Windows users have three file system option to choose from: the original(but rarely-used) FAT file system, the newer FAT32 file system, and the newest NTFS file system. The recommended file system for windows XP and Vista computers is NTFS because it supports much larger drives and files than either FAT or FAT32 and it includes better security and error-recovery capabillities. PCs with older versions of Windows would need to use FAT32, which has a maximum patition size of 32 GB and a maximmum size of 4GB.
