Default windows xp defaults

I was out looking at a friends computer today. i noticed a few things about it
It was bought year/two ago and its had windows xp on it fomrt he beginning. What is the default file system? Cause it had FAT32, but isnt default NTFS??
Another funny thing about the hard disk is its very very loud (and not fast). i dont hear my hdd at all. do you guys? or do you just think the hard disk is even older than the actual comp?
it was built by some guy custom.

cheers

Hi jay8990,
If your hard drive is making noise, you have to be careful. It is better to take the important data backup before it stops working. The nise it is making is the early warning. Have you taken the Ghost of the drive?
You can refer the following article for data backup and to recover data from Ghost image.

some drives are just noisy...are you talking about the clicking the drive makes? or the motor spinning it? I would back it up anyway too
