It is usually NTFS since that allows for very large files, which HD videos certainly are.

Your PVR will format a new drive. Go into the Hard Drive management section and there should be a "Format Drive" option.

What format should I chose to grab it to a PC?


This will depend on which type of computer and operating system you have
if you are referring to formatting your hard drive to a specific format file system NTFS or FAT choose the Ntsf file system is more secure Ntfs is more powerful than Fat or Fat32 and includes features required for hosting Directory as well as other important security features . You can use features such as Active Directory and Domain - based security only by choosing Ntfs your file system Its easy to convert Partitions to Ntfs . The set up programs conversion makes it easy whether your partitions used Fat or Fat32 or the older version of Ntfs .This kind of conversion keeps your files intact (unlike formatting a partition). If you do not need to keep your files intact and you have a FAT or FAT32 partition, it is recommended that you format the partition with NTFS rather than convert from FAT or FAT32. Formatting a partition erases all data on the partition and allows you to start with a clean drive.

hope this helps you

Hi, I have an iomega Prestige 2tb desktop hard drive which i was using on a PC but now want to use it for my macbook pro. How do i reformat the hard drive for Mac? Thankyou


Connect it to your Mac and open Disk Utility. Find the disk in the left pane of the Disk Utility window, click on it, then click the Erase tab in the right pane. Choose your format, then click the Erase button. If the disk does not appear in the left pane or is grayed out, click the Erase or Partition tab first, then select the disk.

Note: the "MS-DOS" format is the FAT-32 filing system. You will have to partition the volume (Partition tab) to use it since FAT-32 cannot cover the entire drive in one partition (I think it is limited to 80 GB). Microsoft won't let Apple use an NTFS volume for Write operations, but FAT-32 can be read and written by both Mac and Windows systems. If you think you may want to use the drive to share files with the PC, make two partitions - one formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and a smaller one formatted as FAT-32.

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.

I want to format my 2 T hard drive from NTSF to fat 32 , how to do please help


Ok this fix will erase all Partitions on the drive, Make sure you have all data back'd up.
Open Command:
Go to Start menu > All programs > Accessories, right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator. Or Type cmd in Start menu search box and hit Ctrl+ Shift+ Enter.
You should have a black MS-DOS prompt on your screen. Type DISKPART in and press enter. Another window will open
Type: list disk It will the display list of devices with memory storage. Find your disk, It should be in a Table(kinda). You have to locate it by its size. so look for 1TB(1000GB) In this Example its Disk 2, yours may differ.
type in: Select disk 2
Execute the rest one by one: CLEAN CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SELECT PARTITION 1 FORMAT FS=FAT32 ASSIGN EXIT
Wait for one command to complete before running another
You should be left with a working FAT32 Device :P

File System of USB Pen Drive


You will not be unable to access your files on other computers because of the file permissions that go along with NTFS. I would recommend Fat32 if you are thinking of using those files everywhere you go, but stick with NTFS if you want the security.

Im not sure why the volume label appears in blue but im pretty sure its not virus related.
