Partition File System

Recommended Posts

So..I'm making a Partition just for most of my data files.

Like my music, and movies, and Programs, etc... NO OS will be installed on this partition.

So...which file system should I choose when making this partition?

NTFS?

Fat32?

ReiserFS? Don't know much about it...but heard the guy that found it is in jail. Ouch...

Right now, I'm dual booting with vista 32bit & vista 64bit (don't ask....just blame it on drivers).

I plan to use Linux in the future and I want too access my music and videos from the partition on the linux OS?

Fat 32 has a file size limit of 4gig so if you plan to achive video (a DVD is ove 4gig) go with NTFS. NTFS also offers better security

ReiserFS if a linux file system windows would not see it but many Linux flavors can read and write ntfs and definitely FAT32.
