on Fat32 partitions, or have I missed some?

What do you guys like for Backup/Disaster Recovery?


thanks

NTFS. It is designed to keep your system secure and reliable.

:smile: Good or Bad have no meaning at all, depends on what your point of view is.

NTSF is definately the way to go.

Actually I have had much better luck recovering files from NTFS than FAT 32. There are plenty of great recovery tools that support NTFS, the problem is that there are no free or cheap tools yet.

I have had excellent results with Final Data 1.0 and 2.0 as well as Forensic Utilities Suite (Recover NT).
