Word of caution against NTFS.. it\'s a BITCH removing viruses from and doing data recovery on. I run NTFS on only one of my drives, I use it because I need to store video files that are larger than 4GB (FAT32\'s limit.)
Security.. who needs it? Seriously, I doubt that you\'re running Giga on a network that has multiple users. (Or even on a computer with multiple users. Like you\'d let ANYONE touch your music computer. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] )
Stability? I\'ve seen NTFS cause more problems than FAT32. If you get a hard systemlock when NTFS is doing a write, you can get a corrupted drive. No thanks.
Only option? Format the drive using Partition Magic. Or Aefdisk (free). I use a Ghost image of a blank FAT32 drive. It fits on a floppy along with Ghost, and takes 5 seconds to \"format\" the drive as FAT32. Works on anything up to 137GB. Yes, I\'m aware of XP\'s refusal to make a FAT32 drive larger than 32GB upon install, but it has no qualms installing on a 120GB drive preformatted as FAT32.
I\'ve also seen statistics about FAT32 vs NTFS regarding speed, and from what I\'ve read, audio PC\'s benefit more from FAT32.
