Topic: Fat 32

    Fat 32

    I\'ve got PC problems, I might have to nuke the drive and start from scratch. If I do, can anyone tell me if I should be running fat 32 format for GS? I don\'t think I\'m currently running this format.

    If you\'re on NTFS, stay this way, it support bigger file + security + a bit faster on access time due to design.

    If not NTFS, then what FAT16 ???? Damn it! Yes move to fat32 at least!

    Tascam recommends FAT 32 for your gig drives.

    Personally, I would go for FAT32.
    NTFS is a bit slower than FAT32 and I dunno with NTFS, but you can get perfect performances out of FAT32 partitions.

    About the cluster size: that\'s very important: be sure to use 32k clusters for your FAT32 partition. NTFS supports 64k clusters and that should make it faster than FAT32 (I suppose). I\'ve tested NTFS-64k partitions with Gigastudio some months ago and had no problems anyway.

    If you feel like experimenting, go for NTFS-64k, otherwise stay cool with FAT32-32k. Right now I would recommend the last one if you have work to do.

    Best luck,
