Just recently purchased a Lexar 64GB jump drive to back up my MP3 collection. I need to know if it's safe to have my jump drive use the FAT32 file system? That's the file system it came with when I bought it brand new. Are my files safe or should I have formatted to NTFS? I tried to format to NTFS before copying my files to it, but the dropdown was blank in the format wizard in win XP so I just left it as FAT32. Please no comments such as NTFS is better as it's not really going to help me
. I've read up a bit on FAT32, but I can't really understand the pros and cons between the two. All I've ever known is that FAT32 doesn't support individual files over 4GB, which doesn't concern me as my files are like 10MB each.
The drive is literally just going to be used as file storage so speed isn't really an issue if that makes any difference. Would really be grateful for a reply.
