When I saw the title I thought it was someone wanting help with losing weight!!

That question is way too vague to answer properly - there's lots of different limitations on partition sizes depending on what OS you're running, and even then you get into situations where you can read bigger partitions than you can create - it's all a bit messed up to be honest.

The main limitation people find with FAT32 is that you can't have files bigger than 4GB. No issue back when hard drives were 1/4 that size, but these days people frequently run into that limit.

Sorry what I ment is if I get a 250 GB hard drive or a 512 GB hard drive the number of sectors is doen at the factory. So both hard drive will come with the same number of sectors aready put on it.

And you pick the fat you want
