Does anyone know how I find out which file system I have?, NTFS or FAT32? Thanks Dave

But usually if your hard drive is quite small (under about 30Gb) is would be a FAT32 file system[/QUOTE=
I have a 60Gb and it's FAT32 I knew I saw it somewhere? Wish it was NTFS tho Thanks Dave
Thanks Billy, I was aware there was a way to convert to NTFS, just wasn't sure which one I had LOL. I'll be replacing my hard drive in another year or so and that will mean a 'reformat' so I'm thinking I'll switch to NTFS then.

I'm not sure exactly what your saying chazshep but I am running XP and it's not an upgrade. It is a full OEM copy that was installed on this computer when it was built 2 1/2 years ago. Thanks Davechazshep said:if it is a fat32 on windows 2000 there is a 32Gb limit on a partition i had got confused it says at Microsoft that the fat32 drives are only found on windows 95,98,200 and ME versions of windows. unless you probably upgraded to XP.
