Way to Speed Up Windows Xp by defragmenting disk


Ensure that Windows XP is utilizing the NTFS file system. If you're not sure, here's how to check: First, double-click the My Computer icon, right-click on the C: Drive, then select Properties. Next, examine the File System type; if it says FAT32, then back-up any important data. Next, click Start, click Run, type CMD, and then click OK. At the prompt, type CONVERT C: /FS:NTFS and press the Enter key. This process may take a while; it's important that the computer be uninterrupted and virus-free. The file system used by the boot-able drive will be either FAT32 or NTFS. I highly recommend NTFS for its superior security, reliability, and efficiency with larger disk drives.

Will i be about to use with both my laptop running Windows 7 AND my desktop running Windows XP? is making a seperate folders for each computer enough?


Yes, because boyj Windows xp and windows 7 utilize the NTFS file system. If it was windows 2000 or earlier, they wouldn't, as they would have different file systems. NTFS versus FAT32 for the older operating systems.

What is the difference between ntfs & fat


This are the difference between the two.

File Allocation Table (FAT): A file system used by MS-DOS and other Windows-based operating systems to organize and manage files. The file allocation table (FAT) is a data structure that Windows creates when you format a volume by using the FAT or FAT32 file systems. Windows stores information about each file in the FAT so that it can retrieve the file later.

NTFS: An advanced file system that provides performance, security, reliability, and advanced features that are not found in any version of FAT. For example, NTFS guarantees volume consistency by using standard transaction logging and recovery techniques. If a system fails, NTFS uses its log file and checkpoint information to restore the consistency of the file system. In Windows 2000 and Windows XP, NTFS also provides advanced features such as file and folder permissions, encryption, disk quotas, and compression.

Installing windows xp --------- Plz tell me that what should be the partition of 40gb HDD if u want to install xp.What should be the file system NTFS OR FAT32?is it true that ntfs is bad for HDD


Choose “NTFS” as it is faster and more secure. It is not bad for your HDD. If you don't have any other Hdd you might want to upgrade. They don't make 40gb hdd any more, XP will take about half that when it installed. It really limits what you will be doing with your computer in the near future.

I hope this helps.. Good luck

IBM Netvista 6059 - Can't upgrade to windows XP


Right well XP Pro really MUST be formatted with NTFS only... I suggest you get a third party partitioning program like Partition magic and completely remove the partition & redo it all again & this time Format NTFS. Or if ya have a WIN98 boot disk, and ya can use FDISK, Delete ALL partitions, and remake them again, using all the disk space, then format as NTFS, then proceed as below Then using your windows XP PRO setup Disk, start the install ...then when asked about where you want the install located, select C & REFORMAT it AGAIN with the windows setup using again NTFS file system... this should finish & then the Install should "see" your entire hard drive and format it accordingly and then when finished you can proceede to install XP.
