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.
