    Re: Is FAT32 or NTFS better for Direct from Disk streaming?

    Hi Denny, this question has come up a few times. Neither file format is significantly better for audio than the other. A couple of things to consider though...

    - NTFS is fractionally slower than FAT but is more stable, gives you more security options.

    - NTFS used to be better for large file partitions but I\'m not sure that this is the case anymore. FAT32 has come a long way...

    - If you have a file (samples) drive with an NTFS partition, you wont be able to put it into any Win 9x operating system. Only NT/2K/XP and soon... Longhorn. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Is FAT32 or NTFS better for Direct from Disk streaming?

    I just bought a 160 gig drive for Vienna SL using Kontact and I\'ll need to chop it up a bit. Any file system or partitioning recommendations for performance?

    thanks!

    My experience has been that Xp with NTFS works MUCH better than Win 98 with Fat 32.
