    I have two hard drives in my computer and I use windows XP.
    One drive says it is NTFS - the other drive says it is FAT32.
    should they be the same??
    Which is the best? NTFS or FAT32?
    Is it easy to change them?? What should I do.
    Thanks!

    I belive NTFS has better security or something but gets cluttered faster. Newer machines such as XP OS's run on NTFS . I think formatting it can change it but im not sure

    i think ntfs is newer (windows N T Filing System) therefore should be better but id look into it a bit more if i were u before u do something drastic.
